'DwarfHeim' Available Through Steam Early Access - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 22, 2020 @ 6:00 a.m. PDT

DwarfHeim is a cooperative and competitive real-time strategy and city builder game.

DwarfHeim is a Strategy game where 1-3 players, manage and defend a Dwarven city against the constant threats of feral trolls and rivaling dwarven clans (another team of 1-4 players) in a search for the ancient throne of DwarfHeim. The game is the first RTS to feature a multiplayer co-op where you and your team must work together using your different classes and abilities to gather resources, grow and defend your dwarven city.

Survive the dangers of Agartha, mine its resources and expand your mighty city into the wilderness. By creating and enhancing different tactics and adapting to your opponents’ strategies in DwarfHeim, you must develop your settlement from a single building to a thriving stronghold. Vanquish your enemies, train your army, gather resources, increase your population and keep your dwarves healthy and strong by brewing potent ales so that they will continue to fight the good fight.

DwarfHeim's online co-op is best when played with friends, which is why, if you own the game, we want you to be able to invite your friends to try it out with you. This way you can experience the multiplayer as it's meant to be played.


Publisher Merge Games and developer Pineleaf Studio announced that DwarfHeim is now available through Steam Early Access for £19.99, €/$24.99.

“The response to our first trailer for DwarfHeim  was incredible - from the media, gamers adding us to their wish lists and content creators lining up to stream the game.” commented Hans-Andreas Kleven, CEO and Game Director at Pineleaf Studio “The team has been counting down to the early access launch so we can finally pass our game into the hands of RTS fans everywhere - we really think DwarfHeim is something special and we can’t wait to share this journey with our community”

DwarfHeim Early Access Content:

  • Conquest — The main co-op multiplayer mode of DwarfHeim. Choose a class, join up with 2 other players and work together to tear through the enemy team’s defenses to destroy their Town Hall.
  • Skirmish — Skirmish is available in Single-Player and Online Co-op. Put your strategies to the test in this challenging mode and pit your Dwarves against an AI-controlled rival clan in a series of maps each more challenging than the last.
  • Survival —  A gruelling and fast-paced challenge mode. All classes, buildings, units and abilities are immediately unlocked. Challenge yourself and try to outlive the onslaught of troll waves that come your way in the Survival mode. Survival mode will be available in Single-Player and Online Co-op.
  • Sandbox — A more relaxed game mode for the player who likes to take their time. All units and buildings are immediately unlocked. Build your own experience, and create your perfect settlement in this creative game mode. Sandbox is also available in both Single-Player and Online Co-op.
  • There’s plenty more that will release throughout Early Access. Stay tuned for updates on the DwarfHeim roadmap.

DwarfHeim releases alongside the optional Supporter Pass DLC pack which includes a host of different skins for weapons, units, Thane Hero characters and buildings.

“We at Pineleaf have been humbled by the level of support DwarfHeim has received from our community” added Kleven, on the Supporter Pass DLC. “We’ve had people asking how they can further support us and DwarfHeim. So instead of asking for donations we created the Supporter Pass - a small token of gratitude for people’s generosity, we created in-game items for your units and buildings so other people can see you are a member of a very elite club.”

Note - all items in the Supporter Pass are purely cosmetic and do not affect gameplay.
