DwarfHeim Gameplay

As the name suggests, DwarfHeim is dedicated to dwarves. In this game, players have to construct the buildings, manage the resources and protect the city from the constant threat of wild trolls and rival clans.

According to the developers, DwarfHeim is the first real-time strategy that uses shared multiplayer: players must work together using different classes and abilities. It resembles a conventional class system from RPG, but DH uses it to make players gather resources, protect and expand the city effectively.

The main mode of the game called Conquest is similar to MOBA mechanics: three players together must destroy the enemy team's town hall. Each participant has a unique role from the classes: builder, diplomat, miner and warrior; all of them have a unique skill set and mission in the game.

The builder is support, defence and healer at the same time: this player treats units by building defences and buildings, creates farms and produces resources. The miner specializes in gathering resources, crafting equipment and traps, as well as the undermining of defensive structures and enemy buildings. A diplomat is an assassin and a merchant who sabotages the work of enemy buildings and equipment, and trades in wealth. The warrior commands an army and defends the city, as well as arming the military units with legendary weapons.

The single-player mode is a sandbox where you can explore the features and capabilities of the game, and survival mode is available in multiplayer. DwarfHeim will offer 18 unique combat units with 72 abilities, 30 different resources and 34 structures.
