What is Age of Wonders: Planetfall?

Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a 4X turn-based strategy game. 4X refers to the four main aspects of grand strategy: explore, exploit, expand, and exterminate. The game is hugely strategy-based and takes place on a procedurally-generated map in one of several planets, with the combat taking a turn-based form as well. It is the first game in Triumph Studios’ long running Age of Wonders series to be set in a science fiction setting, with previous iterations being based on high fantasy.

The game lets you control one of six races as you play in the campaign mode to uncover the mysterious secrets behind what brought about the demise of the Star Union, an intergalactic human government. The game also has a scenario mode and an online multiplayer mode, and all three are readily available to play from the outset.

When can I preload the game?

The game is available for preloading now across all platforms and will unlock at different times tomorrow. Planetfall releases worldwide on Xbox One and in Europe on PS4 right at 3:00 a.m. EDT on August 6. For American PS4 gamers, as well as everyone on Steam, Planetfall releases at 12:00 p.m. EDT on August 6.
