Dominions 3 Patch Now Available!

Multitude Of Bug Fixes and Enhancements!

For Immediate Release

Hampstead, NC, 03 November 2006

Illwinter Game Design has just completed a patch for their fantasy strategy game, Dominions 3: The Awakening, which is now available for all Dominions compatible operating systems through the Shrapnel Games website. The patch, which brings the game up to version 3.01, may be downloaded from:

www.shrapnelgames.com/Illwinter/Dom3/6.htm

The patch corrects several minor bugs that unfortunately managed to slip past pre-production testing, but more importantly tweaks several aspects of the game and enhances the overall experience. The tweaks are numerous, and a complete listing of changes may be found at the above link.

Dominions 3: The Awakening is the third installment of the insanely popular Dominions series. Developed by a team of two, Johan Karlsson and Kristoffer Osterman, the game is a strategic tour-de-force of limitless gameplay possibilities. A fantasy title of religion, warfare, and might making right, with support for up to twenty-one players, the number of possible variables to create a game is staggering. Featuring fifty nations, three magical eras, thousands of units, spells, and items, and a random map creator, one could experiment with all the various combinations from now until the grave. Factor in the vibrant community support, with their legion of mods, and you have a game that could be played well beyond the grave. If you've always worried that the afterlife would be one dull eternity, just make sure you bring along a copy of Dominions 3. After an eon or two you may end up scratching the surface.

While still early in the release Dominions 3 has been both selling like mad and being talked about all over the world. From the official Sci Fi channel magazine, to Lloyd Case's podcast, to Finnish, French, and American magazines, Dominions 3 is being heralded as a superior example of strategy gaming. If you have not experienced Dominions yet be sure to grab the demo, available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, located on the same page as the patch link.

Dominions 3: The Awakening may be ordered through the Shrapnel Games e-store, the Gamers Front, for only $54.95. All three binaries ship on one CD, and the game comes with a spiral-bound, in-depth 300 page manual written by noted writer Bruce Geryk.
