Paradox Entertainment has announced that its upcoming role-playing game Valhalla Chronicles has just entered beta testing. The game is in joint development at Paradox Entertainment and Oblivion Entertainment, and it will let players assume the role of one of four different heroes in a variety of adventures. The game is set in a fantasy world based on Viking history around the years 800-1000, and it features a number of gods drawn from Viking mythology, including Thor, Odin, and Loke.
In the game, players begin their journey as a leader of a small village in Midgard, and they must build their wealth and power through trade and warfare.
