Age of Empires Online will soon add a new faction to the mix – the hardy Norse.

As detailed on the free-to-play strategy game’s blog, the Norse civilisation has the following units and structures:

    Norse key units:
  • Throwing Axeman
  • Berserker
  • War Dog
  • Seer
  • Chief
  • Raider
    Norse unique structures:
  • Longhouse
  • Outpost

More details through the link above, or check out the game’s Twitch channel to see the new units in action.

Age of Empires Online launched with just two free civilisation choices, Greeks and Egyptians, before adding Persian, Celt and Babylonian options as premium additions. The game is now entirely free to play; you can purchase access to new civs or earn them in-game.
