Age of Wonders: Planetfall’s first DLC Revelations is here and we take a look at what this DLC means to add to the game.
Earlier this year in August I reviewed Planetfall and you can read the review here. This review will focus on the DLC Revelations, what it changes and brings new to Planetfall.
There are two new campaigns to play in the DLC and mostly revolve around the Es’teq dynasty. The base of the plot is that there’s an ancient utopian civilisation that is being brought back to life to take over the universe. The story is darker than that of the base game and with it brings along some new quest types and secret tech: Heritor.
The new quest type is called Anomalous Sites. Explore 30+ mysterious sites filled with traps and powerful enemies to reap unique rewards and uncover great secrets. With unique choices based on each faction, race or Secret Technology, players can combine multiple sites to create endlessly different combat instances. The sites come with their own rewards, for example turning them into Landmarks for added bonuses to your Colony, or giving you new units to add to your armies.
The Heritor tech is quite powerful, it is used to drain your enemies’ power which in turn can be used for various things like bringing back old allies (Summon new units), using powerful abilities and creating strong weapons. Tomb World Scenario brings Heritor enemies create an onslaught of destruction. This scenario also includes a new multiplayer questline to allow more players to join in on the action. Other changes made to Planetfall is included for the base game as well.
Revelations adds some more flair to the game, and this creates a lot of excitement for Seaosn Pass owners as there are still two major DLCs to come. Age of Wonders: Planetfal revelations expands on the great game and had me spent tons of hours again on this game. This game will eat away at your time and you will not even notice it. One of my favourite genres and this is definitely on of my favourite series.
