There is a new age of wonder—not the kind that involves us contemplating the mysteries of childhood—but the kind that involves us blasting giant spiders with bolts of lighting. The first trailer for Age of Wonders III looks promising, and is a fine, and long overdue, addition to a fine game series.
Age of Wonders III is a 4x strategy game that pulls in RPG-inspired classes and specializations. It will add quite a bit to the series. According to the developers, these will include unique styles of play, with RPG leader classes from the warlord to the rogue, a brand-new tactical battle system that brings you closer to the combat, and an epic story campaign with two playable factions.
