Not only is Friday a day to celebrate the oncoming weekend, get a takeaway and go out for a couple of bevvies with your friends and family, for us here at GameSpew it’s time for #FreeGameFriday. That’s right Spewers; it’s the best day of the week.

This week’s title is one that can involve monetary transactions if you want to, but can also be played entirely for free. Things just take a little longer, that’s all. It’s a game that allows you to become a fearsome Viking leader – a Jarl – assembling a mighty army of warriors before taking the fight to the opposition to show just how fearsome you are. It’s a game called Vikings: War of Clans.

Available on PC, as well as Android and iOS, Vikings: War of Clans isn’t just all about muscular Vikings taking swipes at each other though. No. In order to prove your superiority you need to gather resources, develop your town, train your troops, and most important of all, find like-minded players join your cause, with each clan allowed up to 100 members. That’s right, Vikings: War of Clans is an MMO strategy game, testing your ability to make shrewd military decisions just as much your warriors’ ability to fight.

Whether you choose to be a clan leader or a simple warrior supporting your leaders cause is up to you, but either way, you’ll want to arrange marches to secure valuable resources and engage in raids on other player’s towns. You may even seek to forge alliances with other clans to give yourself some respite. Whatever you do, each and every victory will bring rewards and glory, spurring you on to your main goal of capturing the Place of Power, a unique location placed at the centre of each kingdom.

With quests and daily tasks to complete, there’s always something to do in Vikings: War of Clans, making it great for when you need to fill in a bit of downtime during your day. It’s even got Hero skills and customisation options, allowing you to tweak your bloodthirsty avatar to make them more unique. With so much to offer and a helpful tutorial getting you quickly up to speed when you first start to play, just try not to get too addicted to it, okay?

You can play Vikings: War of Clans on PC via your browser on the Vikings War of Clans official site. Alternatively, you can play it via Facebook, or download it on your Android or Apple device via their respective app stores.
