…and this is how we end every work day in the bar downstairs… no wonder we took 11 years to get you another Age of Wonders 😉
Many questions have come to us asking for to the exact dawn of the Third Age of Wonders. The Seers here in Delft, the Netherworld, project this jubilant new Age will dawn when the clock strikes 6 in the evening in Continental European Lands (CET), and the clock strikes 9 on the shores of the Great Pacific Seas (PST). May there be much rejoicing!
With just a couple of hours until the game’s release, we have a couple of new English Language Let’s plays from Youtube gaming celebrities for you to check out. These let’s plays give a great view of what’s the game is all about, and as the game is soon deep and varied, each video is different and even developers discover new things by watching these vids 🙂

Today we announce the 6th class of Age of Wonders 3, the fearless and brutal Warlord, with another 20 minute long game play video. In this video the battle hardened armies of an Orc Warlord Iron Lady march to crush the nations of weaklings.
For more information about the Warlord Class, check the class page.
“A Warlord once told me that a nation at peace was a nation breeding cowards to be enslaved. Warlords rule by the Law of the Sword, establishing a chain of command based on battlefield glory and duels to the death. Their armies consist of highly specialized, mobile troops and powerful beasts trained to do their bidding. Warlords are master tacticians, and often legendary warriors unto themselves. Though they tend to trust the power of their hardened armies over supernatural forces, Warlords have mastered arcane skills that strengthen their armies. They instill mythical courage in their own troops, while striking terror in the hearts of their foes.. ” –“Gifted Lords of the Third Age” by Ralinstone Pedant, Chronicler
A radiant sun shines over Triumph Studios today, a perfect moment to reveal the long-expected Theocrat Class with another 19 minute long game play video, once again narrated by Tombles. In this video he finally gets his chance to convert you to Goblindom as he roams the lands with his Goblin Theocrat, spreading the good word, and bringing light to the blighted lands. Watch as his army fearlessly engages the heretic Sorcerer hordes in her own backyard, scaling the walls of her city and showing just how powerful those on the righteous path of the Theocrat can be.

“Theocrats lead the masses by their hearts. They heal, persuade, minister and convert. Their zealots are fiercely loyal, convinced that any action they perform will earn them a greater reward in the afterlife. Because Theocrats tend not to wield many directly offensive powers, it is tempting to believe Theocrats pose no threat. History has proven this to be foolishness. Many earthly kingdoms have fallen under relentless crusades where holy armies of martyrs, evangelists, templar knights, war shrines and angelic beings bring Armageddon to pagan lands.” —“Gifted Lords of the Third Age” by Ralinstone Pedant, Chronicler
