Description

Rule a fantasy realm of your own design in Age of Wonders 4! Explore new magical realms in Age of Wonders’ signature blend of 4X strategy and turn-based tactical combat. Control a faction that grows and changes as you expand your empire with each turn.



Triumph Studios’ award-winning strategy series has emerged into a new age, evolving the game’s iconic empire building, role-playing, and warfare to the next level. A new storytelling event system and hugely customizable empires provide an endlessly replayable experience, where each game adds a new chapter to your ever-growing saga.

Powerful Wizard Kings have returned to the realms to reign as gods among mortals. Claim and master the Tomes of Magic to evolve your people, and prepare for an epic battle that will determine the ages to come.



  • Craft your followers by combining bodily forms, societal traits and arcane powers. Build anything from a clan of cannibal halflings to mystic moon elves, or recreate your favorite fantasy tropes
  • Seek powerful tomes of magic to enchant your armies and evolve your people! See your people physically change as they morph into angelic beings or scions of chaos to face their enemies.
  • Seek glory through brutal domination, cunning alliances, or ultimate arcane knowledge, and write your legacy into the very fabric of the realm itself!



  • Every choice opens up new possibilities and tactical advantages; deep, multilayered strategy allows you to try new tactics or explore new powers at every turn
  • Tactical turn-based battles bring your armies to life, showcasing their power in an environment shaped by your decisions. From skirmishes with roaming monsters to vast sieges with dozens of units on each side, with the addition of a morale system and more features, every battle brings a fresh challenge
  • Tremendous variety in empires, units, and environments keep the game endlessly replayable. Age of Wonders is more moddable and open-ended than ever in the series’ history



  • Explore a new realm with each game - or create your own! Challenge new variations and combinations of locations and features, from frozen wastelands ruled by ice queens to desolated ruins where dragons roam
  • A new event system provides unexpected levels of storytelling for 4X games. See your decisions shape the world around you, from growing cities and roaming armies to world-warping magic effects
  • Guide your empire to greatness - but the story doesn’t end with your victory or defeat! Ascend your rulers to an in-game pantheon and unlock ways to further customize your experience. Encounter your own creations as potential rivals or allies in subsequent games, and experience the next chapter in your own story!

Decent launch, the game had some issues that have been mostly resolved, crashes, bugs etc. There are still some remaining, but all in all the current gameplay loop, solo session stability, race/faction creation and the core mechanics, are in pretty good shape. There is still a lot of polishing left to do to make this game stand among their other 4X games like Stellaris and EU4, but there is huge potential for this game to be one of the best 4X of its kind.

Now that I've praised the game I should mention a few of its shortcomings. The games tutorial is decent, but it is a bit overwhelming, it tends to overexplain. Overall the tooltips are useful, but not fantastic. Combine this with the questionable UI and it gets a bit annoying.

The games AI is... strange. It's very easily manipulated by doing moves a regular human would see as idiotic, such as sallying out of a siege and leaving the city undefended, however, the AI sees this as an opportunity to attack your main stacks regardless of if they could have taken the city or not. This happens on all AI difficulties. You can also bait the AI armies into going back and forth between your armies and their initial goal. There are improvements needed and I hope they are actively working on the core game and not just developing DLC. (There are already 4 DLC's planned. lol)

On the topic of DLC. There are features in the upcoming DLC's that should have been in the game on launch. Two most notable: More races and a new dimension. I understand that it is a Paradox game and that this is nothing new with their business practices.. but come on. lol
  • Fun gameplay loop
  • High replayability
  • Great customization for factions
  • Lackluster UI
  • Wonky AI
  • Features that should have been in the game(on launch) are coming in future DLC

A very solid and fun 4x game which is similar to Endless Legends but puts a bigger focus on customizable faction and heroes and offers a lot of options for magic and how to use it.

I hope they add some QoL features wich makes item management less annoying.
  • Solid 4x gameplay
  • Customisable faction
  • Focus on Hero and Magic
  • Only 6 races
  • Item management very underdeveloped

Extremely poor multiplayer, you're stuck in waiting while any combat occurs... that's when the game doesn't crash. Test with 2 friends, we all have random crashes and files corruption.

The game is great as a solo game but the extreme lack of multiplayer features and unstability makes it impossible to play.

This is a HUGE stepdown from what they did with Crusader Kings 3.... Extremely disappointed.
  • -Good gameplay
  • - Better graphics than most Paradox games
  • - Poorly designed UI, lacking a lot of details (necessary ones too)
  • - Very unstable multiplayer, works fine in solo
  • - Extremely trash design as a multiplayer, as explained before.
