Development Update and Return of Journals

Hi guys, just a quick post that we’re making great progress on lots of new Age of Wonders goodies for you.  The upcoming update should include Steam Workshop support and Cloud Saves. This should make it easier for you to exchange user made scenarios and manage save games across multiple computers.

The tech team is working hard on porting the game to Mac (and likely: Linux).  Already did most of the graphical side of things; the release will likely coincide with an expansion.

Then we’ve got lots new features and content in the works.  The first new race (one with –ling in the name) is nearly complete with others in development. New races are a lot of work: core units, class unit variants, leader and hero assets, City and TC graphics, new abilities, balance, etc). We also have an exotic new dwelling, new monsters, music, classes and a new campaign in the works.  We’re also testing some exciting new mechanics that include new victory conditions and a new type of quest.

Stay tuned, as the Development Journals will return in the near future!

    That’s great news! Thank you for this Triumph!

    Now what can those -lings be… Tigranlings! I knew it!

    Sounds good. Look forward to all of that, and maybe the new Victory Conditions the most.

    Good to hear some more from the dev team.

    “classes”…interesting. Necromancer will be one. What will the other one be?

    I’m going to be amused if the new race turns out to be something else, rather than frostlings, after all. :D But that’s highly unlikely.

    #101376

    Archonlings…

    fluffypinkbunnylings…..

    The mind boggles.

    Classes!? ClassES, as in, plural form of Class?

    If that’s true, then WOOT! :happpydance: :throwmoney:

    Edit: oh, a new race is great news too!

    Yes! This is a typo or indeed there will be a few classes?

    So much new exciting stuff, that I prefer not to believe some of it. To not overload and explode.

    I’m looking forward to it.

    Very cool all of that! Looking forward to new races and classes and especially a new campaign :) ) Hope it continues the story from the end of the AOW3 campaigns!

    This update is just music to my ears… And thanks for the Frostlings in advance, we all know it is them! A new campaign? Wow, you guys are just incredible!

    Because they stated early on that Halflings wouldn’t be in the game because they don’t fit with the current lore.

    I’m sure if we harass them enough they’ll change their minds in time. :p

    As for my guess… Trollings!

    #101413

    Had a conversation about this before, its clearly the UNDEADLINGS people. Seriously, how could it be anything else =P

    In all honesty though, i would put my money on the frostlings gameplay wise or the halflings storywise (though ive always said that the hobbits will be released around the same time the battle of five armies hits cinemas).

    Story wise, the halflings had that contest thing before the game was released and as a people they are spread through the continent more so than the frostlings and ths i can imagine it being easier to tie them into the story without a new campaign going up north.

    I say the frostlings are more likely since the arctic terrain is going mostly unused atm without them and i can also imagine a new dwelling coming along with a frostling expansion more than the halflings.

    BUT! What if its a new -ing race! That would be very interesting. The Rocklings! :D

    Frostling as a race?
    Halflings in dwelling?

    Thats wonderful news. I am still enjoying AoW3 as it is, but more content to look forward to is always nice.

    Now, either Frostlings or Halflings. Both are a good choice, and something id look forward to. From a game balance point of view i am slightly rooting for the Frostling, there is just to little Frost damage in the game.

    Classes are ofcourse also awesome. New race/class combo’s means a lot more ways to play the game.

    Just one litle question for Lennart because you mentioned “The upcoming update” in your today’s post. Can we expect this upcoming update to be released sometime in late June? Thanks in advance.

    Oooh, I can’t wait to get undeadling evangelists. They’ll knock on your door, and persuade you to join our religion to follow the great Nekron. To show your commitment and to join the cult, your initiation ritual is to commit suicide, only then you can get to the divine form of an undeadling exalted :D

    Please add in a few new races or put back the old ones that “disappeared”. A new fancy class would be nice necromancer or something troop based. Anyways best wishes.

    And maybe a bigger naval unit variety.
