    Conquest of Elysium 3 - Exploration Team

    Hi all,

    As someone kindly pointed out, Conquest of Elysium 3 is going to be around very, very soon. I knew it was planned, I knew Illwinter (they of Dominions-fame) were working on a new title, but I didn't expect it to be in February already!

    Now, I don't really have time for fast-paced pbems. And I don't even know if a Pbem-option will be included (but I'd be surprised if not!), but I've been waiting years for a new game of Illwinter - as someone who actually bought a copy of Dominions 1 back in the day (the second shareware-title I EVER purchased), this is a must-buy and must-play, even if I have to install it on every machine I am usually working on.

    I would love to start exploring CoE3 with allies, enemies, friends and villains. And as there is a strong Dom3-community here on the RPS shores, I am certain that some of you might be willing to venture forth into an unexplored new land, for the first fumbling steps of casting fireballs into our own faces by clicking the wrong buttons.


    Right?


    So, who's in? We'll sort out the details later.

    There are threads around on Shrapnel
    http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=47712
    and on Desura (where you can pre-order the game for $25)
    http://www.desura.com/games/conquest-of-elysium-3
    which talk about the game in great detail. Its not a hidden beta-testing (no NDA) so any question can be answered. There are also screenshots and a video available. And already two AARs by beta testers.

    So far it looks like there will be no PbEM support. This is a much lighter game than Dominions 3. There is much less micromanagement and the turns go much quicker. I think it will be a favorite blitz style game for IRC channels or Chat rooms. It is also much more fun in Solo play than Dom3.

    I'd very much like to be in. If I had a heck of a lot more time than I do to game, I'm sure I'd be an avid Dom3 player. The current lack of PBEM with COE 3 is regrettable, but I'd sure like to join in some regular play-sessions.

    A very interesting game, and there's a lot of characters that you can choose from. If I remember it correctly, it has 17 different characters. However, the 10% discount on Steam was until the 31st of October only. Does anyone know how much Conquest of Elysium 3 currently costs?
