Hamburg, Germany, February 8th 2016 – The first DLC of Valhalla Hills takes players right into the desert! Daedalic and Funatics add a whole new setting with this expansion: The Vikings travel from the northlands to the desert to settle on a much flatter mountain surrounded not by an ocean but by moving sands. Fishing is now only fishing in oases, before growing crops they have to install an irrigation system. And the desert is full of dangers: Mummies attack relentlessly and scorpions lurk in the sands.
In addition to the DLC a large update will add various new features. Dwellings, for example, have been overhauled and there will be new, better tools for hunters and couriers. Also the work flow of the Vikings has been optimized. They will now coordinate their tasks and goods will be delivered to the place they’re needed most.
About Valhalla Hills
Valhalla Hills is a modern strategy game inspired by classic game designs like “The Settlers II” or “Cultures”.
The player has to lead the exiled Viking heroes to the highest peak of a mountain, where a magic portal leads the way to Valhalla. But the Vikings need to do one thing first: survive!
The player has to face the dangers and challenges of the harsh mountains and find a way to the peak. Since the Vikings wouldn’t last long in the mountains, they have to take care of clothing, food and shelter and defend against ghostly mountain dwellers and wild beasts. These sturdy people have their own head and since a good keg of mead is a solid reason to slack around, all this is easier said than done. However, another threat looms, coming from out of the mountain…
