Tribes Of Midgard Devs Help Plant 40,000 Trees To Celebrate Player Milestones

  • Developer Norsfell and publisher Gearbox Publishing have linked up with a nonprofit to plant 40,000 trees in celebration of Tribes of Midgard's success, which has been downloaded over 250,000 times since its launch.

    In a press release announcing the news, the duo said that in the three days after the action-RPG dropped on July 27, Tribes of Midgard became the ninth-most-watched game on Twitch with 100,000 concurrent viewers. Another milestone that has been surpassed: Players have defeated over 40,000 Jötnar, groups of Jötun (or giants), that roam the game's world.

The three will plant some 40,000 trees, though when and where they will be planted remains undisclosed.Continue Reading at GameSpot
