Viking RTS Northgard adds giant-summoning Relics and more in big free update

Developer Shiro Games’ entertaining Viking-themed real-time strategy, Northgard, has just received a major new content update – introducing, among other things, powerful Relics that can grant serious benefits to your ever-beleaguered clans.
