What is Tribes of Midgard?
Tribes of Midgard shares very obvious similarities to Valheim: It has a viking theme, and it's a survival game. That's it. Also, that's basically all that Valheim is, so that comparison is fair. More than that though, Tribes of Midgard features a Saga mode that is more story-driven than Valheim in addition to its survival mode. Either mode can be you solo or with up to ten friends as a PvE experience, with the world scaling to however many people you're with in any given session.
Tribes of Midgard: Story & Gameplay
If you're playing in Saga mode, you will get a story, which will see you protecting the Seeds of the World Tree against the coming Ragnarök. If you watched the Thor movie, you should be familiar enough. To do all this protecting, you collect resources and build up the image this tree is housed in. The difference between Saga mode and survival is that the former ends once the story is over, whereas survival has the familiar endless loop.
Gameplay wise, Tribes of Midgard takes the isometric approach and has you fighting a lot: You'll be fighting off giants, and you'll be doing so with abilities that do damage or heal or buff – all things action-RPG or RTS players will be familiar with. Thus, Tribes of Midgard is much more action-oriented than the more mellow Valheim.
