The Dwarves major update adds three different game modes

meet the dwarves major update adds three different game modes linux mac pc

The Dwarves has received a major update and promised patch, adding a complete #newgameplay experience on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Hence with these #Challenges, players are given access to three different #gamemodes. First is Horde Mode where the heroes fight against a vast enemy army that grows in numbers and difficulty from wave to wave. While Time Challenge demands players to kill all opponents as fast as possible, whilst in Chase. Since the goal is to capture a running Orc with his rucksack, while hacking and slashing through his comrades.

So all of these new modes in The Dwarves can be played directly from the main menu. To add a competitive edge, players will earn points and can unlock all of the game’s 15 heroes to use them in these modes. While a high score leaderboard shows the results of each attempt.

Sadly there is no trailer available for The Dwarves changes. And to be honest, I would have liked to have seen some gameplay.

The Dwarves Patch notes:

  • New game modes: 3 different Challenges on 6 maps
  • 3 new achievements for the new challenges
  • New campaign difficulty mode: Very Easy
  • Engine update: performance upgrade in many scenes
  • Divided display language and subtitle option
  • Turkish language added (Subtitles / OnScreen-Text)
  • Optimized camera collision
  • Additional graphics settings
  • Free Key Bindings

Since the patch is now live on Steam for Linux, Mac, Windows PC as a free 5.6GB download. While at the time of writing, the GOG installer has not been updated, yet.
