Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Dominions
As if Dominions 4 wasn’t already packed to the point of bursting, developer Illwinter has added a new race to the 70-plus already in the game. The latest addition, the Ragha, are a dark race capable of adapting to hot and cold climates, with different units being available depending on which type of environment they’re recruited in. The update also features several fixes and tweaks, such as non-artifact items now capable of being unique, poison from poison daggers now ignoring etherealness, and a new population cap of 300,000. The full changelog can be found here.
Illwinter’s fantastically flummoxing strategy game Dominions 4: Thrones of Ascension is now available on Steam for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. The latest entry in the 15-year-old series tasks players with leading a faction to victory in one of three different periods by having their pretender god become the one deity worshipped across the lands. Thrones of Ascension adds more spells, units, and a co-op mode, Disciples. It’s a daunting game to be sure, but it features an exceptional system of layered mechanics—thumbs up from us.
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.
