Golden Realms Expansion and v1.4 Released!

This joyous day sees the release of both the feature loaded Golden Realms Expansion and the free V1.4 update. Thanks to all our fans for making this possible, developing, expanding and tweaking a huge game like AoW3 would be impossible without your feedback! The expansion and patch will massively improve your Age of Wonders III Experience.  Here’s what you can expect:

Golden Realms greatly expands Age of Wonders III’s empire building mechanics and introduces bucket loads of new content. These new features are used in random maps, new scenarios and a new story campaign, where Halfling survivors settle in a distant land filled with danger and treasures never seen before.

New Content Includes:

  • The Halfling Race: The little folk are back, with new units, heroes and leaders. The jesters shoots fireworks which dazzle the enemy and the cleaver flinging brew brothers keep the Halfling armies fed while on the road. Halflings can be used with all classes and introduce the new Luck mechanic which allows them to dodge incoming attack while they’re in good spirits.Features-Allie
  • Golden Realms Campaign. In this three scenario campaign, you help the Halfling survivors of the Heartwood Massacre rebuild an empire in an exotic land and confront an ancient evil.
  • Exotic Map Locations: Capture the Naga Dwelling, home to serpentine queens and giant man-snakes, and discover new treasure sites such as the fabled Lost City to benefit your empire.
  • Over twenty new units: Encounter new exotic units such as the filth throwing Dread Monkeys, alluring Mermaids and the fearsome Glutton who can swallow whole regiments in one bite.
  • New Hero Items: The Golden Realms contain 50 new magical artifacts to discover and use. Wield the enigmatic Crystal Skull, or wear a stylish Witch Doctor’s Headdress to mix in with the locals.
  • Wild Magic Specialization: Unleash wild magic. Cause spontaneous mutations, warp equipment and turn orderly battles into a pandemonium where the lines of battle are violently warped.
  • Partisan Specialization: Use new skills for guerrilla warfare. Create concealed hide-outs and develop ambushing skills.
  • Two hand crafted scenarios: Playable single and multi-player these new stand-alone scenarios are built around the new features of the Golden Realms expansion.

Features-Banner

New Golden Realms Features:

  • Mystical City Upgrades: Arcane treasure sites located in your domain unlock new unique upgrades for your cities, making the location and specialization of your cities more important than ever. Building a city near a Crystal Tree unlocks the Enchanted Armory which reinforces your armored units.Features-Glutton
  • Empire Quests: Achieve empire building goals before your rivals to unlock unique rewards for your realm. This introduces a new type of indirect competition between players. Examples are the Eternal City: be the first to build a metropolis and get an awe-inspiring Monument of Prime Good and Evil, where the first player to achieve full good or full evil alignment has a party of champions the respective alignment join at no cost.
  • Seals of Power: A new King of the Hill style victory condition where players must capture and hold the dangerous Seals of Power structures in order to achieve victory. Don’t sit and hold back as broken seals attract extra-dimensional beings wanting to take the Seal back.
  • Defensive City Upgrades: Each race has a unique city defense to build. The Draconian’s Firestorm Pillar sets ablaze those who dare attack their city. Or the Bell Tower for the Humans which rallies the citizenry to shoot volleys at oncoming enemies.

Features-Banner2The new content and features mentioned above are integrated into the updated Random Map Generator.

Age of Wonders III: Golden Realms is the first premium expansion and incorporates feedback from the community. It will coincide with the V1.4 patch adding updated AI, balance, a new Spell Disjunction System, Steam Workshop and Cloud Saves for Steam Users.  Get it here:

    No, you shouldn’t have to click anywhere special and your build number is the same as mine. This is how the campaign menu is supposed to look.
    null
    Maybe try the “verify integrity of game cache” option? It should check your game files and automatically download anything that might be missing.

    Yeah i don’t see that golden realms thing at all :(. Im uninstalling it and reinstalling it to see maybe if that will work. I did the integrity of game chache before i uninstalled it. I opened up AoW3 but it still wasn’t there. Hopefully uninstalling it then reinstalling it will work.

    The only other thing that comes to mind is going to “Register Key/DLC/Account Settings” and seeing if you can re-link your Steam and Triumph accounts and activate the dlc that way (although the button should be grayed out since the accounts are supposed to be linked already).

    If none of this works you may have to contact Triumph directly or make a thread in the support forum. Sorry.

    That’s what he’s missing. He’s not clicked the Register Key/DLC tab to have the AoW3 launcher acknowledge his purchase of the DLC through steam.

    “I am Welcomed in the Home of Ravens and Other Scavengers in the Wake of Warriors, I am Friend to Carrion Crows and Wolves, I am Carry Me, and Kill with Me, and Die with Me Where the Road Ends; I am not the Honeyed Promise of Length of Life in Years to Come, I am the Iron Promise of Never Being a Slave.”

    No idea, it didn’t require me to input a reg key on my end. When I clicked the register DLC option it quickly read from steam and automatically registered it for me.

    Not sure what is going on with yours. I guess wait for the Triumph guys to get back in the office (it’s nearly 2AM for them, I think) and contact them then with your problem.

    When you click the register key/dlc/account option it should automatically register any new DLC you have. If it hasn’t, then something has gone wrong and you’re going to have to wait for Triumph to get online and see if they can help sort it out, which will be in around 8 hours, I imagine.

    Uhm … how does Steam cloud work ? I supposed to see a green icon when the game is saved in the cloud, but it stays gray.

    I bought both dlc’s and I will start with golden realms. I was glad you can pay with iDeal on Steam, never thought that would be possible.

    bought it!!

    “Halfling Berserkers. Kneecaps beware!”

    Wow that is a great idea. Halflings look so peaceful. Berserkers may change that.

    This DLC is amongst the best DLC’s I have ever bought! I hope that the next DLC will include more units to every faction to make them feel as unique as the new Halflings do feel right now. 🙂 And don’t be afraid of changing mechanics like you have done this far. Do something really interesting for the underground, like dwellings that can only spawn underground, and possibly some units that could dig up from anywhere.

    Congratulations to Triumph Studios! Already played a little and it looks and feels great!

    #123576

    So I have both the Steam and GOG versions of the base game. Is there a way I can buy the Golden Realms expansion once but be able to play it in both versions of the game or would I need to choose between Steam or GOG?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I bought the Golden Realms expansion just in time yesterday, and thank you Triumph Studios for so many new features. I am looking forward to the new campaign and the new spells, monsters, etc.

    However, I’ve also tested both the old, original single scenarios as well as the levels of the original campaign. And one thing I’ve noticed is that the features of the GL-DLC are also embedded into the original scenarios, like the racial defense city upgrades for example. Nice.

    But to my disappointment, I had to find out that the new features have no place in the original campaigns, although I was so looking forward to it! Was there a technical problem that made the new features impossible in the campaigns? Or was it about “balancing”?

    I bought Golden Realms, but i can’t find any new track in the OST folder. Is there a way to have them?

    I take back my criticisms without reservation. This is a great new release for $10, and the new city mechanics are a lot of fun!

    Re: races, what about adding an option to automatically migrate all cities on conquest (aside from domains)? So if I choose humans, that’s all I get. That way you actually need to think about the costs/benefits of your choice.

    But, congrats on the success.

    Fantastic news!!!

    I’ve been swamped in work, now looking forward to getting swamped in the AoW 3 expansion! Time to get surrounded by Nagas and Gluttons with the little, merry, lucky halfling folk =D

    The patch, the compatibility, the map making guide are incredible and so well thought!!!

    I have AoW 3 on gog and have bought everything AoW related this weekend on Steam too, to check out the cloud saves etc, and to support you guys.

    You deserve the highest praises from us, the fans. A big thank you Triumph Studios!!!

    #124253

    Great work Triumph! I am having a blast with the 2 new scenarios playing as halfling with wild magic. So many cool new things including some hilarous items.
    Thank you very much and hope to see more in the future 🙂

    Kudos guys, really excellent DLC. I just did my first FFA on GR, it feels almost like a new game! Excellent new graphics, I love the new map. City mechanics are fun and also the empire quests – adds a new dimension to MP that I need to learn :).

    Not sure if anyone will respond, but… With new animals, I saw that the archdruid’s can summon elephants. Was the spell modified to allow dread monkeys to be summoned?

    Something witty.
