Playing as the cybernetic god, Baldur, you are charged with defending against an onslaught of machines aimed towards wiping out mankind. The Norse Gods that exist in this game are actually cybernetically enhanced humans, who use cybernetic implants to become more like machines. Ironically, they're trying to stop machines who are harvesting human blood and limbs to become more human. The game is obviously inspired by Norse mythology, having members of the Aesir featured in the game. Some of the Aesir include: Thor, Odin, Loki, Mimir, Freyja, and Heimdall. Other then the vague plot they've given us, Silicon Knights has not given out much information due to the games epic story driven gameplay.
