The lights are on
Triumph Studios’ announcement of Age of Wonders III may be a triumph for fans of the strategy role-playing game series.
Age of Wonders III – the first iteration in the series since 2003 – will allows players to craft empires of their own design, and introduces RPG-inspired classes.
“In Age of Wonders III, we extrapolate RPG style classes to be the leaders of fantasy empires,” says Lennart Sas, development director at Triumph. “For example: as a Goblin Theocrat you can build your own holy empire, recruit little goblin crusaders or cute winged goblin angels equipped with flaming weapons, and wage war on your heathen enemies. We want players to be able to choose between lots of different play styles, without being restricted by fantasy clichés, like all goblins are evil."
A tentative release date of late 2013 has been set for the PC game.

Looks live Civ V.
back in the day i had a blast with AoW I and II ... so this is epic news to me... i just hope it delivers on all aspects of a good game :)
Never played any of the previous games, but this looks intresting. I'll keep an eye on it.
Hope i can upgrade my PC by the time this comes out.
:O It looks pretty cool. I'll keep my eye on this.
AWESOME! Age of Wonders is one of my favorite series. Was not expecting them to make another one. The first 2 Age of Wonders games are still extremely fun now.
It's about time they're fairly representing the goblin race. We're people, too, you know...
sh- *added to my wish list*
I don't have a gaming PC but it does look fun. I wish strategy had a little larger prescience on consoles.
i remember playing the demos for the 1st and 2nd games when i was younger , really loved them but you know how you can't get everything you want as a kid lol ... i'll be looking forward to this
Consider me interested!
