Numantian Games has detailed a new update for their Steampunk real-time strategy game They Are Billions. Speaking in a post on Steam, the team outlined all of the new content set to arrive in the game. There’s a lot to unpack, with The Six Wonders update adding six major building items to the game.

First up is the Lightning Spire which gathers the energy from lightning strikes for use of your colony and adds 1500 victory points. The Atlas Transmutator transforms common materials into precious oil, adding 2000 victory points to the colony in the process. The Victorious is an unbreakable bunker which stands as the most amazing symbol of the victory of humanity against the infected. It’s a beacon of hope and courage for everyone in the colony. It adds a 20% gold generation buff for surrounding colonies and adds 2000 victory points. The Academy of Immortals is where the most famous heroes train the army to battle, it bumps all units up to veteran and adds 1500 victory points. The Silent Beholder is the most precise and complex machine ever created, it reveals all the map and enemies permanently, and awards 1500 victory points. The Crystal palace generates its own climate control environment, where the best crops bloom and thrive, feeding the colony even in the most barren lands, adds 1500 victory points.

The post provides a look at the Wonders in action, via a trailer showing how they work in game. Check out the trailer below:

The Six Wonders update is available now. The post concludes with an outline for future content:

Now, we want to put most of our workforce into developing the campaign and finishing the game. In the meantime, some of the new campaign content may be added to the Survival Mode, such as new map themes, new infected… and new features.

They Are Billions is currently in Early Access with just its survival mode, a campaign mode has been promised for launch. You can pick it up right now on Humble Bundle (affiliate link) at a price cheaper than the final release will be.
