Upcoming RTS DwarfHeim has gotten itself an Early Access release date along with a brand new demo for you to get stuck into.
Currently in development from Pineleaf Studio, DwarfHeim promises to shake up the beloved Real Time Strategy genre as you and your friends work to grow Dwarven Clans.
“DwarfHeim is the next generation of real-time strategy games,” explains a press release. “Featuring a thrilling asymmetric co-op game style that will appeal to fans of multiplayer games everywhere. Player roles are critical to the success of your clan, choosing the right class can be the difference between victory and defeat.”
The game is set to enter Early Access with four playable modes:
- 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 — Recently announced and teased in the latest trailer, 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.
