When Paradox Interactive bought up Triumph Studios in the middle of last year, it seemed like a great fit and opportunity to add a new flavour of 4X strategy gaming to the publisher’s catalogue with the Age of Wonders series. Now they’ve announced the latest game in the series: Age of Wonders: Planetfall.
Coming to PC and consoles in 2019, Planetfall takes the fantasy series into the realms of science fiction, adding new ideas to the mix of empire building and turn-based tactical combat. Emerging from the ruins of a fallen galactic empire, you’re looking to ascend to rule the galaxy once more, whether playing through a single player campaign, on randomised maps or against friends in multiplayer.
Lennart Sas, Triumph Studios CEO said, “We’re thrilled to finally announce our latest endeavour alongside Paradox. Age of Wonders: Planetfall is roughly three years into development, running on a new generation of our multi-platform Creator Engine. While the setting is new, we’re confident that Age of Wonders fans will feel right at home exploring the remnants of the Star Union. Our aim is to make a game that greatly expands upon its predecessors, and still employs the core principles that made Age of Wonders such a success.”
