BLIND GUARDIAN the age of "The Dwarves" begins today!

THQ Nordic celebrates the release of The Dwarves on PC and console with official music video 'Children Of The Smith' with members from heavy metal band BLIND GUARDIAN!

Heroic dwarf Tungdil - scholar, smith and blessed with a gentle heart - has to gather a group of fellow companions and embark on an epic journey to save Girdlegard (the once peaceful realm of men, elves and dwarves) from all evil.

The Dwarves offers massive-scale, tactical battles in real-time and a brand new, physics-based "crowd combat system", to let players feel the thrill of fighting hundreds of enemies with only a small bunch of heroes.

Besides the challenging combat, players can dive into a deep story, based on the best-selling series of novels The Dwarves by Markus Heitz.

During its successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2015, developer KING Art Games allied up with members from the famous German metal band BLIND GUARDIAN, who performed a tremendous song about The Dwarves: 'Children Of The Smith'.

The Dwarves is available NOW for PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One at a retailer near you or as a digital download.

Blind Guardian's epic opus and highly anticipated tenth studio album ‘Beyond The Red Mirror’ was released in January of this year. The album, which was produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (Saxon, Hammerfall, Helloween) showcases Blind Guardian's incredible collaborative work with three different choirs: one from Prague (Czech Republic), one from Budapest (Hungary) and one from Boston (USA). Plus two grand orchestras, each featuring 90 musicians. These brilliant talents combined to create spellbinding results.
The album transports listeners via a mysteriously powerful red mirror into an otherworldly dimension that includes tyrants, gods and the Holy Grail. The ten songs comprising Beyond The Red Mirror’s story lines revolve around the young protagonist who we first met twenty years ago in their 1995 tracks ‘Bright Eyes’ and ‘And The Story Ends’.
