The Dwarves Settle On Xbox One / PS4 and Windows PC

Posted on December 1, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

THQ Nordic has launched their cross-platform RPG title centered around the fantasy staple race The Dwarves on Xbox One, Windows PC and PlayStation 4 alongside a brand new music video by long-running German metal band Blind Guardian to celebrate the launch of the game.

Players take on the role of Dwarvan smith & scholar,  the heroic Tungdill, as he builds a group of companions as he tries to save the land of Gridlegard and save the races of Men, Elves and Dwarves.

Players and their group of chosen companions are able to take on hundreds of foes with 15 playable heroes across a multi hour campaign. During these tactical challenges The Dwarves will fight against armies of other fantasy races like orcs, zombies, dark wizards, elves and hordes of the undead. Developer KING ART promises that these battles will rattle player’s brains – they’ll have to plan out their next moves in real-time in order to overcome their foes.

Here are the recommended specs for the Windows PC version:

Recommended Specs

OS: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10

Processor: Intel Core i7 3770 3,9 Ghz / AMD FX-8350 4 GHz

Memory: 8 GB RAM

Graphics: GTX770 / R9 290 / 4GB

DirectX: Version 11

Storage: 25 GB available

Currently The Dwarves is available for 10% off on Steam for $44.99 CDN. The console editions retail for oddly specific price of $53.49 on the PlayStation Network and $33.99 CDN on Xbox One. For some reason the price of this title isn’t consistent at all across platforms.


The Witch and the Hundred Knights Dated For The West

Posted on December 14, 2013 by Les Major

Unlike previously reported by me last year, the west will be getting The Witch and the Hundred Nights this coming March in 2014. It seems I was a bit over excited before and confused the Japanese release date with the western one. To my understanding, the game has never been delayed. The game which was released in Japan this past summer is a PS3 title. Focusing on marsh witch Metallia and her hundred knights she can summon, Kotaku compared the gameplay to the likes of classic Zelda adventures from the NES and SNES era. However you’ll be using combos and special attacks, leveling up, and many fun things we’ve come to love about NIS games.

NIS has tried many different gameplay concepts from tactical in the past in it’s classic tactical Disgaea setup to the roguelike adventure found in Z.H.P. and The Guided Fate Paradox. The Witch and the Hundred Knights seems to be quite different than their other top down games such as ClaDun X2 and Legasista however. I haven’t had any hands on time yet, so I’m not positive about how damage occurs in relation to those two action titles, but the areas are seemingly an actual world to explore rather than random dungeons.

We’ll definitely be keeping up to date on this title and looking forward to the upcoming release.
