All friends of eye candy weep while all excellent fantasy turn-based strategy games aficionados rejoice at the news that Dominions 3 by Illwinter Game Design has recently gone gold. The game has been available for preorders from Shrapnel Games for some time now and is currently expected to ship on October 2nd.
The listed system requirements for Linux are as follows:
- 600 MHz Pentium II or Power PC processor
- Libc > = 2.1.92
- X-windows with OpenGL support
Despite the rather hefty $54.95 price tag Shrapnel Games warn all gamers to preorder quickly unless they want to get stuck waiting for a new print run. The game offers insane number of playable races, units (1500+), spells (600+), magic items (300+) and other content to make up for its unattractive looks. Dominions 3 game CD comes shrinkwrapped and bundled with an extremely thick manual which reportedly slightly reduces the number of years necessary to grasp all of the game’s tactical possibilities.
