[Update]: The upcoming Invasions expansion is bringing in a race of highly militaristic and rather sneaky Lizardmen.

After a fairly solid Age of Wonders 3, Triumph Studios have now returned with the brand new and standalone Age of Wonders: Planetfall. It brings with it a massive new world to explore, a variety of highly customizable factions, numerous upgrades and research options to toy around with, and naturally, a whole bunch of different routes towards victory.

However, since that can apply to just about every single 4X strategy game these days, allow me to also share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of just what Age of Wonders: Planetfall is all about. Have a gander:

I haven't played Planetfall myself, so take the following with a few grains of salt, but from what I've read online it seems to be following in Age of Wonders 3's footsteps. In other words, it appears to be a solid and rather fun game with some noticeable problems that will requires multiple patches, or perhaps and expansion or two, in order to fully iron out. So if you're a fan of the 4X genre, I'd say it's well worth giving it at least a closer look.

Whatever your opinion may be, you can learn more about Age of Wonders: Planetfall, as well as potentially grab yourself a copy, by hopping over to Steam. Have fun!
