New Age of Empires Online Civilization: the Norse

A new civilization is coming to Age of Empires Online, and it’s the Norse, heralding from the frozen lands of Northern Europe.

The Norse are a strongly offensive civilization. Their infantry possess a unique construction ability that makes controlling the map and overwhelming the enemy that much easier, because it allows the Norse to launch sustained attacks from anywhere on the map. The Norse also excel at intelligence gathering, strangely enough. They can build Outposts with their Infantry, start with two Scouts, and wield powerful Seers that can summon Ravens to temporarily fly around the map and scout the enemy’s base.

Norse key units:

  • Throwing Axeman
  • Berserker
  • War Dog
  • Seer
  • Chief
  • Raider

Norse unique structures:

  • Longhouse
  • Outpost
