PSA: Get Age Of Wonders III Free On Steam Until Monday
Paradox Interactive and Triumph Studios' empire-builder Age of Wonders III is available for free on Steam this weekend, until Monday, July 15. It's being given away to build up hype for the Age of Wonders: Planetfall Premium Edition, which launches on Aug. 6, and anyone who takes advantage of this free offer will get 10% off that game.
In Age of Wonders III, you'll choose from one of six RPG-style classes and ally with various fantasy races to build your civilization from the ground up. Battles use a "detailed 3D turn-based Tactical Combat System" and you can play single-player or multiplayer with up to seven other players. It's got an overall 79% positive rating on Steam, though its player numbers have been on the low side -- with a significant bump coming the past few days, of course.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall looks like the sci-fi version of the game, with many of the same elements and ideas. Its player factions, however, sound much cooler. Who wouldn't want to play as "dinosaur-riding Amazons and the cyborg-zombies of the Assembly"? Beats the heck out of "elves and orcs" any day!
