Dominions III Goes Gold
12:58 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Dominions 3: The Awakening for the Mac, PC, and Linux has gone gold and is expected to ship on October 2nd, according to a press release by publisher Shrapnel Games.

Dominions 3: The Awakening, developed by Illwinter Games and published by Shrapnel Games, is a multi-OS (supporting Windows, Mac, and Linux) turn-based strategy game set in a world of epic struggle between men, monsters, and gods. This isn't a game merely about conquering stone keeps and collecting golden booty; no, in Dominions 3 true victory comes not from shiny baubles and real estate, but true godhood!

Lead one of over fifty nations in three different Ages, against up to twenty other players (AI or human), in the ultimate struggle of sword and steel for the right to claim dominion over all. Simultaneous turn structuring keeps the massive number of players thoroughly involved in the game, without downtime, and with the incredible number of options available to players each turn, gameplay is always tense and exciting.

Just as NetHack, with its seemingly endless catalog of creatures and items is considered by many to be the ultimate Rogue experience, Dominions 3: The Awakening strives to achieve the same status in the world of 4X strategy gaming. Featuring more than 1500 troop types, 600+ spells, and 300+ magic items, it will take players an epoch to merely see everything Dominions 3 has to offer. Yet, that day never has to come. Dominions 3 has been built with the mod-maker in mind, allowing players to easily add new items into the game. Mod-making can be as simple as you like, such as easily importing new maps into the game, or more complex, such as creating new items.

While for many the true thrill of Dominions comes with playing against others, the single-player experience has been enhanced in Dominions 3: The Awakening with the oft-requested random map feature. An endless supply of maps to wage celestial war on at the click of the mouse! Other improvements over previous titles in the series includes less micromanagement, transparent mechanics, overhauled graphics, a streamlined interface, rebalanced gameplay elements, map filters, an autotax ability, a thick tome of a manual by Bruce Geryk, and much more. Fans of the series will find the core gameplay that is so addictive hasn't been changed, but the entire experience has been made cleaner, and less threatening to newcomers.
