Developer Illwinter Game Design is celebrating the fifteenth birthday Dominions with a new entry, Dominions 4. The latest in the grand strategy series has launched online for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows PC on Desura. Dominions 4 puts players in the role of a struggling demigod at war against others also striving for godhood in a battle that spans across three eras. Players will be able to select a nation and create a customizable demigod from “millions of possible combinations” with which to lead an army of troops both historical and mythological.
New to the series is Disciples Mode, where players control disciples in a co-op campaign to ensure their pretender ascends to godhood. A few of the gameplay changes from Dominions 3 include the ability to set formations, auto-recruit, and improve fortifications.
Dominions 4 is a download-only release and is now available for PC.
