Revelations is the title of the first large add-on to the game Age of Wonders: Planetfall, a turn-based strategy being a spin-off of the popular Age of Wonders series. The patch was developed by the authors of the original, i.e. Triumph Studios.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall - Revelations focuses on the resurrected Es'Teq dynasty after the fall of the Star Alliance, namely its people Heritor, who are trying to take control of the entire galaxy. Our task is to stop his victorious march or join him and take part in the birth of the theocratic empire.
Pillars of Age of Wonders: Planetfall - Revelations are two new campaigns in which we visit over thirty previously unavailable locations. In addition, the Cemetery universe, a scenario for battle-experienced players, is waiting to be tested, where you can play both alone and in the company of others, thanks to a specially prepared task path.
As you play, you can take control of Heritor's technology to suck out the essence of your enemies, give you access to powerful combat capabilities, summon additional units and create entropy weapons. Add-on introduces new opponents, i.e. harvesters (machines trying to annihilate every organic creature they meet), megalochs (mutant animals devouring everything that stands in their way), and the Forgotten (a fraction of outcasts that do not match the utopian vision of Heritor's society).
The list of innovations is closed with previously inaccessible places and mechanisms, such as Es'Teq well and Essence geyser, which provide our army with new effects and skills, a holopad that increases our ability to influence enemies and allies, and imperial dances that give us an advantage over our opponents (such as fire missile launchers, cassette mine launchers, and soul lanterns).
With this add-on, the basic version of the game received a free update, which brought the possibility of occupying new imperial ramparts, and also introduced orbital transmitters allowing for rapid transport of units between sectors.
Just like the basic version of Age of Wonders: Planetfall, Revelations allows you to play alone or in multiplayer mode.
Revelations is a dependent add-on, so it requires a basic version of the game to work.
