Fantasy series Age of Wonders returns to PC, this fall

With Overlord developer Triumph Studios returning to the helm

The fourth entry in the Age of Wonder series, Age of Wonders 3, will make an appearance this fall on PC, thanks to series creator Triumph Studios -- which has spent recent years with the Overlord series. It will be the first entry in over a decade, with the last being Shadow Magic in 2003.

Age of Wonders is a strategy-RPG that merges tactical turn-based combat with city-building. It debuted in 1999 through a partnership between Triumph and Epic Games, which may also be returning according to a hint dropped by lead designer Lennart Sas in a Eurogamer interview.

Details on this sequel are scarce, but Triumph will continue the traditions of turn-based battles, an explorable world, play-by-email mode (!), and user creation tools. New races, upgrades, and campagins will be added as DLC. Triumph is making an effort to give players more options in building an empire, by combining various elements of factions together.

“For example: as a Goblin Theocrat you can build your own holy empire, recruit little goblin crusaders or cute winged goblin angels equipped with flaming weapons, and wage war on your heathen enemies," lead designer Lennart Sas said, in a press release. "We want players to be able to choose between lots of different play styles, without being restricted by fantasy clichés, like All Goblins Are Evil."

The series has earned favorable comparisons to Heroes of Might & Magic and Master of Magic, over the years. Its unique blend of genres and fantasy setting produced a cult following that hasn't had a title like it to latch onto, in a long while.
