Bordeaux, Friday, March 6, 2017 - Critically acclaimed independent game developer Shiro Games announced today that the studio is participating as an exhibitor at PAX East from Friday March 10 to Sunday March 12, 2017 to showcase its recent Steam Early Access release of Northgard. Fans and journalists are encouraged to stop by the booth to take a look at the new strategy game from the makers of Evoland series. Shiro Games is also presenting attendees with new content, which includes a new clan known as the Raven clan, that isn’t currently available for Early Access owners.

The Clan of the Raven is composed of great explorers and merchants, with a mighty fleet allowing them to be among the first Northgard pioneers. They can become strong trade partners despite their constant scheming. Brash and swift, they will often be found roaming where you least expect them.

Starting Bonuses:

-          Start with the Trading Lore

-          The Seafarer's Hall replaces the Harbor, allowing faster scouting

Fame Bonuses:

-          Hired Help: The Raven can send mercenaries from the Seafarer's Hall to attack                  faraway territories

-          Everything has a price: Colonization costs can be paid with Kröwns

“We’re thrilled to participate as an exhibitor at PAX East this year to present our latest project Northgard to fans and press. We’ve been working hard to get to this point to share our latest progressions with attendees and look forward to hearing their feedback. Engaging in communication with our community of fans is important to us and their thoughts about our game could potentially lead to important changes within Northgard.” says Sebastien Vidal, Shiro Games, co-founder.

We invite press to come play the game’s new content and schedule interviews with Sebastien Vidal and Nicolas Cannasse, the developers and co-founders of Shiro Games. Northgard will be showcased at booth #42 inside the Indie Megabooth area.
