Northgard hits 2 million copies sold, Clan of the Lynx DLC is out now

By - | Views: 10,041

After recently announcing an impressive 2 million copies sold milestone, Shiro Games have released the Clan of the Lynx DLC for their strategy game Northgard.

"Led by Mielikki, the Beastmaster, and her lynx companions, Brundr and Kaelinn, Northgard's newest force excels at hunting more so than open warfare. Prowl through dense forests, stalking animals and mythological creatures, and return victorious with Hunting Trophies to unlock powerful abilities for the fearsome felines."

Being able to call on Brundr and Kaelinn during fights for a quick advantage sounds like it might be quite amusing.

Northgard's Clan of the Lynx features unique new bonuses including:

  • Feast costs reduced by 5% per animal killed
  • Archery Ranges replace Axe Thrower Camps, training powerful ranged units armed with longbows
  • The Path of the Hunter replaces Military Paths, unlocking lynx abilities after successful pursuits
  • Fame bonuses for Lures and Mielikki’s Oskoreia ability

Nice to see another Linux game doing so well.

You can buy Northgard from Humble Store, Steam and GOG (Single-player only on GOG). The DLC costs around $4.99 / €4.49 / £3.99.

There is a time limit to complete the objective. The objective requires an enormous amount of food stored. One of the failures, we didn't even know how much food we needed. Another, we ran out of time.

That does sound tedious. Not something I enjoy in a game.

No offense but maybe you did something wrong...

I finish the History Mode in Hard (at a moment where it was harder than now). If I remember well, you don't need food amount in the first mission... You just need to discover and get north of the map then build a Drakkar Dock. Nothing else...

I second that... I haven't played Northgard since a long time, so I started the campaign again and did the first mission. Just went to the indicated region and built the docks. If there were any other requirements, they are probably low enough that I could get the mission done without even knowing about those requirements.

Northgard is a very cool game, I just bought another copy to send a friend to play with

Quite.

We must not be on the first mission then. Maybe the second.

EDIT: OK, my friend and I are trying to beat a conquest. I took a screenshot. The objective requires a large amount of food to conquer, which came as a surprise.

Oh well, I don't know the conquest mode.

Many of the conquest missions are quite hard, and might require multiple tries. Also, this is only the first mission for the Goat clan specifically - each other clan has their own first mission. So if you dislike this one, you could try with a different clan (each clan has a number of fixed missions, and gets a random path with missions for other clans - so at least you have a choice to not do missions you dislike from other clans).

To be honest, I really don't like the Yggdrasil mission either, or the Goat clan in general. But I do like conquests a lot, in part because they are quite challenging (but also, varied!). Conquests add a lot of replayability to the game, but if you are having trouble maybe you would prefer to play some normal skirmishes first (as a team, against some AIs) if you aren't tired of that already - I got the impression that you are new to the game, but don't want to assume.

That reminds me why I stopped playing the campaign. One mission you have to play as the developers secretly intended: Early attack instead of building up your base. If you do not play it that way, the rest of the mission will be unbeatable because of constant attacks.

Because of this, I stopped playing the game after just a couple of missions.
