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.”
