Merge Games and developer Pineleaf Studio have announced that their co-op RTS game, DwarfHeim, will release in Early Access on 22nd October. A new trailer has been released (see below) during this year’s PAX/EGX Online event revealing the four different game modes available to players from the day of release.
DwarfHeim is an RTS that puts players in charge of a group of dwarves with the aim of becoming a powerful dwarf clan and surviving the onslaught of rival clans, trolls and other creatures that lurk in shadows. Players can either take on the dangers on their own or join two other friends in online co-op and work together by selecting from different classes, including Builder, Miner and Warrior.
When this game releases on Early Access there will be the following content available:
- Sandbox Mode – A relaxed game mode where all buildings and units are automatically unlocked allowing players to build up their clan to create the perfect stronghold. This game mode can be played single player or in online co-op.
- Survival Mode – A fast paced challenge mode that will have players (either solo or in online co-op) taking on hordes of angry trolls. All buildings and units will be unlocked from the start to give an even chance of surviving.
- Skirmish Mode – Take on an AI controlled rival dwarf clan to see which one comes out on top. This mode can be played in single player or online co-op.
- Conquest – The main multiplayer game mode where players work together to tear down the enemies defences and destroy their town hall.
DwarfHeim will release in Early Access on 22nd October. The game’s beta is currently running until 20th September, visit the DwarfHeim Discord server to find out how to take part.
