Portal Games Announces Imperial Settlers: Empires of the North

For fans of Imperial Settlers, a new card game is in the works from Portal Games. It's called Empires of the North, and, as one would expect from the name, it takes players up to the cold northlands, where Norse tribes live. Will you be able to successfully raid and pillage for supplies to keep your settlements going?

From the announcement:

Today, Portal Games released more details of the upcoming Imperial Settlers: Empires of the North, a new card game set in the Imperial Settlers universe from designer Ignacy Trzewiczek. Inspired by Imperial Settlers, Empires of the North draws familiar mechanics from its predecessor and introduces new concepts that make this game stand out. This is the third game in the Imperial Settlers line following Imperial Settlers: Roll & Write which released in the second quarter of 2019.

Empires of the North expands the world of Imperial Settlers into the northern seas with six Nordic clans from three unique factions. Players familiar with Imperial Settlers will recognize the resources and building mechanics but will face new challenges with resource management, and raids. The clans of the Nordic seas have decided to set sail for distant lands to conquer and pillage. Resource management plays a crucial role in Empires of the North and players will face a whole new set of challenges in trying to find new resources, and keep them for themselves!

“Over the past 5 years, Imperial Settlers became a worldwide phenomenon with 13 localized editions and 6 expansions, and we knew we wanted to expand on this world” said Ignacy Trzewiczek, designer and CEO of Portal Games. “This year, with the release of Imperial Settlers: Roll and Write, and Empires of the North, we want to offer players more unique games and experiences in the Imperial Settlers universe.”
