Viking Christmas Comes to Valhalla Hills

Even the Vikings get into the Christmas spirit with a new update to Valhalla Hills, the strategy game from Daedalic and Funatics. This latest update brings seasonal decoration to the Viking villages.

And, perhaps more importantly, parts of the mountain are now shrouded in the Fog of War, making those parts invisible to the player. What is hidden there? Only the boldest will find out!

The update is available now, and will automatically download upon launching the game.
