A tactical RPG with challenging play & pause gameplay for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Release summer 2016.
The protagonist in the game is the dwarf Tungdil who grew up around humans. His
knowledge about dwarves is limited to what he read in books. His epic journey through
"Girdlegard" forms the story of the game.
Over time Tungdil gathers a group of up to 12 companions around him. Each of them has
their own backstory and unique skills in combat that you can level up individually. Before
each battle you choose which three heroes should accompany Tungdil in the fight.
In the battles your few heroes will often fight against hundreds of enemies simultaneously.
“Helm’s Deep” sends its regards!
The dwarves' enemies have a flocking behavior and react physically correct: If a dwarf lands a
mighty blow with a heavy war hammer, struck orcs are thrown back, and some of them
might even be pushed into an abyss!
Only through tactical use of the environment, crowd-control, smart use of your heroes' skills,
and effective combos will you be able to survive against the overwhelming odds.
On the huge world map you can travel to around 300 waypoints. During these travels
different random events can be triggered, for example side quests, dialogs with NPCs, or
dialogs between party members.
There will also be enemy groups moving around the world map. It will be up to the player
whether he wants to avoid orc armies or confront them as soon as possible. Taking out
enemy armies early means they won't do as much harm and, for example, you might be
thanked by villagers for saving their village from imminent destruction. Of course, an early
confrontation also means a more difficult fight…
"The Dwarves" is a RPG based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Markus Heitz.
The main quest of the game follows the story of the first novel, but also offers numerous
new quests and characters.
Bestselling author Markus Heitz is directly involved in the project as a consultant and
contributed some quests and a brand new character.
