Looks like Age of Wonders: Planetfall releases in August

The empire (builder) strikes back. 

It seems Age of Wonders: Planetfall's release date is not so far far away, as the Microsoft Store has listed it for release this August.

As spotted by ResetEra user FairyEmpire, the pre-order store listings for Planetfall on Xbox One reveal a release date of midnight on 6th August. Major Nelson's blog displays a release date of 5th August, although this is likely for US-based players.

Originally announced back in May 2018, Planetfall is the latest instalment in Triumph Studios' Age of Wonders series. Like past titles, it's a tactical turn-based empire builder with both single player and multiplayer modes: but this one's swapping swords for dinosaur laser guns. Don't tell Universal, or they'll start getting ideas for the next Jurassic Park film.

How wonderfall.

Along with the release date information, we now know pre-orders for Age of Wonders: Planetfall on Xbox One will come in three different editions - standard (£39.99), deluxe (£44.99), and premium edition (£53.99). The latter two get you a variety of extra cosmetics, while the premium edition also gets you a season pass, which gives players "access to three upcoming expansions and an instant reward".

Sounds like Triumph has a fair amount of post-launch content planned for this game. Reach for the stars, I guess!
