Tribes of Midgard review

System: Switch
Release Date: August 16, 2022
Developer: Norsfell
Publisher: Gearbox Publishing

At a little over a year from its initial launch, Tribes of Midgard made its way to Switch recently with more bells and whistles to show for it. Originally, the game boasted only its session-based Saga mode with ten players taking on a series of tasks to survive together and make it through a scenario, with an offline mode touting the same objectives. With Season 3: Inferno Saga, updates were made to both Saga and the newer Survival mode. We’ll be diving into both modes and taking a look at what they look like on Switch.
