Recently, Paradox Interactive announced that Triumph Studios' Age of Wonders: Planetfall will be coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on August 6th.
In Age of Wonders: Planetfall, players will explore the remnants of the Star Union, a once-vast empire that connected thousands of worlds. Since the 'Collapse', people have been left stranded and isolated. Centuries later, these different peoples have turned into different factions out to rebuild their worlds as they see fit.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall will release three different variants: the Standard Edition for $49.99 that includes the base game, the Deluxe Edition for $59.99 that includes the Bravado Bundle Cosmetic Pack, the Spacerpunk Cosmetic Pack, and the Infested Worlds Scenario Planet, while the Premium Edition will launch for $89.99 and include all the prior content as well as the Season Pass, which will give players access to three expansions and a "platform-specific instant reward".
“It’s official – the countdown clock is ticking! We can’t wait to deliver this experience to fans, and are hard at work prepping Age of Wonders: Planetfall for primetime,” said Lennart Sas, CEO of Triumph Studios. “It’s a massive project, but I’m confident in our team, and know that players are going to love this game.”For players who pre-order any version of the title, they will receive the Paragon Noble Cosmetic Pack for free.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall will be released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on August 6th.
Quick Take:I've always been a fan of the Age of Wonders series, and Planetfall looks like it is going to be a solid successor. Truthfully, I haven't paid much attention to this newest title in the long-running series, but from what I've seen it does look compelling while also being fairly priced, which is great. I'll be sure to give this more attention as August nears, but for now, I'll be playing this by ear.
