Let Your Divine Will Be Done As Dominions 4 Launches On Steam

Dominions4(1)

The latest game in the 15-year-old Dominions franchise released this month on Steam. Titled Dominions 4: Thrones of Ascension, this latest installment ups the fantasy strategy experience to a new level with a variety of new features. Broken into three distinct time periods, or “Eras”, players will have access to distinct nations across the Early, Middle, and Late Ages. Some nations are only accessible during certain ages, whereas other nations exist across all three. Those that do exist throughout all Eras of time will include noticeably different units and abilities, however.

Dominions4(2)

Feature-wise, Dominions 4 includes a new cooperative mode known as Disciples Mode where players take control of mini-god disciples and work together to ascend their chosen pretender to God status. Another new addition to the series comes in the form of the Thrones of Ascension, for which the game takes its subtitle. Conquering the Thrones of Ascension is a new win condition that also provides stat benefits and ability boosts to controlled units at the start of a match until it is taken by an opposing player. It also adds a new objective-based strategy that can hasten play sessions for those looking for a quick fix. Dominions 4 developer Illwinter also states that veterans of the series will notice a lot of UI and streamlining improvements. The game is already available for Mac, PC, and Linux, and can be purchased through Steam or Desura. Additional information can be found on the Illwinter website.
