Dwarf Fortress: When will it be released on Steam? What do we know thus far?

11 years ago Wired ran an article on Dwarf Fortress. The world took note. What the hell is that? They collectively though as they stared at screens full of ASCII characters that, if you squinted and looked at a certain angle, could potentially look like Tolkeinesque map.

Many have given up at the first hurdle, the sheer inaccessibility of the base game leaving many people shocked and uninstalling after only a few minutes, but if you ever persevere long enough to get it, you will find worlds to game in that no other mega-franchise can match, and if you ever get it, you will find worlds to game in that no other mega-franchise can match.

That my friends, is Dwarf Fortress, and there is genuinely nothing like it to this day. It is without a doubt an incredible world simulation, spanning centuries of (made up) history and such a fiendish game mechanic that once you “get it”, you will never both with a FIFA or Assasin’s Creed ever again.

If the hardcore text graphics are beyond you, there are plenty of tile packs and extra such as new sounds and so on that have been created over the years by the community to help make things a bit more accessible.

When is the Dwarf Fortress release date?

Dwarf Fortress has been out for years, but not via any of the mainstream sites. The base game is over 15 years old now but is still being developed for and constantly evolving, so think not when it was first released, just how recently its latest iteration arrived, and that was at the end of January 2021.

How much is Dwaft Fortress?

Unbelievably, this massive labor of love is free. Yes free. You could be about to give up the rest of your life on something that costs you nothing. That doesn’t happen very often.

When is the Dwarf Fortress Steam release date? The Steam page for Dwarf Fortress tells us: “The deepest, most intricate simulation of a world that’s ever been created. The legendary Dwarf Fortress is now on Steam. Build a fortress and try to help your dwarves survive, OR adventure as a single hero against a deeply generated world.”

That however is only half the story as the release date is listed only as “Time is subjective.” Time has indeed been subject as it was added to Steam in March 2019 and set to be published by Kitfox games and include an enhanced tileset. There is genuinely no further rumor or murmur other than that. It will arrive when it arrives we guess
