The gaming community is smart enough to pay attention to details, which is often why the public finds out details about new games even before the developers and publishers confirm it. That was the case with the official release date of the Age of Wonders: Planetfall. The reveal happened on the Reset Era forum where one of the users posted about the appearance of the listing on Steam.
Other users started reporting that the game is available for pre-order in other stores, too. It didn’t take long for the Triumph Studios, the development team behind the release, to confirm the news and make an official announcement.
We can expect Age of Wonders: Planetfall to hit the digital shelves on August 6th, 2019. At this point, the game has been confirmed for PC and Xbox One.
Three Different Editions
It has become customary for the developers to offer several different purchasing options during the pre-order period. As for Age of Wonders: Planetfall, you can choose between the following:
- Standard Edition – includes only the game and available for $49.99
- Deluxe Edition – an extra scenario planet, digital artbook, and two cosmetic packs are also included in this version. It costs $59.99.
- Premium Edition – aside from everything mentioned above, it also includes the season pass, wallpapers, and forum icons. Be ready to pay $89.99 if you want it.
The intriguing thing about these different versions is their covers. On the Deluxe cover, you will notice that the main protagonist is wearing cool sunglasses and moustaches! Things get even better on the Premium cover, which features opponents made of pure gold – literally.
What Is the Age of Wonders: Planetfall?
The newest addition to the franchise published by Paradox Interactive will stay true to the familiar formula. A turn-based strategy with sci-fi elements and single-player and multiplayer modes. The game has been in development for three years, but it was officially announced in May 2018.
Planetfall aims to take the franchise to the next level while keeping the core concept. You will establish a new House and meet other NPC factions while trying to fulfil your objectives by developing technology, being a diplomat, or conquering territories.
