Yggdrasil battles fearsome creatures for huge wins in Golden Gorgon

Reading Time: < 1 minute


Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has set off on an ancient Greek quest in its latest hit Golden Gorgon.

The 3×5, 25 payline hit takes a classic gameplay style within a mythological setting as players look to follow in the footsteps of Perseus and find the riches of the fearsome Gorgons.

If the Golden Gaze respins is triggered, winning symbols are turned sticky and a respin of other symbols is triggered. The respins retrigger as long as new winning symbols land on the reels, or the board is completely filled with winning symbols.

Filling columns with winning symbols awards a multiplier. The multiplier is equal to the number of columns filled and per the indicator below the reels. The feature usually occurs over the course of the Golden Gaze respins.

The latest addition to Yggdrasil’s growing portfolio follows successful titles featuring the supplier’s Game Engagement Mechanics (GEM), while the YG Masters library continues to expand with thrilling and unique titles.

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “Golden Gorgon takes straightforward gameplay that appeals to classic slots fans and adds a thrilling respin feature with massive multiplier potential.

“The immersive environment transports players back to the heroes of mythology and we can’t wait to see how players react to this high volatility hit.”

Play’n GO Return to Asgard with Odin: Protector of the Realms

Reading Time: < 1 minute


Play’n GO enter the world of Norse mythology once again with their latest game, Odin: Protector of the Realms. 

The game revolves around Norse God, Odin, who remains to protect Asgard from oncoming attacks while Thor and the other gods defend the Realm. Players must harness Odin’s magical powers to defeat Asgard’s enemies.

Like Honey Rush and Vortex, this epic cascading grid slot game sees a creative use of a hexagonal grid; players are encouraged to harness Odin’s power to increase the size of their win. With 37 symbols to match, this is all about the long game; however, collecting big clusters – thanks to the hexagonal design – to complete the grid is devised to create immediate player satisfaction.

Players can summon three of Odin’s powers: Power, Glory and Wisdom. Power will trigger the charge feature where two symbols are selected and destroyed. Glory can trigger several WILDs to the grid, while Wisdom sees Odin randomly upgrading the central symbol and its matching symbols within the grid.

Known for their attention to detail, Play’n GO encapsulates rich narratives and intricate artwork throughout this series of games for a super-immersive experience. In addition, power symbols ring true to Norse mythology with motifs such as Thor’s Hammer and Frithiof’s Angurvadal.

Fans of Play’n GO’s Viking mythology saga, which includes the popular titles Viking Runecraft and Faces of Freya, are in for a treat with this sequel to Ring of Odin. So, why are Viking-inspired games so popular? Head of Games, Charlotte Miliziano, had this to say:

“Mythology is one of our most popular themes as it casts the way for rich narratives and awe-inspiring artwork that our players just can’t get enough of; lighting, thunder, and magic – what’s not to love?”

Odin: Protector of the Realms is available to play online today.

This feature keeps the excitement going from beginning to end.

Super 12 symbol launches the “Lucky Stars” feature. The symbol is converted into 3 stars which remain fixed and offers 3 free spins to players going back to start the counter again with each additional star. Throughout this feature, players also have the possibility to accumulate wins in the “Minor, Major and Grand” Jackpots which are delivered when it finishes.

The Super 10 symbol activates the exciting “Super 10 Mini-Slot” which delivers very interesting wins as well as instant free spins, multipliers or the “Roulette Frenzy” win.

Dark Fantasy Survival RTS Age of Darkness: Final Stand Trailer and Early Access Announcement

Reading Time: 3 minutes


PlaySide Studios have announced their dark fantasy survival RTS Age of Darkness: Final Stand will be descending into Early Access through Steam in Fall 2021. Age of Darkness: Final Stand presents a modern, darker spin on the survival RTS genre that will challenge new players, and strategy experts alike. The initial story driven trailer is now live giving players a sneak peak into the title and unique gameplay.

Strategic construction, careful resource management, and rapid recruitment are the keys to surviving unrelenting swarms of Nightmares. Robust defences to build, battleworn heroes to enlist, and the tug of war between light and dark all complemented with an original soundtrack by Path of Exile composer Kamil Orman-Janowski.

Survive the Never Ending Evil

Age of Darkness: Final Stand will enter early access with an intense survival game mode that tests your resolve. By day, construct buildings, gather resources, and recruit an army led by unique Heroes. Scout into the deadly fog of war and take the fight to the horrors within. By night, survive swarms of enemies numbering in the thousands. Made to be highly replayable, your army will fall, your settlements will crumble, but you will learn. Rise from the ashes again and again to push back the darkness of ‘The Veil’ and keep the light alive.

Fog of War: Evolved

Light up a rich, complex, procedurally generated map to claim territory back from ‘The Veil’. A dynamic living death fog that conceals enemies, drains life from your troops and turns structures into spawning nests for the Nightmares. Holding the line against this terror is not for the faint of heart. Any units unfortunate enough to be too close to ‘The Veil’ become ‘horrified’, sending them into fits of fear and lowering their effectiveness. Only light cures the darkness, so fight in the light or pay the price.

Death Nights

Brace yourself against huge tidal waves of Nightmares. Leveraging an internally developed technology called ‘SwarmTech’ allows the game to render over 70,000 enemy units on the screen at one time. These enemy legions claw their way up through seething fissures in the earth to reinforce ‘The Veil’. When the Death Night begins, you’ll be weakened by a Malice – a random affliction capable of undermining the best laid plans. If you are fortunate enough to survive until dawn you will be rewarded with a choice of Blessings. Live or die, Death Nights will test your strategic skills to breaking point.

Heroes Vs Horrors

Lead the charge against the horrors of the night with powerful and unique Heroes. Using special abilities gained from levelling up, these Heroes can be key to turning the tide of a desperate battle. But beware, the Nightmares have elite roaming champions of their own that drop precious resources when killed, posing an extreme and ever-present threat to your expansion. Are you the hunter, or the hunted?

Early Access & Community

At PlaySide, we are passionate about working hand in hand with our players to help shape the evolution of Age of Darkness: Final Stand, both during Early Access and into the future. Our strongest desire is to have a title reflective of our gaming passion whilst providing a unique challenge that players from this genre both desire and demand. We look forward to building a long-term community and engaging with our players who share a like-minded vision of making a deeper, darker, challenging combat RTS experience.

“Age of Darkness: Final Stand heralds PlaySide’s expansion into the hardcore PC platform. As a studio created to develop AAA titles, the vision has always been to develop larger, more hardcore titles on PC and Console” said Gerry Sakkas, CEO, PlaySide Studios. “Age of Darkness: Final Stand is a testament to the grit, adaptability and talent of our artists, engineers and game designers. We’re extremely excited and anxious to meet our first wave of players on Steam and to finish building Age of Darkness: Final Stand together with the community!”

“The PC RTS genre is as wild and untamed as it is deep and complex. This is a space where anything goes and the player’s expectations are limitless” said Sean Gabriel, Lead Designer on the title. “Rising to that challenge and bringing PlaySide’s special blend of personality, experience, and talent to bear has been a herculean task of which we’re exceptionally proud. With Age of Darkness: Final Stand we’ve been able to combine our passion for Action RPGs, Roguelikes, and RTS games into something wholly our own – and we’re only just getting started.”
