Play Beowulf and experience the life of an epic hero, a slayer and a king, torn between the nobility and brutality within him. As Beowulf, you are a legendary Norse warrior with the strength of 30 men. Arrogant, self-serving, and lustful for gold and glory, you journey to Denmark to destroy a bloodthirsty beast wreaking havoc on a frigid land. But evil persists, and you succumb to its lure of even greater fame, quietly maneuvering to claim the Danish throne. As King, you must face the consequences of ambition, even as war descends on the realm. Lead your thanes into battle, slay the Titans of a dying age, and crush the enemies that threaten to annihilate both your kingdom and your people. Only then, when you look Destiny in the eye, will you know what kind of hero you truly are? Carnal upgrades include less daze after use and prolonged use of carnal fury. Combos, parries, and skills increase as you progress. Grab allows you to hold on to walls or climb, as well as fight in hand-to-hand combat with enemies and giant monsters. Use legacy experience points to gain thanes, replace weapons, and upgrade your carnal abilities. Powered by the next evolution of the award-winning YETI technology, the mystical world of Beowulf comes to life in stunning fashion. ESRB Rated M for Mature


Beowulf: The Game is a hack-and-slash game based on Robert Zemeckis' animated movie adaptation of the poem Beowulf. Gameplay combines elements from the Tomb Raider and God of War series.

As Beowulf, the player fights his way through a number of episodes commanding his band of merry Thanes via a small selection of commands. Beowulf can chant with his band to boost the moral and max out damage out, triggered through a rhythm button mashing mini-game. There are more mini-games similar to the chanting throughout the game. Some appear right in the middle of combat while trying to grapple a large monster similar to sequences in God of War.

Beowulf can lift enemies with brute strength and hurl them in any direction, even at other enemies. He can also alternate weapons by picking up new ones, lying discarded on the ground, or from racks of weapons that may be found in many places. Also in combat Beowulf can enter Carnal Mode that increases his strength but demoralizes Thanes, so players won't be able to use it frequently or the entire kingdom will be sad and dismal. In certain areas the player needs to find a path to continue, sometimes by climbing walls and grabbing small ledges. All characters are voiced by the original actors who starred in the film.
