Edi, lord of all things dominions, pointed out that illwinter has made the announcement that Dominions4 is almost certainly going to become a reality!

you can go to illwinter.com to confirm this, though the official post will not tell you much more than this.  still, something fun to look forward to! :D

I soooo nearly posted a YouTube from "Deliverance" here, but good taste won out....

Damn, but I'm disappointed in myself!

The features list makes me laugh and laugh and laugh for personal reasons.  8)
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

An august release date really surprised me. I was even prepared for a 2014 release. There seems to be lots of small usability tweaks which is pretty much exactly what I want from a sequel at this point.

August!  Wow.  I was just thinking, this morning, that I don't care how long it will take to arrive because I've only just got into Dom3 and it will serve for years.

Not sure I'll even be in a position to buy it in August.  If anyone else is in the same boat, we'll have to have Dom3 and Dom4 games running concurrently.

I hear you Huw.  I would say im maybe half way to understanding Dom3, so I have mixed feelings about Dom4

This is great news.  I now can strongly resist the call for Dominions 3 and wait for #4.   ;D

Unless pretty much everyone here jumps on 4 straight away, I'll be in no hurry to upgrade at all.  It's a guaranteed buy at some point of course, but I'm perfectly happy with 3 at the moment. :)

I'm quite sure once Dom 4 releases Dom 3 will be pretty much obsolete. The UI improvements alone make switching over a no-brainer.

I think, seeing the features list, that going to Dom 4 will be an instant upgrade for many.
I am looking forward to it!

Holy Pretender! Teamplay with One Pretender and other players playing as your Disciples?!!

  Jason, wanna team up in a game when it gets released?? Awesomeness!
Magic upped to over 800 spells... 75 nations over 3 era's.... *drool*
This will be even more of a life's work to get to know the nitty gritty about the game!

Oh and Huw, from looking at the screenies. It just seems an expanded and upgraded Dom 3. Not an entirely different game. So you're just going to have to upgrade once it hits the streets, as are you, Parone! ;)
It will be the new cool kid on the block everyone likes. But instead of a toddler he's now in puberty.

I paid $70 for Dom2 (which was in effect an upgraded version of Dom1), and I paid $70 for Dom3 (which was in effect an upgraded version of Dom2).

I have no doubt I'll end up buying Dom4, but probably not out of the gate.
