Auckland, New Zealand - November 24, 2021 - Outerdawn today announced that Goblins Of Elderstone’s latest update, Alpha 24: Gobs of War, is now live, along with a new developer diary walking us through the new additions and tweaks to the city-building tribal simulator.

The war-like goblin leaders among you will be delighted to hear that Alpha 24 brings an added layer of tactical complexity to your war-mongering, with up to three strategies now available to toggle between in the War Hall. These strategies will influence how your goblin tribe approaches encounters with enemies. 

The Alpha 24: Gobs of War update also makes some changes to the flow of unlocking Gods. Gods from the goblin pantheon will gradually awaken from dormancy over time, along with the requirement for your goblins to worship them! However, players will still have the option to unlock each God early if they choose to do so. 

Big changes have been made to the Trek UI, an overhaul that ensures information is displayed in a far more digestible way. With this revision, creating parties and sending them out on treks is now clearer and more streamlined. 

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.
