Rising Star Games to Publish Physical Boxed Edition of Zoink Games’ Zombie Vikings on PS4 System This Fall

Holy möther fafnir! These hacking dead are going BERSERK!
August 10, 2015 – The promised land of Valhalla awaits you my brothers and sisters! Rising Star Games are happy to announce that today they have formed a partnership with acclaimed Swedish developer, Zoink Games. The partnership will see the release of Zombie Vikings: Ragnarök Editiön, a physical boxed version of the comedy-filled hack n' slash adventure game, on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system replete with exclusive gaming content.



From the creators of last years' indie hit Stick It to The Man! comes Zombie Vikings, a new co-op 4 player brawler with a dead funny adventure written by comedic genius and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal creator Zach Weinersmith.

Plunging you deep into the Nordic cosmos, the eye-popping adventure begins when the antics of the mischievous Norse gods cause a heap of trouble. Loki snatches Odin's last magic eye right out of his eye-socket and hastily runs away with his prize. With Thor and the other gods too busy partying to notice, blind-as-a-bat Odin is forced to make a desperate move: raising four of the most fearsome Zombie Vikings out of Norse soil – Gunborg, Seagurd, Hedgy and Caw-kaa – and tasking the putrid posse with a mission to retrieve the magic eye and make peace with their rotten pasts.

In Zombie Vikings players will hack through the most epic of worlds: the boiling gingerbread swamps of Molgaga, take a cruise through the intestines of the Midgaard Serpent, fight giant troll poultry and find out how Söccer was really invented. It’s going to be a gloriously grotesque adventure!

“When we first laid our eyes on Zombie Vikings it was immediately apparent that the development team at Zoink are an incredibly creative bunch, with talent bursting at the seams,” said Phil Robinson, Vice President of Rising Star Games Inc. “Zombie Vikings: Ragnarök Editiön is not only going to split sides with its insane humor, hack n’ slash style gameplay, but also offers loads of additional content that is exclusive to the physical boxed release.”

"There is something really special about a boxed version of your game, a real product you can actually hold in your hands," said Klaus Lyngeled, CEO of Zoink Games. "Rising Star has a ton of experience and we are excited to partner with them to get our little gem out in the shops and into the hands of our players."
