FEATURES

  • The Next Generation of Co-op RTS – DwarfHeim innovates the RTS genre with asymmetric co-op, a thrilling team game-play that will appeal to fans of multiplayer games everywhere.
  • Choose Your Class – Builder, Miner Or Warrior! Devise your strategies and choose which units, buildings and technology best meets the needs of you and your team.

Co-op RTS
DwarfHeim’s main Co-op mode is Conquest, a competitive multiplayer mode in which you and two other players must cooperate to tear through the enemy team’s defenses and destroy their Town Hall. Develop your settlement from a single building to a thriving stronghold by gathering resources, increasing your population and keeping your dwarven brothers happy by brewing potent and hearty ales.

Teamwork is Key
DwarfHeim’s asymmetric co-op style means players stay within their chosen class for the duration of a game. All players and classes share the common goal of growing their Dwarven Clan. They also share their resources: Warriors, Builders and Miners must work together, and agree what’s best for the group. DwarfHeim’s unique focus on team game-play encourages players to work together; A Builder may need stone for walls but the Miner needs wood to refine the stone and build underground structures. Communication is key and sacrifice may be required.
