Age of Wonders: Planetfall Announced, Launches 2019

Paradox Interactive has announced Age of Wonders: Planetfall.

The latest in their 4X fantasy strategy franchise is being developed for Windows PC by Triumph Studios (the dev on previous games in the series), and will launch sometime next year. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the game.

While the previous games focused on a high-fantasy type world, Planetfall opts for an interstellar and space-faring theme where you build up your own planet and seek out ruins to unravel the mystery behind your ancient leaders.

Here’s the first screenshots:

Here’s a rundown on the game:

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 deepsingle player campaign, on random maps and against friends in multiplayer.

Key Features:

  • Tactical Turn-Based Sci-Fi Combat: Perfect your combat strategy in intense turn-based battles that offer tactical challenges, a large cast of races, units with customizable weapons, and destructible environments.
  • Discover a Rich Science Fiction World: Uncover the history of the fallen galactic empire as you explore lush landscapes, and experience the emergent story. Encounter NPC factions and rival houses, and discover hidden technologies that can strengthen your society and give you advantage over enemies.
  • Planetary Empire Building: Create your own unique House, and build prosperous colonies through economic specializations of planetary sectors and governing doctrines.
  • Multiple Paths to Victory: Achieve your end goals through conquest, diplomacy or doomsday technologies. Engrossing options with NPC factions and rival Houses won’t make the decisions easy!
