Dwarf Fortress Steam Release Now Has Awesome Arena Mode

If you are still threatened by base building in Dwarf Fortressreleased on Steam, then there is good news. Patch 50.06, released today, added Arena Mode to the Steam version. Arena is a sandbox mode where you can spawn any of the various creatures of the Dwarf Fortress, equip them with gear, set special conditions and then watch them battle. fight it. It’s great.

That Arena mode screenshot might not look like much, and it seems strange to go overboard with Dwarf Fortress mode that removes farming, resource management, and its emotional long arcs .

Arena mode works for me without all that, because one of the core pleasures of Dwarf Fortress is reading combat descriptions. Various types of imaginary mammals will scratch, bite, whip, slash, stab, cut, tear, grapple, and tear each other apart, and the consequences are depicted in vivid detail. As a result, arena mode allows you to try out different hypothetical scenarios in a TABS fashion – e.g. what if a dragon fights twelve elephants – and then reading the results takes place. It’s much more fun and easier than watching compelling battle scenes through the usual fortress mode.

There are other changes details in full notes. Subterranean plants now have sprouting textures and many other textures have also been modified; some crash bugs have been fixed, in addition to fixes for audio issues; and, as is the tradition of the dwarves, there are some patch notes that are fun to read. For example:

  • “Prevented dragons and other giant beasts from appearing as relatives of random dwarves in the fortress.
  • Allow emotionless creatures to satisfy their needs if they still exist.”

If you are wondering how Dwarf Fortress has performed since its release on Steam, the answer is extremely good. Kitfox Publishing House have also now published their own flashbacks of development and response to date.
