Two new Seasonal Units are coming to Conqueror’s Blade: Helheim starting June 9. You’ve already met the Huskarls, and the second and final of these ferocious fighters is a band of lethal mercenaries: Varangian Guards (5-Star).

The Viking Age was home to many legendary warriors, but none were as elite in status as the Varangian Guard. The Scandinavian company possessed great military skill, and due to this, amassed immense wealth. Recruited by the Byzantine Empire on the strength of their reputations, these particular Vikings lived to serve, and the riches didn’t hurt. One of these illustrious figures was Harald Hardrada, who became King of Norway after serving as a Varangian to fund his bid for the crown. 

Varangian Guards in Conqueror’s Blade are the defenders of the royal family of the Kingdom of Empyros, and wield swords, shields, and axes to great effect. Handsomely compensated for their efforts, they deterred any threat as they fought their way through the North.

Varangian Guards are equipped with a fierce rage mechanic. They build up their fury, then unleash a terrifying attack upon any foe who dares to cross their path.

Unlock Varangian Guards via new Unit Challenges when they launch on July 11!
