Age of Wonders: Planetfall Vanguard Faction Spotlight Trailer. Lasers, Mechs & a Propensity for Things That Go Kaboom!

Age of Wonders: Planetfall Vanguard Faction Spotlight Trailer. Lasers, Mechs & a Propensity for Things That Go Kaboom!

Paradox Interactive has published a brand new video that gives an overview of the Vanguard faction in Age of Wonders: Planetfall. They are a human faction trying to reclaim the hostile world for the glory of the Star Union.

The world of Planetfall has faced a galactic scale cataclysm and the Star Union is an empire no more. It is up to you to reclaim the planet and bring back the might of the Star Union empire.

If you like big stomping mechs, explosions and laser that go pew-pew, these guys are the faction for you. But they aren’t just all-out offence.

The Vanguard can use doctrines that either make influencing other factions easier or scare them with might. It’s not all about the guns but how you deal with the rest of Planetfall’s factions on the diplomatic front.

It seems like the Vanguard are the balanced faction. Not weak with a good arsenal of offensive units and powerful doctrines that help with diplomacy. I also like the fact that garrisons in colonies can help with food production.

That’s a nice touch considering most 4X games just make armies useless during peace time. If you haven’t check it out yet, I shared the first gameplay video of Age of Wonders: Planetfall here.

No specific release date has been announced other than a 2019 release. Are you looking forward to it? Do you normally play a human faction the first time you play a 4X game? I tend to go with human factions most of the time. It’s easier for me to relate to them.
