Triumph Studios will be releasing the first patch/update for the just-released Age of Wonders III "in the coming days", and they outline what'll most likely be in it. Higher resolutions for one with boxes and blurriness gone.
The team will adjust AI difficulty, and will introduce a quick save option - a must for any PC game. Triumph promises they've "many other updates and fixes" brewing in their alchemy lab.
They pledge support for Age of Wonders III "for a long period of time," having spent the past 39 months on it. DLC and add-ons are in the future with new features.
"The team is very happy and humbled with the overall reception so far: reviews, sales, but most importantly we’re happy with overall fan reaction. But of course we can always do better. We’ve spent 39 months developing Age of Wonders III, and we’re planning on supporting the game for a long period of time. We’ll release patches, free new features and dlc/expansion packs and we’re looking forward to implementing lots of feedback from the community," said Triumph's Lennart Sas.
