Northgard: The Vikings Strategy Video Game for Linux


Northgard is a fantastic video game that you will find in the famous Valve store, Steam. As promised and announced on LxA, it is now available for Linux, so a new title to add to the list of video games available for our distro. Shiro Games has kept its word and in addition the video game will also meet the expectations that we expect from a strategy video game like this.

They seem to have had some initial launch issues, but It has arrived and I suppose they will refine it even more with the passage of time. Some who have already tried it have had quite positive comments, but what seems to be giving some problems is when executing it on certain GNU / Linux distributions, since we can find that certain packages are needed to be able to launch it. Those packages are the wayland graphical server, wayland-egl, and the libbsd library. Certainly that is not too big a problem, they are installed and that's it, also many other packages have their dependencies that must be satisfied ... It is not the end of the world. But not only are there the comments of the gamers, since many are also reporting that they cannot play multiplayer because they need the key «466560» within the steam_appid.txt file, so we will have to add it with a text editor or with a simple echo.

Once the game is running with those initial problems that I suppose its developers will fix soon, we can see the missions and get to play. And it is then that all these errors are forgotten when see how wonderful the Northgard title is for strategy lovers. Some of the things that stand out about it is that you can transform any villager into a peasant or train him to become a warrior, differentiating himself from other games that already create a specific profile and you cannot change it ...
