Age of Wonders: Planetfall Announced

Paradox Interactive announces Age of Wonders: Planetfall, an upcoming strategy game from Triumph Studios, who are taking the turn-based strategy of their Age of Wonders into a science fiction setting. The accompanying trailer is probably the most satisfying of today's videos from Paradox announcements, but that's not saying much. The Age of Wonders: Planetfall Website is recruiting a community, promising special unlocks as more join in. Here's the announcement:
Paradox Interactive today announced Age of Wonders: Planetfall, a new upcoming strategy game from Triumph Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Age of Wonders and Overlord series. Slated for release for PC and console in 2019, Planetfall will bring all the exciting turn-based empire building and immersive tactical combat of its predecessors to an all-new sci-fi setting.

In Age of Wonders: Planetfall, players will emerge from the dark age of a fallen galactic empire to craft a new future for their people. Exploring the planetary ruins and encountering other surviving factions that have each evolved in their own way, players will unravel the history of a shattered civilization. Fight, build, negotiate and technologically advance the way to utopia, in a deep single player campaign, on random maps and against friends in multiplayer.

“We’re thrilled to finally announce our latest endeavor alongside Paradox,” said Lennart Sas, Triumph Studios CEO. “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.”

Key Features:

  • 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!

Is he wrong though? Its Paradox publishing it.

While he is correct in his assertion that Paradox games tend to have a lot of DLC, what's he's ignoring/glossing over/ignorant of is their games also release significant free patches at the same time. New content is locked behind the paywall, existing content changes are part of the patch.

Yeah but AoW isn't like most Paradox titles with 50 billion DLC.

I feel it couldn't still be April. It also isn't the 1st of the month as far as I know. Yet, that title is still there...

Now you mention it, I can't remember the campaign at all, so maybe it was just in skirmish. Think Civilisation where you make alliances with friends.

Played it heaps more than Civ5 though, going around exploring, levelling/gearing up your heroes and units.

Awesome game.

Mildly disappointed at moving away from the fantasy setting because Age of Wonders 3 was my favourite fantasy 4x and I hoped for more of the same. Quite a lot of AoW3 is shining through in this trailer as well, the strategic and tactical screens are pretty much the same as before.

The regions are divided up with one single named feature each by the looks of it. Slightly reminiscent of Endless Legend, so some kind of gameplay changes are in there by the looks of it. Seems like you explore / clear out / claim resources rather than colonise everything. Hopefully there is some personality, the first glance is a bit generic.

Mostly I hope they keep what was good about Age of Wonders 3 (high accessibility without throwing away the strategy, interesting unit abilities, an AI that does tactical combat pretty well.) Also hoping for improvements where the game was weak (water combat was an afterthought, and no diplomatic systems really existed other than friends and enemies.)

Age of wonders 3 is one of the best strategy games of all times - and is even better in co-op.


Just hope this is more of the same. Been waiting for this announcement for a long time, just hope their new owners don't screw it up (by doing something stupid like removing co-op).

That would be pretty cool if they combined the two games.
