New Trailer for Age Of Wonders: Planetfall Reveals the Strip-Mining Space Dwarves, the Dvar

Triumph Studios have released a new trailer showing off another faction in their upcoming sci-fi 4X strategy game, Age of Wonders: Planetfall.

The Dvar are a race of space dwarves that were stranded on an inhospitable world when the Star Union collapsed. They quickly adapted and became a highly industrial race that now travels the galaxy strip mining planets of their resources.

As seen in the trailer above, the Dvar focus on high explosive AOEs and terrain manipulation. They can destroy mountains or cause tectonic shifts that raise mountains in enemy terrain, and many of their units can destroy or build their own cover.

Here’s a rundown of the game:
