Warpzone Studios and Team17 bring new top-side content to the Mountains of Mara with the Overworld Update for Hammerting. The early access dwarven mining sim sets players off on an exploration, crafting, building and mining adventure both below and now above the ground. A brand new trailer, viewable below, highlights all of the big changes in this update.
In the Overworld Update or Update 6 for Hammerting a vast mountain of new overworld content has been added. There are different factions that control the different parts of the map. The various factions have relationships with each other and the dwarven mountain home. Relationships will change dynamically over the course of gameplay because of various factors.
Besides the new factions there are various Overworld locations. Different locations want different items and is heavily based on the type of location. Occasionally the demand for some items will be higher and the price paid will increase. Demand will also go down if a player buys a lot of a type of item. When trading with a location, Trade Levels are gained. With gained Trade Levels more area near the location is revealed and Trade Lore is gained.
The Overworld overhaul lays out a foundation for the developer to add more stuff in the future. A planned Quality of Life update is coming after the Overworld Update. In this following update players can loo forward to a dynamic mission system, a Trader profession, and several more improvements.
