The real-life version of the Orlog dice game from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla exceeds its Kickstarter goal, bringing it closer to a full version.
The real version of PureArts Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla’s Orlog dice have just exceeded their initial goal on Kickstarter. The dice-based mini-game is just one of many side activities players can enjoy in Ubisoft’s latest story-based action-adventure title, which places them in the role of a leader of a Viking clan as they struggle to build a new home in the British Isles in the years 872 to 878 AD.
Orlog pits two players against each other in a battle to drain their opponents’ health points using strategic dice rolls, and players can call on special divine favors to tip the scales. Although the game itself is not necessarily based on an actual game from the Middle Ages, it was discovered that dice and other games of chance did indeed play an important role in society as early as the Iron Age. Nowadays, Ubisoft has teamed up with PureArts (who have created official minifigures and other merchandise for games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Resident Evil 2) to create a real version of Orlog soon after Assassin’s Creed Valhalla released last November.
Now PureArt’s take on Orlog is closer than ever to being released, as the company has announced that it has exceeded its original target. Kickstarter goal of $ 60,239 earlier today on the Orlog project page. Among the many special bonuses available to those who donate, there is a Replica Viking Horn, Linen Cloth Orlog Playmat, Real Stone Health Counters, Metal Game Pieces, Bag in linen fabric for all play pieces, and shines in the -Dark Orlog Dice – which PureArts Marketing Director Dan Richard showed in more detail while thanking fans for their support. Watch a video of him explaining the Orlog rules, as played in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, in the YouTube clip below:
Video games are a natural choice for tabletop board games, as evidenced by successes like Bloodborne: the card game and Fallout: the board game. Newer Kickstarter project added The witcher to the list of popular gaming franchises that have received the card and dice treatment, such as Go On Board The Witcher: Old World The tabletop role-playing game surpassed its fundraising goal last month.
Side mini-games like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Orlog and The Witcher 3 Gwents are fun distractions on their own, and they translate into physical board games quite easily. We do not yet know when PureArts Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla The Orlog game will be released, but it might not be much longer given the success rate of its Kickstarter.
