Age of Wonders: Planetfall is the new strategy game from Triumph Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Age of Wonders series, bringing all the exciting strategic turn-based combat and in-depth empire building of its predecessors to space in an all-new sci-fi setting.

Emerge from the cosmic dark age of a fallen galactic empire to craft a new future for your people. Explore the planetary ruins and encounter other surviving factions that have each evolved in their own way, as you unravel the history of a shattered civilization. Fight, build, negotiate and technologically advance your way to utopia, in a deep single player campaign, on random maps and against friends in multiplayer.

Looks like the same engine and basic gameplay as AoW3. Have no doubts it will be a good strategy game.

The real question is do they really want to imitate Alpha Centauri. The name certainly suggests so as well as trailer with that postapocaliptic dystopian view. Maybe not. They can still create something that would be remembered as one of the greatest 4X even if it doesn't have any killer larger than life things.

I only hope they'd get a better release. AoW3 became great after patches and expansions and many people didn't remain long enough to see them.

looks like AoW3... but not crap as it is scifi! and everything scifi is better.. it is a universal constant.

Also look at their screenshots. I liked how AoW3 random maps have lot of personality, but those screens beat it.

screenshot looks dope af

Woohoo! Never got into AoW, but as Tragic said, everything scifi is better! :)

I'm interested, but on the other hand, when they talked about a fallen empire and reclaiming glory, I was kinda hoping for something in the vein of Emperor of the Fading Suns.

On another note, I am enjoying PDX's goofy presentations. Much prefer that to the overdone schlock you get at E3.
Maximilian May 19, 2018 @ 3:37am 
Yeah, PDox has always been "down to Earth" and "one of the boys/gals" in their presentation. I like it.

As for the game, I trying to remember who said it will be Age of Wonders but in future, kind of like a SMAC-AoW hybrid. Except though it's far more into the future (post galactic dark age instead of first colony) and will have more alien factions. Who ever it was, they called it!

That was me. I don’t remember how I learned that it was a sci-fi terrestrial 4X, but I caught wind of it a couple years ago, even.

I’m incredibly blown away by what I’m seeing here. What an incredible look to it and a fantastic direction for Triumph to head in.

I want to beta test the shit out of this one! Please tell me that I’ll get the chance...

A perfect call on that one DD.

It does look really good, and I am excited for it too. Honestly, I am more eager for this title than PDS's new Rome GS game (and I am a Rome fanboy so this a lot coming from me).

I think the “terrestrial science fi” thing came from a screenshot of a science fiction looking vehicle on a hex map.

I generally oppose reusing game names but I strongly support Triumphs game design concepts so I look forward to this.

I’m not sure sci fi is better though because there is a lot of PR value in creating a character and cruising around the map with a unit that looks like them. And that’s easier on a fantasy scale.

There’s a reason cosmetics were so popular.

Look foward to it.AOW3 was great.
Mezmorki May 19, 2018 @ 6:15am 
Super stoked!

There was a lot of speculation about what this game would be. I was fairly certain it wasn’t going to be AoW4 (just a feeling) because why would they do that? AoW3 is still a perfectly solid and modern feeling game. I was hoping it would be a terrestrial sci-fi game the whole time as well.

Very excited for this one!!!

I believe it was Rob who scooped this like 2 months ago, or maybe more.
