'DwarfHeim' Reveals Steam Early Access Plans

by Rainier on July 30, 2020 @ 8:00 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.

Merge Games along with Norway based developer Pineleaf Studio are releasing DwarfHeim into Steam Early Access this Fall.

This move comes as part of a commitment to players to continue adding new content and quality of life improvements to DwarfHeim throughout its Early Access, making it a strong and robust RTS via direct feedback from the community. All of the content originally planned for this year’s launch is included in the Early Access.

We want to make sure DwarfHeim is the best co-op RTS experience out there,” says Pineleaf CEO, Hans-Andreas Kleven states. “Our Early Access Launch this fall will allow us to keep developing the game together with our community, seeing what features engage players the most and learning what can be done to make DwarfHeim more fun.”

DwarfHeim wouldn’t be nearly as good without all the hours and feedback given to us by our community,” he adds. “With our Early Access Launch, we plan to keep delivering new features and content until we, together with our community, are content that DwarfHeim is finished.”

Players who purchase DwarfHeim in Early Access can look forward to:

  • Single-Player and Online Co-op
    • Survival — A gruelling and fast-paced challenge mode. All classes, buildings, units and abilities are immediately unlocked. Test your strategies and strength with the various difficulty settings. Challenge yourself and try to outlive the onslaught of troll waves that come your way in the Survival mode.
