AGE OF FEAR: THE FREE WORLD!!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/882410

Hi all,

We're excited to announce that this 100% free-to-play installment in the AOF series is nearly ready for release - Age of Fear: The Free World!

In this game, the player chooses a hero from one of three main factions: the Human Kingdom, the Greenskins Horde or the Undead Legion. Your mission? Explore and battle around a sandbox-type world, gathering enough resources to build a legendary base!

AOF: The Free World is a free-to-play introduction to the main Age of Fear games where new players can get a taste of the turn-based tactics and fantasy flavour of the series. This is a proper standalone experience rather than a cut-down demo version, and if you like what AOF: The Free World has to offer, there's a lot more where that came from in the story-driven campaigns of the main series!

Also, AOF: The Free World has served as the inspiration and testing ground for a brand new feature - Global Events! These occur at the world map and present players with intriguing choices and scenarios à la Battle Brothers, everything from archery contests to catastrophic weather to adventures in Trollish cooking. While currently exclusive to AOF: The Free World, Global Events will soon be backported to the main AOF games.

Thanks for your interest in Age of Fear: The Free World!

ON THE WOLF TRAIL

Hi all,

I would like to present a great masterpiece of Hottomo - "On the Wolf Trail":

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1516933843

This mod contains a human-based campaign telling a story about Gordic - commander of Royal Watchers.

Mod features an alternative evolutions tree where you can select unit's specialization (e.g. Militia/Watchman/Sergeant).

From scripting perspective, the mod is very solid and well tested. Thank you very much for your hard work, Hottomo!

All of best,
Les & AOF Team

“A pretty good trip down the road of nostalgia for those who miss the turn-based era and are looking for a new trip down memory lane.”
Dpad Joy

“The AI is strong, able to cope with the multitude of unit abilities and provide a competent opponent. [...] The long campaigns and huge variety of units and abilities do provide value in this new edition.”
