Witch Saga Update Adds New Biome, Farming System, And More


The Witch Saga update introduces a new Nilfheim biome, farming system, weapons, armor, meals, and saga quest with plentiful rewards.

Tribes of Midgard received a major contet update on January 17th, known as the Witch Saga update. The new patch, which is now live, includes a new biome Niflheim, Ancient Hel, Saga Quest, a new farming system, plus new weapons, creatures, and armor. This massive update also features new runes, cross-network support between PC and Xbox consoles, and a discoverable in-game challenge for all survival worlds.

The fable Norse Realm of the dead, Niflheim, has been added to the game along with Helthings, Draugr, Jormungandr, and Squirrel Critter creatures. Players will gain access to crafting materials to forge new recipes that can be used against foes lurking around the coldest realm yet. A new Ancient, named Hel, will make its appearance in Helheim, where players will stop the ruler of the dead with new pieces of equipment. The Witch Saga update also adds a new Saga Quest, which can be found in Niflheim through an Undergate portal.

Another notable inclusion of the Witch Saga update is the farming system, which allows players to farm ingredients of their choosing by digging holes with a shovel tool, planting essences, and waiting for the crop to grow. Essences can be earned from Personal Quests across Midgard.

Tribes of Midgard: Witch Saga Update Patch Notes For Today, January 18th


New Biome: Niflheim

  • The fabled Norse Realm of the dead has been added as a whole new biome for you to explore!
  • Brave the depths of the coldest Realm yet! Face off against powerful Helthings and Draugr while gaining access to unique crafting Materials to forge powerful new recipes.
  • Take in the sights, enjoy the music, greet the squirrels, and raid the ancient stone mausoleums for loot! Just be careful not to overstay your welcome – it’s a long way from home.

New Ancient: Hel

  • Where there is Helheim, there is Hel. The notorious ruler of the dead has made her calculated appearance, and surely she’s up to no good.
  • Complete the Saga Quest to confront Hel and put an end to her schemes, but make sure you are prepared and well-equipped, for Hel fights unlike any Ancient you’ve faced so far – and don’t forget to crank up the music for the epic showdown like a proper Viking!

New Saga Quest: Witch

  • Hel has taken the fallen god Baldr prisoner for her dark plans, and it is up to the Einherjar to brave the depths of Niflheim itself to get him back!
  • Travel to Niflheim by finding an Undergate portal to reach the land of frost and shadow, but tread carefully, for Niflheim is our coldest and most dangerous Realm yet! Be wary not to venture into Niflheim before you are ready.

Farming System: Shovels And Essences

  • The Witch Saga debuts the ability for players to farm Ingredients of their choosing by digging holes with the new Shovel tool, planting Essences, then waiting for the crop to grow.
  • The new Shovel tool is accessed from your Build menu and allows you to dig holes just about anywhere!
  • Essences are a unique Material that can be looted across Midgard or earned from Personal Quests and act as seeds – magical seeds! Simply plant an Essence you’ve found in a hole you’ve dug, then watch as the timer counts down until your crop is ready to harvest.

Xbox And PC Cross-Network Play

  • The Witch Saga also debuts the ability for Tribes of Midgard players to connect together online between Steam, Epic Games Store, and Xbox Live!
  • Players can search for players across other platforms from the Cross-Network Search tab of the Invite menu. You can also review recently met players, add Friends, and review pending Friend Requests.

  • Players have an icon to represent their platform located next to their player name in the lobby and in-game player lists.


  • Learning from the Jötnar, defeated Ancients will now respawn after a while, coming back stronger each time.
  • Starter Kits are now no longer exclusive to Saga Mode. Mix and match to create unique play styles as you start up your new Survival World!

  • Players can find Saplings, nascent Seeds of Yggdrasil, as they explore Midgard.
  • Planted Essences around a Sapling will grow at an increased rate.
  • However, just like the Seed of Yggdrasil in the Village, the magic of these trees is sure to bring danger.
  • You can trigger an invasion event at a Sapling, in which hordes of enemies will attempt to destroy it. Build defenses and fight well! If the Sapling survives the enemy wave, you’ll earn rewards and you even be able to upgrade the Sapling itself.
  • Upgraded Saplings will increase the rate at which your Essences grow.
  • There is one Sapling per Biome, and each will come under attack by different types of enemies – find and defend them all!
