'Age Of Wonders: Planetfall' (ALL) Star Kings Expansion Planned For Next Month - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 13, 2020 @ 11:33 a.m. PDT

Age Of Wonders: Planetfall will bring all the exciting turn-based empire building and immersive tactical combat of its predecessors to an all-new sci-fi setting.

In Age of Wonders: Planetfall, players will emerge from the dark age of a fallen galactic empire to craft a new future for their people. Exploring the planetary ruins and encountering other surviving factions that have each evolved in their own way, players will unravel the history of a shattered civilization.

Emerge from the cosmic dark age of a fallen galactic empire to build a new future. Build an empire with one of six unique factions, ranging from the militant Vanguard to the dinosaur-riding Amazons and the cyborg-zombies of the Assembly. Progress through each faction’s missions using wits, military strength and diplomacy, exploring planetary ruins and encountering other survivors as the history of a shattered civilization unravels.

Fight, build, negotiate and technologically advance the way to utopia, in a deep single player campaign, on random maps and against friends in multiplayer.  

Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a turn-based strategy game that’s heavy on combat, with an immersive tactical battle system. In Planetfall you can recruit, create, and mod a large variety of units for several unique species that all operate differently on the battlefield. Utilize your wits, as well as cover, firepower and secret technologies to win battles, land, and loot.

The universe in Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a colorful one, full of mystery and wonder. The aspect of the game being set in a galactic post-apocalypse is a means to explore the planets of Star Union, rather than a drab reminder of previous civilizations’ failures. The story of the game is told emergently in the world maps, and by exploring you can encounter new technologies, other surviving species, and uncover lore that will let you puzzle together what really happened to the mighty Star Union.


Embark on an epic journey to unite all races and finally bring unity to the shattered galaxy when Star Kings, the third expansion to Age of Wonders: Planetfall, launches on November 10, 2020 for PC (Steam, GOG.com or PDX Store), Xbox One and PS4 for a suggested retail price of $19.99 / £15.49 / €19.99.

Star Kings is the final expansion for the Age of Wonders: Planetfall Season Pass and will bring a new playable faction into the mix, an all new story campaign, and more! In addition to the launch of Star Kings on November 10, there will be a free update available for all Planetfall players adding tons of new content including the ability to build your own custom galactic empire.

Previous expansions gave us a glimpse into the past and present conflicts of the Star Union but Star Kings looks to the future and lets players mold the galaxy in their own image to plant the seeds of an empire that will last forever. New features coming with Star Kings include:  

  • New playable faction - The Oathbound: The Oathbound are a group of noble Paladins who pilot giant mechs and tear their foes apart with massive arc weapons imbued with lightning. The mythical Seers are the benevolent yet cunning leaders of the Oathbound that support their Paladin brethren in battle through their ability to see into the future from their connection with a mysterious computer system.
  • New story campaign: Lead a courageous Paladin of the Oathbound on a mission to save all of mankind through the use of the mythical Grail Configuration. The journey leads players across the galaxy to the fabled planet of Union Prime where the Star Union was born and secrets long forgotten come to light.
  • Grail Configurations: Powerful new landmark structures earned through multi-stage quests. These mysterious structures were created by an extinct race of crystal entities and are used for powerful long term bonuses that are integral in forging the biggest  empires possible.
  • Wildlife additions: Three new wildlife groups are joining the fray. The Psionica, vampire-like rock creatures that feed on psychic energy; the Apostates, former Oathbound that have given up their vows to embrace chaos; and the Mycelians, sentient mushrooms that have taken control of farming equipment to become cyborgs.

The benevolence of the Oathbound extends to all Planetfall players! Alongside the launch of Star Kings, a free patch will be added with new features that everyone can enjoy. Key features coming with the patch include:

  • Galactic Empire: Customize your own empire by conquering worlds with progress that carries over between play sessions. Combine technology from various races and carry over heroes between planets as you lay the foundation of an eternal empire!
  • New worlds to conquer: New worlds to wage war on! Each world will have different traits and bonus objectives adding a ton of gameplay variety and extra challenges as you take over new planets to expand a growing empire. 
  • Tech requisition: Develop new strategies by adopting and combining secret tech from various Planetfall races. Wild combinations and unique tactics can be created that change up the battlefield in crazy new ways.
  • Residential Sectors: Create Super Colonies by building beyond the city sector limit and use a variety of racial upgrades to maximize economic variety.
  • Endless Research: Each tech tree now contains a ‘Future Tech’ skill that can be researched an unlimited number of times. Future Tech provides a random stacking bonus every time it is upgraded encouraging you to keep on researching forever!

Key Features:

  • Strategic Turn-Based Sci-Fi Combat -  Perfect your combat strategy in intense turn-based battles that offer tactical challenges, a large cast of races, units with customizable weapons, and destructible environments.
  • Discover a Rich Science Fiction World - Uncover the history of the fallen galactic empire as you explore lush landscapes, and experience the emergent story. Encounter NPC factions and rival houses, and discover hidden technologies that can strengthen your society and give you advantage over enemies.
  • Planetary Empire Building  - Create your own unique House, and build prosperous colonies through economic specializations of planetary sectors and governing doctrines.
  • Multiple Paths to Victory - Achieve your end goals through conquest, diplomacy or doomsday technologies. Engrossing options with NPC factions and rival Houses won’t make the decisions easy!
