Swedish casino game developer Net Ent has announced that they've struck a licensing deal with A+E Networks and will develop a video slot based on the hit television series 'Vikings' as a result.
The game will be released toward the end of this year, but no details on the game itself were made available to the press. The slot will be based on the hit television series, which follows a family of VIkings as they traverse northern Europe. The series debuted in 2013 and has been wildly popular ever since. The series was debuted for the History Channel in the U.S., but has been distributed to other channels throughout the world.
Speaking about the agreement Net Ent Chief Product Officer Henrik Fagerlund said, "To be able to provide our players with a different genre of branded game, showcases the hard work we're putting in behind the scenes to create such high-quality content and further expand our portfolio. Vikings has quickly become a TV favourite since the first season in 2013 and appeals to a vast audience worldwide. It's a classic and historical theme packed with action and we're sure the players will be looking forward to the launch later this year."
"Vikings," which airs on HISTORY® in the US, is the critically acclaimed series from creator and Executive Producer Michael Hirst (Academy Award® winning film Elizabeth and the Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominated series "The Tudors") and is a family saga that tells the remarkable tales of the lives and epic adventures of the raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages."
