Co-Op RTS DwarfHeim Announced


RTS, strategy, and city-building enthusiasts the world over are in for a treat – Pineleaf Studio and Merge Games are teaming up to create the Co-Op RTS DwarfHeim.

With support for anywhere from one to four players, DwarfHeim tasks players with building, managing and defending a Dwarven city against feral trolls and rivaling dwarven clans (made up of another team of players). To build the perfect team, players will be able to choose between the Miner, Builder, Warrior, and Diplomat classes.

The title specializes in its one-of-a-kind co-op multiplayer gameplay, which has you and your team working together and using different abilities and classes to expand, defend your city, and gather resources. Ranked Matchmaking is available, and a Friend-Pass system will allow others to play on a free downloadable client of the game, even if they haven’t purchased the game.

According to Pineleaf CEO Hans-Andreas Kleven:

So at Pineleaf, we wanted to create a f*cking REAL co-operational multiplayer RTS. An RTS that you can play with your friends, and that is DwarfHeim.”[/testimonials]
