Paradox Interactive today announces the release of a new game from Triumph Studios: Age of Wonders 4. The first installment in the award-winning Age of Wonders fantasy strategy game series in nine years, it brings new levels of customization and replayability to the quintessential empire, role-playing, and... the top-notch tactical battles of the series. Age of Wonders 4 will be released on May 2nd, 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

"For 25 years now, Triumph has been exploring new locations for our original fantasy strategy series, and the fans who have taken this journey with us have made it a worthwhile endeavor," said Lennart Sas, co-founder of Triumph Studios and director of Age of Wonders 4 "Even after all this time, we're still adding amazing new ideas to Age of Wonders, and whether you've been there from the beginning or are entering our worlds for the first time, everyone will have a very special experience."

New origins and mechanisms

Age of Wonders 4 invites players to rule a fantasy realm in their own style, in a mix of strategy, role-playing and turn-based combat. Mighty wizard-kings have returned to the world to rule as gods among mortals. Players must rise to challenge this dominion, using Tomes of Magic to unleash arcane destruction, evolve their armies, and gain new abilities and forms. For the first time in the franchise, players can create their own custom factions and leave their mark on countless worlds with every choice they make.

Empire-building from the wildest dreams: Players shape their own following by combining body types, social traits and arcane powers. They can create anything from a cannibal halfling clan to mystical moon elves, or recreate their favorite fantasy character. Players seek out powerful spell books to magically influence their armies, while watching their own people adapt physically as they transform into angelic beings or descendants of Chaos to face their enemies.

Strategy meets RPG like never before: every decision opens up new possibilities and tactical advantages; deep multi-layered strategies allow you to try new tactics or discover new powers in each round. Tactical turn-based battles bring the armies to life, from skirmishes with roaming monsters to massive sieges with many units on each side!

Write Your Own Legend: A new event system brings unprecedented storytelling possibilities to 4X games. Choices affect the entire realm, whether glory is achieved through brutal domination, cunning alliances, or ultimate arcane knowledge. Your creations can even appear as potential rivals or allies in later games as players experience a new chapter in their own created story!

Leave your footprint in a vast, reactive realm: Players explore a new realm each turn or create their own! New variations can be challenged by combining locations and features, from frozen wastelands ruled by Ice Queens to abandoned ruins where dragons roam. With a massive variety of empires, units, and environments to make the game endlessly playable, Age of Wonders is now more mod-friendly and leads to a more open ending than ever before in the franchise's history.
