PC and Consoles Get Fantastic 4X Fun

The Age of Wonders: Planetfall - Revelations DLC is now live! This brand-new expansion to the latest game in the Age of Wonders 4X franchise brings a bunch of fun for players to experience, and a new content update has arrived for everyone who owns the game as well.

Before we get into the patch, let's kick things off with a look at the release trailer for Age of Wonders: Planetfall - Revelations!

 

Now doesn't that look neat? Here's what players can look forward to in this particular piece of DLC according to a press release from the publisher:

  • Anomalous Sites Mechanic - Explore 30+ mysterious sites filled with traps and powerful enemies to reap unique rewards and uncover great secrets. Encounter unique choices based on each faction or Secret Technology.
  • Additional Campaign Missions - Experience the awakening of the Es’teq dynasty and the rise of their Heritor descendants with 10+ hours of new content across two campaigns.
  • New Secret Tech: Heritor - Use ancient Heritor technology to drain the essence of enemies, fueling the opportunity to use powerful abilities, create strong Entropy weapons, and summon new units.
  • Tomb World Scenario - Challenge yourself to complete this deadly new Scenario, where Heritor enemies create an onslaught of destruction. This scenario also includes a new questline to allow more players to join in on the action.

That's not all, though — all owners of Age of Wonders: Planetfall are getting a free content update. A new ability to take over Imperial Defenses has been added, giving players access to Operations which boost the combat effect of colonies. Furthermore, the new "Orbital Relays" mechanic beefs up your infrastructure and allows for nearly instantaneous unit movement between sectors.
