    PARIS – April 24th, 2024 The Last Spells acclaimed tactical RPG battles against swarms of evil beckoning humanity’s annihilation evolve today with the arrival of Dwarves of Runenberg, new DLC available on PC (Steam and GOG) courtesy of publisher The Arcade Crew and developer Ishtar Games. Dwarves of Runenberg brings a new map, debuts Dwarves as a playable character class, and adds new weapons as well as encore challenges all for €7.99, while a separate update free to all players brings further improvements.

    Launch trailer:


    Dwarves of Runenberg adds a new map in the town of Runenberg, where destructible, explosive crystals and mob-spawning statues will challenge even The Last Spell’s most renowned tacticians. The DLC also adds a Dwarven playable character class, introduces a new perks-granting system tied to the race of each warrior and three weapon types each with distinct skills. Dwarves of Runenberg’s additions collectively offer refreshing alternative strategic approaches to The Last Spell’s intensely rewarding battles against droves of monsters.

    Separately, The Last Spell will also see the release of a free content update offering a new weapon pool dilution system, more than 20 additional perks and trinkets, as well as bug fixes for all owners of the base game regardless of whether they purchase Dwarves of Runenberg.

    The Last Spell pairs turn-based combat, procedurally generated flanks of foes and stashes of gear, astonishingly large enemy armies reminiscent of Musou games, and roguelite elements to offer a distinct, highly replayable challenge. The Haven’s most promising defenders will learn to overcome disadvantages and the brute force of beastly hordes, gaining new skills and strategies through fights intensified by a pulse-spiking progressive metal soundtrack. Surviving The Last Spell’s brutal but fair onslaught will be nothing short of miraculous, but with wit to match the might of its defenders, humanity’s final Haven can still persevere.

    Join the war against humanity’s demise by purchasing The Last Spell. Keep tabs on The Last Spell’s devilish mobs and their relentless threats by visiting Ishtar Games’ Discord, and follow @TheArcadeCrew and @ishtar_games on X.
