Today, at PDXCON 2018 in Stockholm, Paradox Interactive announced Age of Wonders: Planetfall.
The game is a new 4X empire-building game by Age of Wonders and Overlord developers Triumph Studios.
We don’t have a release date for the game just yet, but we know that it’ll come in 2019. Interestingly, it’s going to come for both PC and consoles, even if it wasn’t disclosed which consoles exactly the game will come for.
Below you can check out a list of features to wet your appetite:
- Strategic Turn-Based Sci-Fi Combat – Perfect your combat strategy in intense turn-based battles that offer tactical challenges, a large cast of races, units with customizable weapons, and destructible environments.
- Discover a Rich Science Fiction World – Uncover the history of the fallen galactic empire as you explore lush landscapes, and experience the emergent story. Encounter NPC factions and rival houses, and discover hidden technologies that can strengthen your society and give you advantage over enemies.
- Planetary Empire Building – Create your own unique House, and build prosperous colonies through economic specializations of planetary sectors and governing doctrines.
- Multiple Paths to Victory – Achieve your end goals through conquest, diplomacy or doomsday technologies. Engrossing options with NPC factions and rival Houses won’t make the decisions easy!
Triumph Studios CEO Lennart Sas also accompanied the press release with a statement, mentioning that the game runs on a new generation of the studio’s proprietary Creator Engine. He also promises that the game will “greatly expand” on its predecessors.
“We’re thrilled to finally announce our latest endeavor alongside Paradox. Age of Wonders: Planetfall is roughly three years into development, running on a new generation of our multi-platform Creator Engine. While the setting is new, we’re confident that Age of Wonders fans will feel right at home exploring the remnants of the Star Union. Our aim is to make a game that greatly expands upon its predecessors, and still employs the core principles that made Age of Wonders such a success.”
last, but not least, you can enjoy the announcement trailer just below. The game certainly looks very interesting, so we’ll have to see if it’ll live up to the titles that came before, and possibly surpass them.
