Five new Viking: Battle of Asgard screens

Blood spills in new shots from The Creative Assembly's "visceral wave of slaughter"

The last time we saw Viking: Battle of Asgard was in a blood-filled trailer, and there's now further violence to be had in five new screenshots.

In development for Xbox 360 and PS3, Battle of Asgard's being whipped into shape by the chaps at The Creative Assembly, which is best known for its acclaimed Total War strategy titles on PC.

The game chucks you into the boots of Skarin and finds you engaging in a fierce struggle within the realm of the Norse Gods, and we've been promised it'll deliver visceral waves of slaughter.
