Age of Wonders 4 Eldritch Realms launches to the world

The latest expansion to Age of Wonders 4 – the intricate real-time strategy title released on Xbox in May 2023 – goes by the name of Eldritch Realms. With new maps, mounts, traits, rulers and more, this aims to properly flesh out your AOW 4 experience, and will have you terrifying your adversaries as the Eldritch Sovereign.

The Umbral Abyss

Now available on Xbox, PlayStation and PC, Age of Wonders 4: Eldritch Realms throws us into a new location known as the Umbral Abyss.

This mystical realm has corrupted the Eldritch Sovereigns that you will be playing as in this expansion, with the presence of a new event – the Cosmic Happenings – in which you can show off your new Eldritch powers! In addition to this, you’ll be able to use two new Forms, such as a faction of Insects, or indeed the iconic Age of Wonders Syrons.

Add to this a range of new cosmetics, mounts and much more to enjoy, but that’s not all! Regardless of if you decide to purchase Age of Wonders 4 – Eldritch Realms, all AOW 4 players will gain access to the free Mystic Update, including a rework of the Mystic Culture.

Key Features

  • New Map Layer – The Umbral Abyss: New tactical combat maps, unique locations to explore, and new independent factions of Umbral dwellers wait for players who can withstand the hazardous environs!
  • New Ruler Type: Ancient beings of terrible power, the Eldritch Sovereigns have been corrupted by the Umbral Abyss and possess a unique Thrall spell casting mechanic. Choose your path as an Eldritch Sovereign ruler and decide between Dominating your foes, Manipulating the flesh or Wild, chaotic magic.
  • 3 New Tomes: Tighten your grasp with the Tome of the Tentacle, turn your enemies’ strength to weakness with the Tome of Corruption, or drive back the darkness using the Tome of Cleansing Flame.
  • New Event System: Mini-crises threaten all rulers at once in the Cosmic Happenings, a series of events with unique tactical maps, units, and mechanics – and powerful rewards!
  • 2 New Forms: Swarm into battle as a faction of Insects, or lead the return of the Syrons from Age of Wonders’ past!
  • 2 New Story Realms: Return to Athla and come to its defense in epic clashes that will determine the fate of the world.
  • So Much More: 2 new mounts, 3 new Realm traits, 2 new Realm templates, 5 new premade rulers, 6 new music tracks, and a gloomy, unsettling new interface skin all await you in the Eldritch Realms!

I'm an avid gamer who will play pretty much anything... but stick an open world or adventure game in front of me and I'm more than happy.
