AoW3 Sales Milestone, The New Game and GDC

Hi there!

It’s been a while since our last update, but this doesn’t mean we’ve been off relaxing. We’re making great progress on our new game, we’ve been slowly merging multiple prototypes and tech improvements into a single build that’s shaping up to become something quite fantastic.GDC2016

In the meantime Age of Wonders 3 has quietly moved beyond 500k sales of the base game, with a similar amount in DLC packages. So it looks like we might have to cancel our plans to make the next title a free to play casual game. 😉

Also, we’ve been gathering updates for AoW3 for a future patch.  So please keep sending us reports.

A couple of the guys are going to GDC in San Francisco March 14-18, if any of you are going maybe we can find some time to meet.

More news from us soon!

    Already knew some stuff, but nice to see you haven’t forgotten the existence of news posts.

    Congratz on the 500k sales, and let’s improve that next game!

    Yeah, congrats, for the 500K sales, but even more importantly for “a similar amount in DLC packages”, because that obviously means, basically everyone who bought the basic game had so much fun with it that they bought the DLCs as well.

    Concerning the new game, if it’s in the TBS genre, I, umm, would like to be part of the folks who are involved in testing, if it’s not a too cheeky request …

    I think we all do lol!

    What I am truly curious to know is if the strong sales are enough to justify conceptual work on AoW4 whilst the new project is being made, or if that’s truly on the backburner.

    Unless everyone’s going to be too focused on getting busy with the new project when it’s out, of course.

    You just had me excited with this great news! I am also very happy about AoW3’s nice sales. For an almost niche-market game, this is a fantastic achievement. My favourite studio has become even more favourite:-). BTW. still playing AoW 3 like there is no tomorrow (830 hrs. and counting…)!

    First of all, congrats on this amazing achievement! You can be proud 🙂

    Second, thank you for your fantastic work, your friendly and helpful attitude towards the community. And of course, thank you for the little time travel to a world when there were no DLCs but expansion packs with real and meaningful content. Because your DLCs are in fact old school expansion packs.

    I dunno what you are working on right now, but with this attitude, you already have at least one buying customer 🙂

    #241408

    500k sales? Not bad. I guess you can finally afford to hire robots to replace you all. 😉

    Solid on release, drm free available on day 1. Two good expansions worth their price. Working together with the community, to improve it further. Substantial updates, including moddability and free content, shaping it into one of the very best games in the genre…
    I am glad to hear AOW3’s sales turned out to be good. They are well deserved.

    I’m really glad you got good sales out of this game as you do really deserve it.
    Masterpiece it is and besides you guys/girls have always been really good with your communication toward the community.

    Still… I’m really bummed… really bummed that such a great game ‘only’ reached over 500k sales. This game really doesn’t get the credit and attention it should have.

    Looking forward to your next game!

    Is there any chance we can see AOW: Shadow Magic 2?

    Congrats. It was a goddamn good work done. An impressive experience and it is said by one who is really demanding as far as 4x strategy games are concerned. Indeed an outstanding accomplishment. Keep it up!

    Glad to hear some news about the new project, even if very vague at this point. How feasible would it be to port AoW 3 to either Xbox One or Playstation 4? Might be a nice untapped market for Age of Wonders, I don’t know of any game similar to it on either system. Not that I personally would sully my hands on a console version… 🙂

    Since dev’s are hopefully reading this thread, I would still like to request a future AoW3 campaign. It doesn’t have to include new mechanics or races, just a nice, well designed campaign we can sink our fangs into for a few days.

    Looking forward to more (and more frequent) updates!

    Well, it’s great to hear some further vague news on the new project, and even better to hear of AoW3’s successes.

    Keep up the awesome work, guys, and I eagerly look forward to more information.

    While I most certainly have the wrong numbers, I somehow come up with an estiamted gross of at least 15M$*, which does seem to be quite a success 😀

    I hope you guys will continue to develope quality games like this and hey, perhaps more revealing news will be around the corner after the GDC ;P ?

    *Selling price of the game set to 20$, of the two combined DLCs to 10$ due to discounted saleevents on Steam/GoG/etc.

    No Mod, but I try to help - Bane of Cockatrice, a Star and an Onion.

    Congrats on the sales!

    Truly deserved for your contributions to the 4x genre in the past decade or two. I fondly remember goblin-rushing childhood days…

    I am suprised it`s not more than 500k sales. I have like 200+ games bought on steam with 2-3 turn based titles sitting at 250+ hours played, but AOW3 is my champion and most beloved game of them all with 1326 hours played right now. Hope that new game will be similar to it. Thank you thousand times for delivering this great masterpiece to us.

    #242246

    AAA Titles from companies that aren’t Blizzard or EA are the best games. This game is awesome. 500,000 is flat out amazing for such an involved strategy game. Good luck on the project.

    The two were unlinked – Lennart simply informed us that some were going in case anyone wanted to meet the devs there. New game news was simply ‘soon’ and untied to the GDC.

    This being the gaming industry, ‘soon’ could be anything between next Friday and the mid-2030s.
