Age Of Wonders: Planetfall Promises Heroes Of Might & Magic In Space

Going from the game’s description on Steam, Planetfall doesn’t stray far from the mechanics of Age of Wonders — or 4X in general — featuring turn-based combat, different technologies to develop your civilisation and diplomacy to stop the AI from crushing you while you build a semblance of an army.

That said, the campaign will have an “emergent story” based on “the history of the fallen galactic empire”, so the single-player won’t consist of just firing up the skirmish mode.

The only release date provided in “2019”, so we’re in for a bit of a wait. Still, I’m always up for more sci-fi 4X titles, though I’m still waiting for the day something tops Birth of the Federation and Ascendancy.

  • Yeah cool. Age of wonder 3 was very good. It’s combat focused so don’t expect civ style multiple victory types and diplomacy is basic.
    But it’s a great game. I hope they keep that style for this new one.

  • Ascendancy? You’re not talking about that game released many years ago with lousy AI that everyone hated are you?
