Paradox Interactive is at it again. The publisher has teamed up with Triumph Studios to announce a game that we’re over-the-moon excited for from the mere announcement alone. Age of Wonders has a big reputation for a good reason, and now there’s a new one on the way.

Age of Wonders 4 will launch on Sony PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC (via both Steam and Epic Games Store) on May 2. Like its predecessors it will be a 4X strategy game with a strong fantasy skew, thrusting you in the role of a Wizard King, and promises some deep customisation over just who it is that you’re leading into battle and conquest (the press release mentions “cannibal halflings” and that certainly puts a new spin on Frodo and Sam’s relationship).

The announcement trailer is great – watch the second half for a look at just how gorgeous this game will be. Best of all is we’re not going to have to wait long for it. It’s landing on May 2.

Matt S. is the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of DDNet. He's been writing about games for over 20 years, including a book, but is perhaps best-known for being the high priest of the Church of Hatsune Miku.
