Jotun: Valhalla Edition
In this hand-drawn action and exploration game, you will play the character of Thora, a Viking warrior deprived of a glorious death who will have to rub shoulders with the Nordic Gods to enter Valhalla. It’s up to you to impress them by traversing this frozen Pantheon and overcome the various threats using your huge axe. During your journey, you will have to get your hands on various runes in order to free the jotuns, the Nordic elemental giants.
To help you in your task, you can count on your trusty ax but also various skills. Test your skills during the game’s main campaign, but also the Valhalla mode, described as “an ultimate battle against even fiercer jotuns“. A “challenge for those who wish to impress the gods“.
Jotun: Valhalla Edition is available until May 19, 5 p.m., right here.
Head to the year 2032, as you wake up aboard Talos 1, a space station orbiting the Moon. In Preydeveloped by Arkane Studios and published by Besthesda, you end up discovering that you are only an experiment supposed to alter Humanity forever. A “chance” for you: you are the main subject. But beware, this experience will quickly turn sour.
To top it off, a strange threat is ravaging the station. You will therefore have to explore its corners to unlock its secrets and discover the underside of this particular scientific experiment. A sci-fi thriller that will put you to the test. Like any Arkane game, it is possible to browse the sets in different ways.
