It's Hammer(ting) Time - Hammerting Launches on Steam Today

By Joel | November 16, 2021

Team17 and Warpzone Studios have today announced that dwarven mining sim Hammerting has launched out of Early Access and into full launch on Steam, the Epic Game Store, and GOG. To coincide and celebrate today’s launch comes a hoard of new content, as well as online cooperative multiplayer gameplay. Controlling a colony of subterranean denizens, forge the most efficient mine possible and utilize every tool available to craft the ultimate subterranean base.

In addition to the cooperative gameplay that allows players to join up with friends to work together, the launch update introduces new game mechanics that provide further depth to the experience: Factions in the Overworld will now declare war against one another, sending armies to engage in combat until one side is crowned victorious; the ‘Book of Tings’ has been updated with new text and images, and topics are now categorized; ‘Hammertings’ can now be held in the Great Hall, bringing together the colony and granting bonuses to the Mountain Home; more items, materials, and recipes have also been added alongside a plethora of performance updates, gameplay tweaks, and bug fixes. Full patch notes for Hammerting’s launch can be found on Steam.  

Throughout its time in Steam Early Access, Hammerting received a hoard of updates that are built upon its solid foundation, including:

The Fluids Update, which brought lava and water to the cavernous environments the dwarves call home, together with a new tavern and drinks recipes, ingredients, and knowledge;

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;

The Epic Crafting Update which introduced new armour and rings, lanterns, valuable epic level items and an overhaul to Mountain Lore;

The Relations Update, which included food and rests system revamp;

And most recently the Fishing & Farming Update, which brought a bountiful haul of content, including farmable crops, the ability to construct a fishing pier, and the ability to upgrade dwarven dwellings to make them cosier.

More information about the game can be found on the official Steam page.
