Paradox Interactive and Triumph Studios revealed the release date and plenty of details about the first DLC coming to Age of Wonders 4, "Dragon Dawn."
The DLC will release for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S on June 20, 2023, priced at $9.99, £8.49, or €9.99, depending on where you live. It'll include all you need for adding a lot of dragon flavor to your campaign like dragon rulers, lizardfolk, more Tomes of Magic, and the “Ashen War” realm option.
Here's a full list of contents.
- Dragon Rulers, a distinct new leader type, customizable from snout to tail, with unique new skills, equipment, transformations, and associated events!
- Lizardfolk, a new physical appearance for your factions
- Tome of Evolution, adding new units that evolve as they level, and new spells to boost all evolving units
- Tome of Dragons, adding spells to summon dragons, wield the power of dragons, and become dragons!
A "Wyvern Update" free for all players will also be released at the same time, with plenty of improvements and tweaks to the base game.
The developer streamed the first gameplay of the DLC and you can watch it below.
Age of Wonders 4 is currently available for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. You can also read our review written by yours truly, in which I praised the "fetching visuals, deep strategic gameplay, tons of room for personalization, and great replayability."
The game has sold 250,000 units in just a few days from its release, which isn't bad at all in this relatively niche genre.
