EGTV: Exclusive Viking teaser

Inspect a Norse.

A few libations poured here, a quick virgin sacrifice there, and good old SEGA has sent down the first ever teaser trailer for its gods-bothering rampage, Viking: Battle For Asgard.

Mixing the epic battles of Total War with the mythological gore of God of War, Vikings has been forged by the skilled hands of Creative Assembly – they of the aforementioned Total War fame.

Eschewing God of War's Mediterranean classicism for the equally fertile northern European Norse legends, Vikings promises to retain the brutal violence of Sony's spectacular brawler, while adding scale and tactical depth to the battlefield.

Following the wartorn capers of viking warlord Skarin, a comprehensive preview of the title was penned by our own bloodthirsty gaming warrior Tom Bramwell earlier in the summer, so head there for the full lowdown. But not before you've cast your eyes over the first atmospheric teaser, now showing on Eurogamer TV.

Viking: Battle For Asgard is currently scheduled for an early 2008 release on PS3 and Xbox 360.
