Today, Age of Wonders: Planetfall debuted its announcement trailer, and the video shows off the game’s vibrant setting, crisp graphics, and impressive voice acting. “Prepare for planetfall” seems to be the motto of this game as the trailer foreshadows a dramatic storyline that may involve either a new world or apocalyptic elements.
Planetfall centers around re-populating an ancient land where players will have to rely on clever battle strategy, deep exploration, and rebuilding to survive the abandoned and unfamiliar lands. The game will rely on the sturdy foundations of the newly built empires because that is how players will surely secure their victory.
The game seems to focus on structuring solid empires, so this will force players to utilize quick thinking and cunning strategy to win against others. This is definitely a strong new take on open world gaming. It appears that players will have to build bases armed with formidable defenses which can consist of loyal soldiers and alien like creatures. However, what really makes Planetfall so appealing is the amount of detail put into the animation. It is admirable that this game, for its focus of action and combat does not put visuals in the backseat.
But the visuals are not the only prominent features in Planetfall. The game will feature turn based combat where players can dish out their best offenses. The weapons will be customizable, and they can choose from a variety of races. Exploring the foreign world will allow players to fulfill quests or to choose the best spot to construct new and unique empires. For now, Planetfall is still in the works and is expected to release some time in 2019.
