You know that a game is lining up for a release when the developer and publisher start releasing a string of teaser trailers. The Dwarves, developed by King Art Games and THQ Nordic, is today starting this very sequence. After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015, King Art are now past the position to make the final adjustments to the much-anticipated game and prepare it for final digital and physical release.
They have released today, the first of a series of character trailers in preparation for The Dwarves being unleashed upon the world on the 1st of December. The hero spotlight for this debut character trailer is Boindil Twoblade.
Boindil Twoblade is one of Tungdil’s most loyal companions and friends. He is a ferocious fighter, quick and extremely agile. He can outpace both his enemies and his allies in battle.
Wielding two axes, Boindil is the killing machine of The Dwarves. He is brave and wild and loves a good brutal fight. Boindil Twoblade is just one of the 15 playable characters in The Dwarves. This new fantasy RPG will see players fighting in real-time against overwhelming superior forces, all with just a handful of heroes to fight with.
Boindil will defeat his foes with a range of melee attacks, including Blade Storm which is a flurry of flashing axe heads, Ireheart which makes Boindil berserk, Leap which knocks opponents to the ground and the oddly-named Oink-Oink which lures enemies away from more hard-pressed allies.
You can find out a little more about the game here, including a ‘making of’ reel for the soundtrack, which is composed by long time developer collaborator, Benny Oschmann. You might recognise his work if you’ve played Kinect Rush, Hitman Absolution or The Settlers 7.
The Dwarves is due for release on the 1st of December. Here’s the Boindil trailer.
