Dominions 3 announced for summer

April 15th, 2006 by Lightkey

Illwinter Game Design is working on the next installment of their complex turn-based game series Dominions since 2004.

Dominions 3: The Awakening will feature updated graphics while retaining map compatibility with its predecessor and inherit even more nations, units and spells.
As Illwinter and the publisher Shrapnel Games earlier announced, the plan is to go Gold in June this year and Shrapnel has opened preorders at 47.50$, which will rise to 55$ after May 20.

    Dominions 2 is the best turn-based strategy game I’ve played since the days of Master of Magic for DOS.

    I know that a lot of folks will be turned off by the dated graphics and potentially high learning curve, but it’s really worth it to give these games a shot. It’s a highly rewarding game to play once you figure out the mechanics of the game.

    Dominions 3 will feature increased races, units, spells, better graphics, and more refined gameplay than Dominions 2. Looks great! I can’t wait to play it.

    Dominions 2 was a truly fantastic game, and I expect Dominions 3 to only get better. But $55? That is just getting ridiculus.

    I know the graphics suck, but trust me, this game is damn fun. Dominions 2 is one of my most played games. The level of detail present without bogging the player down in micromanagement is really awesome. Dom2 was one of those games that I keep coming back to and playing after I got bored of the latest SHIT coming out.

    This game just got pre-ordered, its expensive — which sucks — but I’ll get my money out of it.
