Paradox Development Studio, the guys behind classics like Europa Universalis and Crusader Kings, have revealed that they’re working on a bold new RPG set in the mythical and brutal Norse mythology.

Titled simply Runemaster, the game is an open world RPG in which you explore through procedural maps and quests. Not much else was revealed other than those small bits of information, and the set of screenshots accompanied by the teaser trailer.

You can view the teaser trailer below:

Runemaster is set for a release on unannounced platforms sometime “next winter,” as if any other season would be appropriate for its release.
