Age of Wonders: Planetfall (August 06, 2019)

The Star Union: once a vast empire connecting thousands of worlds, but its people have been left isolated and stranded following the Collapse.

Emerge from the cosmic dark age of a fallen galactic empire to build a new future for your people. Age of Wonders: Planetfall is the new strategy game from Triumph Studios. Build your empire with one of six unique factions, ranging from the militant Vanguard to the dinosaur-riding Amazons and the cyborg-zombies of the Assembly. Progress through each faction’s missions using your wits, military strength and diplomacy, exploring planetary ruins and encountering other survivors as you unravel the history of a shattered civilization. Fight, build, negotiate and technologically advance your way to utopia in a deep single player campaign, on random skirmish maps, and against friends in multiplayer.

Key Features:

  • Turn-Based Sci-Fi Combat – Perfect your combat strategy in intense turn-based battles featuring a large cast of factions, customizable units, and destructible environments.
  • Discover a Rich Science-Fiction World – What secrets will unfold when you uncover the history of the fallen galactic empire?

  • Multiple Paths to Victory – Achieve your end goals through conquest, diplomacy or doomsday technologies.

Metal Wolf Chaos XD (August 06, 2019)

The country is in peril as President Michael Wilson defends the nation against a full-scale rebellion led by Vice-President Richard Hawk and the mechanized legions he commands.

Battle in your advanced mech – armed to the teeth – across iconic American landscapes including the Brooklyn Bridge, the Grand Canyon, and the front steps of the White House.
