Tribal city-builder with a survival twist builds towards release with another big content drop now live
Auckland, New Zealand – October 05, 2021 – Outerdawn today announced that Goblins Of Elderstone’s new Heroes of Elderstone update is now live, populating the new tavern building with heroes that can be hired to aid you on your grand adventures and pillaging raids, as well as adding a host of other new features and fixes to the game.
The new tavern building added in the update will be a place for heroes to congregate, giving you the opportunity to hire from a large selection of random and unique heroes to help defend your goblin village or provide powerful bonuses to a trek when assigned as their party’s leader. A new batch of heroes looking for an excuse to share their epic stories and down some goblin ales will wander into the tavern every in-game Summer, giving players a fresh batch to choose from.
Players might recognise some of the heroes, such as the Goblin Adventuring Party from the wonderful Goblins! webcomic. There are also a selection of special goblin heroes designed by Kickstarter backers, as well as the appearance of a hero from Stormbane, the novel set in an alternate version of Elderstone.
The Heroes of Elderstone update also adds a host of new features, balancing changes and bug fixes. Highlights include the addition of the new goblin traits Insomniac, Immune, Strong, Savage, Hot-Blooded, Hippie and Speedy, adding a layer of depth to the game’s intriguing tribal simulation systems, a new warning system for conditions and needs, and a new notification system for construction sites missing resources.
This new content drop follows in the footsteps of the Gods of Elderstone update, which added a pantheon of gods to be worshipped and exploited for the betterment of goblin tribes careful to treat them well enough to avoid their mighty wrath.
Players will be able to get a taste of what Goblins of Elderstone’s unique tribal-based city-building gameplay has to offer in person at the upcoming EGX event taking place between 7th- 10th October at ExCel, London, where the game will be playable.
Goblins of Elderstone is currently available in Early Access on Steam for 19.99 USD / £15.49 / €16.79 with a final launch expected early next year.
About Goblins of Elderstone
Goblins of Elderstone is a unique take on the city-building genre with a goblin-fuelled survival approach where nurturing tribal dynamics is key. Your emphasis is not only on buildings and commerce in your town, but on crafting the culture of its inhabitants and making sure they are happy. Treat your goblins well and they will (mostly) listen to you. Fail to meet their needs and expect them to riot, steal and kill each other. In addition to gathering resources and crafting structures, you must engage a layer of diplomacy as you navigate relationships with neighboring tribes, intrepid explorers, bandits, heroes and even gods. Your wits and skill at bartering/bribery negotiations, as well as the occasional pillaging, will help you transform Elderstone from a small village into an empire to be reckoned with.
