Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization, developed by Czech Games Edition for most digital platforms, is widely considered to be one of the best digital board game app out there. I have to say it’s one of my favourites as it’s almost flawless (yes, my review of it is, oh, two years or so late. So sue me).
CGE is not sitting on their laurels, though.
News arrived this week (Editor – Late to the party again, eh?) that the expansion to this wonderful game, Through the Ages: New Leaders & Wonders, would be released on digital platforms and actually before the tabletop version!
According to CGE, the digital release of the expansion will hit all platforms (Google, iOS, and Steam) on September 12 with the price of $4.99 US (what, no Steam increase? That’s cool).
Tabletop gamers shouldn’t worry, though, as it will be released for that version a couple of months later for the nice price of $24.95.
This expansion is going to include a bunch of (Editor – Duh) new leaders and wonders that will give players a lot more options.
Stonehenge (taken from the trailer, posted below), for example, is a new wonder that will give you science equal to the cost for each level of it that you build. That is seriously cool!
There’s also going to be a bunch of new military cards that you can seed into the Event deck (or aggressions you can inflict on your opponents), so the possibilities will be endless!
Ok, not endless, but pretty damned variable!
Not much else has been said about it, but here’s the trailer. It looks very cool and will be a first day digital purchase for me.
Join me and try to build your civilization up enough to master all others in this great game.
And maybe you could hit me up for a game?
The wait for September just got longer…
