More strategy games are being ported to the PS4. If that puts a warm smile on your face, thereby hiding a cold, calculating heart, Age of Wonders: Planetfall should be on your list of potential games for 2019.
The story in AOW: Planetfall is that there used to be a huge governing body called the Star Union. After the Collapse, those glory days are hundreds of years in the past. All that’s left now are the remnants of species and ideas that used to stretch across thousands of planets. Not everyone loved the Star Union, so it will take some sweet talk or sweet guns to get people to see your point of view.
In the trailer, the Vanguard faction has been in cryo sleep for two hundred years, and they have woken up on the wrong side of the rocket bed. They certainly aren’t using sweet talk to communicate. As one of six species in the game, perhaps diplomacy and negotiations are not their strength.
If you decide to pre-order, you can grab some cosmetic packs and a scenario pack in which you will survive on a dangerous planet. The deluxe edition will contain all of this and the season pass. There will be three separate expansions included with a “platform-specific instant reward” in the season pass.
Promising a meaty single player campaign, multiplayer, and skirmish maps, Age of Wonders: Planetfall will be touching down on the PS4 on August 6th.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
