Dominions 4 Update Adds New Race
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ilwinter Game Design has announced the release of version 4.07 of Dominions 4, the latest installment in the fantasy strategy series. The update adds a completely new race to the roster of over 70 races already available in addition to new spells, summoned units, crafting options, and a variety of bug fixes. The Ragha, a dark race that can adapt to both hot and cold climates, receives slightly different units depending on the climate as well as a variety of special summoned units and craftable objects.

Dominions 4 is divided into three playable eras, early, middle, and late. Each era has different, yet connected, nations. Every nation has a variety of historical or mythological troops that are connected to real world history and mythos as well as various other benefits or detriments. Upon selecting a new nation you will also be given an option of would-be gods to select. Every god is radically different with different mythos, stats, powers, and magic and can be massively customized to fit your nation or strategic plan. Perhaps you wish to create a hulking Cyclops with rock like skin and the proper magic to forge super powerful magical items, sending your god to the front lines and obliterate your foes. Perhaps, instead, you would create a physically frail Phoenix, instead using your magical fire affinity to rain destruction across the battlefield as well as through global enchantment without a care in the world if he dies, for if a Phoenix dies in your domain it is instantly reborn at your capital. Or stranger still, to create a god that summons monsters every turn like Pan and focus instead on leaving him in the safety of your capital summoning creatures from mythology to do his bidding alongside the regular national troops. There are millions of possible combinations to choose from.
 
Dominions 4 brings several major improvements and changes to the Dominions franchise. The largest of these changes is the Thrones of Ascension, which not only add valuable boosts to your blessed troops and help spread your dominion, but give an objective based game that is much faster than the previous Dominions games to win at. Additionally Dominions 4 has Disciples Mode, which adds a co-op mode where multiple players can have mini-gods called disciples which work together to ascend their pretender to godhood. Veteran players of Dominions will find a lot of UI and streamlining improvements, including the ability to auto-recruit, set battle formations, wrap-around maps, improve fortifications, and much more. Lastly the number of units and nations has increased about 20%, adding even more variety to the already robust world.
