DwarfHeim Has Left Early Access

Publisher Merge Games and developer Pineleaf Studio have announced DwarfHeim has left early access, hitting its full release.

Now that DwarfHeim has left early access, the game’s big 1.0 update is now available, adding a number of fixes, tweaks, new features, tools, and more. The game originally entered early access nearly a year ago, in October 2020.

What’s more – the game is 30% off its regular price until October 4 to celebrate the new release. There’s also a free “friend pass” version that’ll let you play survival mode with any Steam friends  that already own the game.

The big 1.0 update for DwarfHeim also adds the new Dwarfish Thanes feature, each coming with their own unique bonuses and skill sets. Survival Mode was also overhauled entirely, bringing new features like the Blood Moon with new enemy types, as well as new UI, and a new lobby system.

Here’s a new trailer:

DwarfHeim is the next generation of real-time strategy games and features exciting asymmetric, co-op game modes that will appeal to multiplayer fans everywhere. Player roles are critical to the success of your clan, choosing the right class can mean the difference between a glorious victory and a crushing defeat.

DwarfHeim can also be enjoyed in single-player modes for the gamer’s that prefer the solo play-style.
