Everyone loves dwarves. They’re the lovable sidekick, the violent Scotsman with a heart of gold, and if you need beard advice, that’s pretty much their only hobby outside of mining and blacksmithing. In the world of fantasy fiction, they’re a race of compatriots, rarely ever starring in their own adventure. Until now, that is.
THQ Nordic has sent word that a Day 1 patch for The Dwarves will be deployed specifically targeting issues with console performance on both XBox One and PlayStation 4. Performance optimizations, graphical improvements and other general improvements will also be added alongside bug fixes. The patch will weigh in at 7.1 Gb for PS4 and 3 Gb for XB1.

The Dwarves is one of the few games I can't get out of my head since seeing it at E3. While the comparison might be a tad unfair, The Dwarves reminds me of the Lord of the Rings movie tie-in video games that released across the PC, PS2, and Xbox over a decade ago. If you never played them, they were a fantastic blend of action RPG that saw members of the fellowship taking up swords in the iconic set piece fights of the movie.
In what is sure to be the news that makes the day of our own Editor in Chief Bill Murphy, King Art Games has announced via a KickStarter update that The Dwarves will be heading into beta testing next week!
