Illwinter Games and Shrapnel Games have announced that the turn-based game
Dominions 3: The Awakening
has gone gold master. It’s expected to be released on October 2, 2006.
A turn-based fantasy strategy game for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows operating systems, Dominions 3 brings you a land populated by men, monsters and gods. You lead one of more than 50 nations in three different ages against up to twenty other players — either computer or human-controlled — you can play alone against the computer, or against other players in play by e-mail, Internet and hot seat modes. Your goal is true Godhood by dominating all your opponents, using military might, magic powers or subterfuge — or, preferably, a little bit of all three.
Dominions 3 is described as “very mod friendly,” designed from the get-go as a game that supports third-party add ons. Any image can be turned into a map, including those from Dominion 3’s predecessor, Dominions 2: The Ascension Wars.
The game will cost $54.95.
