Nexon and Big Huge Games announced the next major content expansion for DomiNations, Space Age, as the popular mobile strategy game ramps up to celebrate its fourth anniversary. Throughout the past four years in DomiNations, players have guided 50 million civilizations on a historic journey through the ages of humanity, striving to raise their budding nations up from the huts and spear-wielding warriors in the Stone Age to the advanced cities and devastating weapons of the Cold War era. On March 19, 2019, players will be able to turn their eyes to the heavens and advance to the Space Age, where they can research new technologies, construct powerful new buildings and troops, and take on greater challenges in events that recognize great moments in world history.
In honor of the historical Space Age, the update adds new leader Sally Ride, NASA astronaut and first American woman to go into space, as well as Space Shuttle and SETI Wonders to bolster players’ technology and civilizations. Additionally, events surrounding the Space Age launch celebrate pioneers like Yuri Gagarin, the first human to travel to space, as well as events and milestones of humanity’s exciting leap into space such as Sputnik, the Moon Landing, and Apollo 13. The events will offer players unique rewards as they prepare to propel their nations towards the stars.
Big Huge Games and Nexon will be offering a first look at all of the new content, features, and upgrades available in the new age via live stream on Twitch and Facebook on March 14 with the recording posted on the DomiNations YouTube channel the following day.
“Over the last four years, DomiNations has quite literally evolved through the ages with tons of new content, new modes, and regular events that give players more opportunities to collaborate with and compete against one another,” said Tim Train, CEO of Big Huge Games. “The introduction of Space Age marks the true beginning of the modern era in DomiNations, giving players access to advanced technologies and weapons to turn their nations into true global superpowers.”
Dominations Four Year Anniversary kicks off in mid-April and will last for two celebratory weeks of giveaways, rewards, and sales along with the healthy dose of active fun they have come to expect from the long running live service. Big Huge Games has scheduled surprise activities and events to challenge players to evolve their strategies and encourage the community, who have now spent over 6,000 cumulative years (longer than all of recorded human history) attacking their enemies in PvP battles, to engage with and against each other in new and exciting ways.
In DomiNations, players choose between one of eight nations to lead as they research technologies, gather resources and build hundreds of unique structures, weapons and technologies, all while defending themselves from other players and attacking those that get in their way. Alliances can be forged and multiplayer conquests can be as massive as World War conflicts, where 50 vs. 50 players battle for control of the world.
