Warpzone Studio’s dwarven mining simulator celebrates its latest update as it prepares to burrow out from Early Access on 16th November. ​​​​​​​

 Team17 and Warpzone Studios have today launched the Relations Update for dwarven mining simulator, Hammerting which digs onto Steam, Epic Game Store, and GOG on 16th November. The Relations Update includes a food and rest system revamp so the dwarves will need to sleep in order to maintain morale; the denizens of the subterranean community will also discuss recent in-game events and form opinions of each other – effecting dwarven morale in game. Full patch notes for the Hammerting Relations Update, including bug fixes, performance improvements, and gameplay tweaks are available on Steam.
Hammerting Key Features

  • Control the destiny of the dwarves: As the colony grows, active management of the dwarves – including the friendships they make and their morale – will be key to helping the war effort
  • Design and create the ultimate base: Bore and upgrade a variety of rooms, from forges and sculpting studios to taverns and auxiliary functions and help the colony craft the ultimate base
  • Help with the war effort: Build and upgrade a variety of items through a deep levelling system
  • Discover valuable materials to quarry: Venture into the bowels of the mountainside & face increasingly perilous situations.

Throughout its time in Steam Early Access, Hammerting has received a hoard of updates that’s built upon its solid foundation, including; The Fluids Update, which brought lava and water to the cavernous environments the dwarves call home, together with new tavern and drinks recipes, ingredients, and knowledges; The Overworld Update introduced an overhauled Overworld featuring procedurally generated factions, locations, and roads; The Automation Update streamlined dwarven efficiency alongside the addition of a win state that challenges players to prove their dwarven mining prowess; and August’s Epic Crafting Update which introduced new armour and rings, equippable lanterns, valuable epic level items and an overhaul to Mountain Lore.   
Hammerting is currently available to buy in Steam Early Access for $24.99/£19.99/€24.99. To keep up to date with all the information on Hammerting please like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and join us on Discord.
