What’s this: giant space fish? Insectoids? A fully developed diplomacy system? The new Age of Wonders game is looking very different from its high fantasy predecessors, having taken to the stars to explore a brand new sci-fi setting.
Landing on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on 6th August, Age of Wonders: Planetfall is the latest game from Triumph Studios. As per any Age of Wonders, the focus is on tactical turn-based battles and empire-building, with its trademark role-playing elements in the form of characterful races thrown in.
This time, players are required to build their own empire from the ashes of the fallen Star Union – possibly a cautionary tale for what happens if you fail to manage your own resources correctly. The aim, as ever, is to meet a victory condition: either through conquest, diplomacy or doomsday techs.
