Long ago, the four goblin tribes lived in harmony in the Eldain region. The Earth Goblins tended to the forest, the Fire Goblins watched the mountains, the Water Goblins lived in the reefs and the Air Goblins guarded the plains. The land was prosperous and blessed by the spirits and by peace.
But everything changed when the tall races attacked. Elves, dwarves, merfolk and humans desecrated the goblin’s shrines, ravaged their land and destroyed their hope. Decades have passed, now the goblins are constantly bullied by the tall ones, reduced to nothing more than a nuisance for the so-called “heroes” of the land. Fed up with years of mistreatments, the four goblins tribes have reunited once more.
It is time to take back Eldain. It’s time for a revolution.
It’s time for an Uprising!
How it works
Level up and get stronger
The main objective of the game is simple: defeat the tyrant sitting on the center of the map. The first goblin to achieve this feat, wins the game.
Fight against the army of the Tall races. Face humans, elves, dwarves and merfolk in your quest to take back your land and save all the goblins.
Earn experience by defeating the troops around the map and even complete quests that the Goblinfolk have posted around the land. They award more experience but act fast, only one goblin can earn that prize. You can also cooperate with other players to defeat troops more easily, or even go against the general of the army himself and get some legendary items.
Equip your hero by fighting and going on adventures. Or backstab another player to steal their loot. Prepare yourself for the final battle by getting epic gear and making alliances with the powerful Guardians of Eldain that gives you special abilities.
Gather powerful loot & make legendary allies
Ever changing goal
As soon as the goblins get strong enough to challenge the final boss, the tyrant will change their behavior. Maybe they will get stronger and require another player to defeat them, or maybe they can only be defeated by a legendary weapon... or maybe they will just drop dead and the last goblin standing will be the winner. No game is ever the same.
Halt, Fire Goblin
I played this game with everyone in my tribe, and it was very funny, until the elves came and destroyed our fun...
Good last memories
This game is a masterpiece. I believe humanity has evolved hundreds of thousands of years for this very moment. This game is the requiem of humankind
Random Evil Human
This game sucks. Why are humans the bad guys? Goblins being the hero? Why can't play as a human?! I can't believe this. I hate everything about this game.
