The basic gameplay of Viking Rise is relatively simple but interesting as players are asked to build a village, train troops, and conquer different areas on the map. Also, as the game is played in real-time players can still play different game modes such as PvP, guild wars, and a lot more.

Set up your village!

First of all, you need to build up your village, and to do that, you need to get enough resources to build the required buildings.

With a simple click on a wood pile, tree, or food, a worker will automatically be assigned and get you the resources needed.

After getting enough resources, you will need to go to the buildings tab and start building the available ones so that you can get a place for your villagers, training camps, healing buildings, and a lot more.

Starting with the Chief’s Hall, which will be your headquarters, then all the buildings that you will need along your journey, such as clan camp so your villagers can get a place to live, and so on.

Keep in mind that every time you level up the Chief’s Hall, you will get access to new buildings and be able to upgrade your existing buildings.

Recruit Villagers and Workers

Once you are set, you will need to recruit more workers and villagers so that you can assign them to different tasks.

Villagers and workers are both important resources, but they have different functions. You should assign villagers to all the tasks but not the construction one, as the workers are faster and more efficient in terms of construction.

That’s why the workers would cost you resources to recruit, while the villagers are free to recruit.

Build New Structures

After recruiting the workers, now you can use them to construct powerful buildings for you, choosing from 3 categories of buildings: economy, which focuses on the village itself and resources; military, which focuses on your offensive and defensive aspects; and decoration, which doesn’t affect your gameplay but will surely make your village look awesome!

Train Troops

Research technologies
