We have compiled successful games based on Scandinavian and Viking culture. Here are the best Viking games, some of which stand out with the components of the strategy genre, while some of them managed to get a passing grade from the players with pure action.
The Best Viking Games
God of War
God of War, which is not only based on Scandinavian mythology but also weaves its own story, is among the most successful works the game world has ever seen. The production, which received a passing grade from us in every aspect, from its gameplay mechanics to its story, from its music to its description of the world, succeeded in establishing a throne in the hearts of millions of players.
The survival game Valheim, which you can play with your friends, asks players to transform into fearless warriors and write their own legends for Odin. Combining exploration, superbuilding and survival mechanics, Valheim must fight against the mighty creatures of the realm and win them all.
In the game where we are responsible for establishing the settlement of a Viking colony, you can become the leader of your clan and embark on a long construction adventure in the cold lands of the north. A delightful game for those who love Viking culture, Frozenheim is also one of the newest productions on our list.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
Developed by Ninja Theory, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice combines stunning visuals with a journey into the depths of the mind. Accompanying the Celtic warrior Senua’s terrifying journey, the production establishes a fascinating connection between mythology and mental illness.

Song of Iron
In Song of Iron, where we give life to an indomitable Viking warrior whose village is on fire, you have to keep on going non-stop and go against giants, creatures and even gods as well as the warriors of the enemy clan. We can say that Song of Iron is one of the best Viking games that stands out with its simplicity but offers enjoyable hours despite its minimal structure.
Reaching a Very Positive rating with over 35,000 reviews on Steam, Northgard combines Viking mythology with clan management and strategic elements. Players aim to develop their clan by protecting it from dangers on a mysterious continent. Northgard is also one of the best strategy games you can play.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
With Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, players take the place of raider Eivor and go on an adventure that exceeds tens of hours. If you purchase additional packages in the game, which invites Viking lovers to an endless adventure, you can travel to Ireland and take part in the Siege of Paris.
Ubisoft’s For Honor reveals the endless struggle of the Samurai, Knight and Viking clans. Reviving Viking lovers with its successful animations and impressive battles, For Honor offers the opportunity to give life to the indomitable warriors named Berserker and go into battle.
Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia
The Britannia ring of the Total War Saga series invites fans of the strategy genre to a never-ending struggle, this time of diplomacy and war on British soil. In the game where you control northern raiders, you can lead Viking armies to the prosperous Anglo-Saxon land.
Mount and Blade: Warband – Viking Conquest
Mount and Blade: Warband’s standalone expansion Viking Conquest blends the beloved Mount and Blade formula with an immersive Viking adventure. We recommend Viking Conquest, where we find blood on our sword in Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon lands, especially for Mount and Blade: Warband lovers.
The Banner Saga
With The Banner Saga trilogy, you can plunge into an unforgettable story and learn a lot about journey, friendship and struggle. With its deep structure and gripping story, The Banner Saga invites those who love Norse culture to an incredible adventure.
