|Description||Summons wolves to attack enemy town centers|
Fimbulwinter is a Mythic Age god power available to Tyr. It summons four packs of nine Fimbulwinter Wolves to attack enemy towns on the map for twenty seconds. The wolves will be spawned next to hostile or unclaimed settlements. The player has no control over the wolves, and they die after the god power finishes.

Fimbulwinter Wolves are considered Myth Units and are moderately powerful -they have 180 hit points, compared to regular wolves with 45 - and will easily kill villagers and damage buildings. A single pack of Fimbulwinter Wolves is strong enough to take out an non-upgraded Town Center. However, they can be easily be defended against with combat units as the wolves have low hack armor.
Fimbulwinter is best used while besieging an enemy town to distract the enemy and prevent them from using their own god powers, as no other god powers can be invoked while Fimbulwinter is in effect.
Another way is to use the power when enemy has marched his army to fight, so that Wolves can harass villagers,or even destroy some structures, effectively ruining an enemy's economy. Players can counter this by simply ringing the town bell at the Town Center. This not only protects the worker units from harm but also increases the Town Center's attack, making it easier to kill individual wolves.
- Originally Fimbulwinter was known as "Wild" instead of using a standard godpower cast sound, Fimbulwinter instead used what would become the Great Hunt cast sound, however apart from that, Fimbulwinter and Wild were unchanged, as both spawned packs of wolves. However the snow effects, and Fimbulwinter godpower-theme also originates from the cut Thor Snowstorm godpower.
