#AgeOfWondersPlanetfall

Age of Wonders Planetfall Revelations is the first piece of DLC for the sci-Fi iteration of the turn-based strategy series Age of Wonders. This new content adds an entirely new technology to research complete with additional units, a new NPC faction, two new story scenarios, and some new map features. Revelations is a great first expansion for AOW: Planetfall. What it adds is well polished and allows for more variety in your playstyle. My only wish is that the Heritors or the Forgotten were a new faction instead of a tech/NPC respectively. First and foremost let’s get to one of the biggest additions. The new secret technology known as ‘Heritor’ that gives you a new way to customize your faction. As with the other secret techs already in the game, this can radically change how you decide to build out your army and has the potential to alter the way you loadout your commanders and units. With both new items and units that can be researched for your army, this tech is not to be ignored lightly, less you face the wrath of the essence drinkers. Essentially it’s life essence, think of Heritor units as Vampires and you won’t be far off. They have strong entropy weapons that can drain essence from other units on the battlefield and use it to enhance their own abilities or activate abilities requiring essence. That said I did feel like the new tech tree could have done with some more units to really flesh out, I would even go so far as to say that the Heritors almost feel like the essence mechanic could have suited an entirely new faction but perhaps that is asking too much.

Age of Wonders Planetfall Revelations Speaking of additional threats there are also new enemies not allied to the Heritor tech or The Forgotten faction, these dark beauties are known as Reapers were built to hunt anything using Heritor technology but, as sci-fi killing machines often do, they have malfunctioned and are now killing anyone in their path regardless of your tech affiliation. Alongside them you’ll also have to deal with mutated wild pigs (affectionately named the MegaSow) and other fun creatures, the planet really isn’t all that welcoming to you if I’m being honest. Alongside all of that, you also get an additional 10+ hours of story content in the form of two campaigns. These deal unsurprisingly with the new units and factions. From what I’ve played of them so far these both feel as good as the original campaign that the game launched with, there is nothing groundbreaking here but if story content is what you are looking for more of then you can’t go wrong with what’s on offer. The writing is great and learning about the Es’Teq dynasty and how all this new technology came is a nice incentive to finish them. Speaking of new content to play through we also get a new scenario called Tomb World. First off this planet is not what I was expecting, I thought it was going to be a barren waste but instead, it’s a jungle paradise. Lovely greenery everywhere you look. This makes sense in retrospect given the inhabitants have been entombed up till this point. This new scenario heavily populates the world with Heritors, Forgotten and Reapers and if you just want to jump in and see all the new stuff then this is the easiest way to do it.
