Medieval kingdom sim Norland shifts to July as it hits major wishlist milestone

May 2, 2024 – Hooded Horse today announces that its medieval kingdom sim Norland will now release on July 18, 2024 so that developer Long Jaunt can include some extra features, and bask in the glory of hitting 500,000 wishlists for a bit longer.

New features coming to Norland as a result of the extra development time include:

  • Enhanced World Map trading, which can only be done by negotiating contracts with neighboring rulers.
  • Province ecology, where factors such as soil erosion, limited raw materials, and market saturation will force players to look beyond their immediate borders to ensure the continued prosperity of the kingdom.
  • New local map mechanics such as patrolling, enhanced character reactions, and even market speculation.
  • Aging – no longer will the ruling family be immortal.
  • Prophecies and disasters for the mid-game.
  • A whole host of other quality-of-life improvements and features, which can be read about in this Steam post.

Norland has successfully captured the imagination of players since its announcement in 2022, gaining over 50,000 wishlists alone during its Next Fest run back in June 2023. It currently has over 500,000 wishlists, placing it within the top 50 most wishlisted games on Steam.

The game will be localized from English into German, French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Turkish, Ukrainian, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.

Norland releases on PC via Steam Early Access on July 18, 2024.
