Good games age nicely

PS: They already patched the game like 3 times already, so at least they're dedicated

PS 2: I can't understand why somebody would rate this game lower then 8/10 though Can't. Stop. Playing.

So far this game seems hotly contested territory. I agree with Geny's approach, been doing that myself for the past years. Just wait and see what happens. Although I could make an exception if...
Eyo blob2, I heard you like supporting Triumph to the point of pre-purchasing. I know how you can support them even more and make yours truly a happy man indeed. What do you say, wanna hear it?

I'd also say, the more I'm playing the less I can stop. Everything is on another level, including difficulty on the higher levels, there is already mod support and PBEM play, and the game engine is a dream, running pretty cold on my 5 year old laptop, AI turns taking virtually no time.

PM me. As long if it's not some "shady business" I might consider it

Who would've guessed. Turns out melee Heroes can also be powerful in this game. I've been neglecting it cus with so many ranged units it's safer to have a ranged oriented Hero, but give him, for ex., a vorpal blade that sucks out life from enemies + melee skills and he's a beast. But the beauty (and balance) of this game is that even a powerful hero can still be decimated if he's too exposed to attacks...

Btw, Kir'Ko ftw: devour enemy units with Ravagers and make free larva units from them is one of their tropes Or you can always vomit green flesh melting goo on them...

AoW: Planetfall - Revelations

This seems to actually be quite a big expansion. New Secret Tech looks like a mini-faction in itself with a new damage channel and effects.

A lot of cool new stuff like new locations with faction based content and loot plus a 10+ hour mini campaign.

If this is a "smaller" expansion of the three I'm getting quite scared how big the other two will be

And even though I haven't even finished the campaign after 100 hours in the game I'm still very much enjoying it.

Best game of the year for me.

EDIT: Very cool unit design, me like:



(Yes, most of those are basically robo-sarcophagi)

EDIT 2: I watched the PDXCON presentation and there are also quite a few tweaks here and there that weren't mentioned (ex. getting into vechicle will keep your heroes stats now, there's a button to do manual combat instantly if you're not satisfied with auto combat result etc) which will make the game greater. So all of you who wait a couple of cycles for the game will probably get an even better product, which is saying much as the game already is incredible.

Even with the expansion released the steam people playing it have barely gone up. I think this is a disappointment for the company, even if the game is very good for the people that do play it, most people didn't have the patience to struggle with the UI.

That's a shame really. This game deserves attention, yet I've seen like 700 people on the PDXCON twitch stream. I hope they have enough sales for Paradox to not cut the production budget. Maybe Triumph has enough of their own money to keep it going in case of such a scenario. The game is great. I don't understand what you mean "struggle with the UI", I find every aspect of the game top-notch.

EDIT: Oh, wait a minute: https://www.pcgamesn.com/age-of-wonders-planetfall/sales! I've checked steamcharts, and while the numbers aren't impressive, the game still holds on somewhat.

For me the game is still looking good. I'm not getting bored of it, and some cool stuff is coming with the Revelations expansions just a few days away:

- big patch which overhauls piloting, naval battles, tweaks or nerfs unit abilities like evasion and rises strenght of Tier 3 units plus even more quality of life improvements
- orbital relays which will help you travel distances between your colonies faster
- anomalus sites -> quest chains system which adds some RPG elements: you get special perks/weapons/locations based on your choices and other aspects like secret tech or faction.
- and ofc the new stuff like new Secret Tech which looks scary and a slew of neutral units as mentioned in a post before.

You can read it all in dev dairies:

& upcoming Stegosaurus patch: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/sneak-peak-upcoming-stegosaurus-patch-v1-100.1275039/

Sales are good (26% rise for Paradox in Q3 comparing to last year) so game will probably recieve more support. The biggest complaint atm I see is multiplayer balance, but judging how it went with AoW 3 before it will all be ironed out eventually

I have to say that I find the game a tad boring, compared to AoW3. Stopped playing a few months ago, will start again after the first DLC (have a season pass).
Still, the game parts don't really click for me.

Well that might be the case for some...

But for me it's a total blast, and when I think it can get even better then I'm hyped. I can't remember when was the last time I would play a game for 150 hours and it still didn't bore me...

So far hadn't much time to play Revelations that much, only an hour or so. But on first glance it looks really good.

After completing the campaign and familiarizing with new stuff I must say the Revelations DLC is really fine.

Heritor tech is neat, plays really well with machine based abilities (so Assembly are probably the natural choice here) and while the Heritor Essence abilities are the most complicated yet they can be really fun and create some neat combos when you get the hang of them.

Forgotten NPC are probably my fav NPC faction yet (I'm in love with Eater of the Dead, such a cool unit), but those few new neutral units, especially Reapers (Liquidator!), are also very nice.

Anomalus sites might be the greatest addition yet, here's hoping they will build around this idea even more. Quest chains might be quite lenghty and some even end up with unique boss fights adding that additional "meat" to non-campaign games.

For those who are still wondering about buying AoW Planetfall I'll say this: the DLC might not be the big push you were waiting for, but it definately enchances the expierience. Those who were afraid that under Paradox their games won't be the same anymore fear not: it's still good ol' Triumph with their great care for fan feedback. They are constantly tweaking the game and literally fixing bugs or balancing issues/exploits on the go (yep they still prowl the forums checking for stuff that people report to them). So far there were like three substantial patches which even added new features already plus a few hot fixes/balancing patches. I'm not into multi but they have this Discord channel and it seems the community is active in providing feedback to make the multiplayer aspect of the game worthwile. Give them some more time and I think this game will be a masterpiece. For me it's already one...

Triumph just released a big patch for Planetfall that overhauls many mechanics, tweaks AI, rebalances many units and techs and so much more. All this is free.

AoW Planetfall: Tyrannosaurus update

For those of you who've been waiting to play the game, I think this is a good time to pick it up (it's also 50% off till Friday on Paradox store).

I myself am going back to playing my favourite PC game of 2019

EDIT: Planetfall is also 50% off on Steam atm.
