It’s not often that we find a browser-based game that is fun, unique, and easy to pick up, but that’s exactly what we’ve discovered when playing Nords: Heroes of the North.
For those that don’t know, Nords: Heroes of the North is a browser-based strategy game that introduces RPG and MMO elements, to give the game a fresh feeling. The developers, Plarium, have a lot of experience making online strategy games, and it shows when you play Nords. Plarium are the guys behind Stormfall: Age of War, and Pirates: Tides of Fortune, so you’re in safe hands with these guys.
Anyone familiar with browser-based strategy games will feel at home when playing Nords: Heroes of the North. The game features some really well thought out mechanics and features, which will keep you coming back for more:
- Over 30 units from 4 factions, each with their own strengths and weaknesses for you to send into battle.
- Excellent voice acting from over 30 different professional voice actors. This makes all of the different characters in the game have their own personalities, from the main heroes, down to the basic units.
- In-depth social aspects. Players can form clans, and battle for control of the map, creating rivalries and a sense of community.
Overall, we think that this game is definitely worth a try, hence its place in the Game of the Day list. Cross-platform functionality is also on its way, so it will be the first mobile strategy MMO from Plarium that can be played in browser, on mobile, and also on Facebook at the same time. This is definitely one to watch, as we believe it will grow fast.
