Default New Patch For Dominions 3: The Awakening!

News Release For Immediate Release


New Patch For Dominions 3: The Awakening!
Latest Patch Sure To Please Mac Users!


Hampstead, NC, 31 January 2007

Illwinter Game Design and Shrapnel Games would like to announce that there is now a
new patch available for the critically acclaimed fantasy strategy title, Dominions 3: The
Awakening. The patch brings the retail version of the game up to 3.06 and is available
for all operating systems that Dominions 3 is playable on.

While the version 3.06 patch includes a number of bug fixes and enhancements for mod
improvements, the most exciting aspect of the patch applies to Mac gamers. There is
now a universal binary available for Mac players! Not being Mac users ourselves the first
thought was that it had something to do with Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude Van
Damme, but then we realized that's Universal Soldier, not universal binary! Apparently
the universal binary will allow better performance for Intel-based Macs.

The complete list of changes found in the patch can be found on the download page, and
is also found below:

* Universal binary for Mac OS X.
* Fixed some typos.
* New spell for Man.
* Name fixes for late era T'ien Chi.
* Name fix for some Abysian humanbreds.
* Darkness did not work properly regarding demons.
* Modding: new commands: #domsummon, #domsummon2, #domsummon20.
* Modding: new commands: #summon1, #summon5, #makemonster1-5.
* Modding: #copy renamed to #copyspell in manual as well.
* --noscoregraphs works.
* Dreams of R'lyeh could hang the game if cast upon a province with only mindless
commanders.
* Hippocampoi Fields summoned a human soldier who immediately drowned, fixed so
it summons a hippocamus instead.
* Miasma dominion affected C'tis income badly as well.
* Modding manual updated.
* Modding: Resistances can be modded to exceed 100%.
* Modding: can disable nation with #era 0.
* Modding: new commands: #seduce, #succubus, #charge.
* --mapsbcol didn't work. (FIXED)
* Defense commanders didn't receive mirror image properly. (FIXED)
* Dragon mastery ability could disappear unexpectedly. (FIXED)

The version 3.06 patch for Windows, Mac, and Linux may be downloaded directly from:

Dominions 3: The Awakening is the third game of fantasy religious conflict from
Swedish developer Illwinter Game Design. Turn-based in nature, and aimed at providing
strategy gamers with an engrossing multiplayer experience of up to twenty-one players
(though perfectly suited for the solo gamer), Dominions 3: The Awakening has been the
talk of critics and gamers since its release, from being an Editor's Choice at Computer
Games Magazine to CYBERSTRATEGE magazine's strategy game of 2006, along with a
legion of other accolades.

Packed with more strategy and gameplay than a dozen mainstream games, Dominions 3:
The Awakening is the perfect example of eclectic independent gaming at its finest. The
base game includes hundreds upon hundreds of unique combat units, spells, and magical
artifacts, with modders pushing the envelope every day with even more content.
Shipping with a random map generator, no two games ever have to be the same.

Of course a game this big deserves a manual that does it justice, and the Dominions 3:
The Awakening manual is the real deal. Spiral-bound with a page count over 300 pages,
this is what a manual should look like.

Dominions 3: The Awakening is available for only $54.95 for Windows, Mac, and Linux
operating systems. That's right, for $54.95 you get:

* 1500+ combat units, 600+ spells, and 300+ magic items.

* Fifty+ playable nations, three eras, up to twenty-one players (human or AI).

* Random map generator.

* Huge paper manual!

* Easy mod-making.

* Unlimited gameplay!

Cheaper than a typical date, weekend trip, or traffic ticket, Dominions 3: The Awakening
will also last longer and provide you with much fonder memories. Be sure to stop by the
official Shrapnel Games store, the Gamers Front
(www.gamersfront.com/xcart/home.php), to order your copy today!

More information on this great game, or any of our other fine titles, may be found at
www.shrapnelgames.com. Our titles are wide-ranging and sure to please the
discriminating gamer tired of the same old crap filling up the local retail chains.
