Age of Wonders: Planetfall announced that it is releasing its first expansion with Revelations. Revelations officially launches November 19 and is offered at a suggested retail price of $14.99. It is also going to be included with the Planetfall Season Pass. As the first expansion of Age of Wonders: Planetfall, it expands the world of the game while also introducing the ancient Heritor Secret Technology, new campaign missions, and even location mechanics.

What Revelations does is it sets in motion the return of the entombed Es’Teq dynasty. The Heritor descendants of this dynasty plan to use ancient technology and reincarnate billions of followers across the galaxy in order to establish divine rule. The Heritor posseses strong Entropy weapons which are effective against machines and can awaken ancient Es'Teq minds. Players can either claim ancient secrets or simply succumb to their power.

With the expansion, players can expect these new features:

  • Anomalous Sites Mechanic
    • Explore more than 30 mysterious sites filled with traps and powerful enemies in order to reap unique rewards and uncover great secrets.
    • Encounter unique choices based on each faction or Secret Technology.
  • Additional Campaign Missions
    • Experience the awakening of the Es’teq dynasty and the rise of their Heritor descendants with new content across two campaigns amounting to at least 10 hours of gameplay.
  • New Secret Tech: Heritor
    • Use ancient Heritor technology in order to:
      • drain the essence of enemies

  • Threats to Your Empire
    • Reapers are robotic assassins created ages ago with the aim of destroying those who are friendly and support the Heritor cause.
      • However they now go after any who walk the planet.
    • Just as deadly are the Megasow and Piglets.
      • These are bio-engineered critters that have gone rabid after the fall of the Star Union and devour anything in sight.

      • Soul Beacon
      • Cluster Mine Launcher
      • Firestorm Missile Silo
  • Free Content

    • The Orbital Relays mechanic boosts empire’s infrastructure to allow for nearly instant unit transportation between sectors.

Triumph Studios Co-founder and Age of Wonders: Planetfall Game Director Lennart Sas said in a statement that Revelations "allows players to explore deeper into the Planetfall universe, uncovering how the collapse of the Star Union empire has awakened beings from its mysterious past.”
