NetEase Games' upcoming RPG Vikingard is now available on Early Access across regions in the US and Brazil. According to GamingonPhone, eager fans can now have a go at the "casual simulation RPG" on Google Play, getting first dibs on the title after it was initially announced at NetEase Connect 2021.

In Vikingard, players can grow crops and make their land flourish, reclaiming territories and making sure the harvest is profitable along the way. Players inherit a tribe that they'll have to be responsible for in order to survive the perils that come with the Scandinavian winter - of course, it's not all about the peaceful farm life here. There will also be action-packed brawls with Viking warriors along with an engaging storyline and gorgeous visuals.
