Featuring new content developed by the Exozet team, Mystics of Midgard replicates one of the physical expansions of the Blood Rage board game, adding a new layer of strategy for players. The DLC will introduce seven Mystics, special units - neither Warrior nor Monster - that possess different powers granted by their connection to the gods; these warrior shamans can be employed once players have given one of their seven clans the Mystic Clan upgrades. In addition, Mystics of Midgard also features six new Gifts of the Gods card, giving players multiple new strategies to earn their place in Valhalla.
A faithful digital adaptation of the legendary Viking board game designed by Eric Lang, with art by Adrian Smith, Blood Rage: Digital Edition is heavily focused on combat and terrain control, letting players control one of the seven ancient Viking clans: the Wolf, Bear, Serpent, Raven, Ram, Wild Boar and Stag clan. With each clan featuring unique warriors, leaders and ships, players can draft the best cards, pillage lands, fulfill quests and upgrade units to lead their clan to victory.
