Age of Wonders: Planetfall Kir'Ko Faction Spotlight Video
Triumph Studios released another Age of Wonders: Planetfall faction spotlight video. This time, the focus is on the Kir’Ko a former slave race that has broken the bonds of slavery to forge a new path for themselves.
I must say, the design of the main Kir’Ko units seems pretty similar to the aliens in District 9. Insectoids that have been mistreated by humans.
But they aren’t all fragile insect as the Kir’Ko has the Ravenous, a large melee unit that will tear enemies apart.
But they do have a pretty nice variety of units that have abilities such as psionic attack, burrowing, and hatching larvae to create new units.
The Kir’Ko seem to be a mostly melee based army and their tech is what they’ve pillaged from the fallen Star Union colonies.
What’s interesting is that they can chose a branching path in tech. If they decide to punish their slavers or to go for reconciliation.
So far, what I’ve learnt about Age of Wonders: Planetfall seem very promissing. It seems to be a unique take on the Age of Wonders 4X formula. The devs, Triumph Studios, are doing some neat things with colony management, and the factions seem quite different and original… at least in terms of their abilities and units.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall is slated for release in 2019. We don’ have a more specific date than that. Hopefully we’ll get a release date by the end of the year.
