source site The game for everyone that needs more beer, beards and battle in their lives. The Dwarves is a tactical RPG with an innovative combat system, based on the bestselling fantasy novel of the same name. After a few delays following the release announcement The Dwarves finally has a release date of December 1st,
The revolutionary Crowd-Combat System forms the core of The Dwarves, meaning that enemies exhibit a flocking behavior and are influenced by physics. If a dwarf lands a mighty blow with a heavy war hammer, the impacted orcs are thrown back, colliding with their allies and some of them might even be pushed into an abyss! It’s only through tactical use of the environment and all of the heroes skills that players will be able to survive against the hordes outnumbering them by 100 to 1.
The main character in the game is the dwarf Tungdil, who grew up among humans, and over the course of the story he gathers a group of up to 12 companions around him; each of whom have a unique backstory and individual battle skills. Before each battle you assemble a group of up to four heroes, who then fight against hundreds of enemies simultaneously… Helm’s Deep sends its regards!
·Innovative Crowd-Combat System: Enemies have a flocking behavior and react using realistic physics. Every action of the player has an impact on all enemies.
·You travel across Girdlegard on a world map that contains dozens of battlefields and places just waiting to be discovered.
·Bestselling author Markus Heitz is directly involved in the project as a consultant and will contribute some quests and brand new characters.
