The Prophecies Are True: Age of Wonders III Now Available!

The legendary fantasy series makes its return to the legendary PC platform

DELFT, the Netherlands, March 31, 2014 – Triumph Studios, the team behind the successful Overlord and Age of Wonders series, announced today that Age of Wonders 3 is now available on Steam, GoG and retail in select territories with a recommended price of $39.99 (local prices may vary)

The third Age of Wonders title revives the classic fantasy strategy gameplay of the original, where kings, queens, and dark lords battle for the spoils of an ancient paradise. This iteration adds RPG-inspired classes and specialization, letting rulers craft empires of their own design and craft their own unique strategies and play styles. 

"After 39 months of hard work, we're finally letting our baby out into the world. We're excited to let people finally return to the game they loved so much," said Lennart Sas, Development Director at Triumph Studios. "The new classes and specializations let players choose to play the way THEY want, rather than being hemmed in by the typical fantasy restrictions."

·          Explore, expand and exploit a living fantasy world. Discover wondrous locations and gather legendary heroes.

·          Command a variety of races. Pick your starting race and shape your people’s destiny using your leader’s unique skills.

·          A brand-new tactical battle system renders each battlefield and siege in great detail; new rules include flanking and a massive set of special unit abilities.
