Default Dominions 3 Version 3.04 Now Available!

News Release For Immediate Release


Dominions 3 Version 3.04 Now Available!
New Patch For Hit Fantasy Strategy Title!


Hampstead, NC, 07 December 2006

With Grip of Winter starting to be cast at maximum efficiency around the northern
hemisphere there's no better time to curl up at your computer with a nice mug of spiced
cider and a copy of Dominions 3: The Awakening. You'll of course want Dominions 3
to be running at its peak funability, and with that in mind Illwinter Game Design has
released a new patch.

The latest Dominions 3: The Awakening patch brings the retail game up to version 3.04
and corrects a number of issues and adds several new items. A sampling of the patch
includes such highlight as:

** You want more? You got it! A brand new nation!!

** Even more! New map by Jason Lutes added.

** Memory overwrite bug fixed.

** Demons can see in the dark. No more bumping into furniture on the way to the
bathroom!

** Modding manual updated.

** Various typos fixed.

** Lots more!

The full listing of changes, along with the version 3.04 patch, can be found at:

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

Dominions 3: The Awakening is a turn-based fantasy strategy title available for the PC,
Mac, and Linux operating systems. Content rich (which may very well be an
understatement), Dominions 3 features hundreds upon hundreds of unique units, spells,
and magic items, along with near infinite replayability. Supporting up to twenty-one
players in a single game (either human or AI), a multiplayer Dominions 3 game is a thing
of beauty. A random map creator and extensive mod-making support makes Dominions
3 a game that keeps on giving well past the expiration date of other games.

Dominions 3: The Awakening was the best selling pre-order in Shrapnel Games' history,
and the critics are in agreement with the fans, this is a must own game! The January
issue of Computer Games magazine scored Dominions 3 a 4.5 out of 5, and awarded it
their Editor's Choice award. James Allen's Out of Eight PC Game Reviews gave the
game a perfect score (that would be eight, get the title of the site now?). A few choice
quotes from James' review:

"For gamers who enjoy deep, strategic gameplay, Dominions 3 is really sweet. Sheer
complexity does not always translate into a good game, but all of the spells, units, and
other options definitely works towards Dominions 3's benefit. And if all the default
content isn't enough, the game includes extensive support for mods as well. This game is
great because, unlike most strategy games, it supports almost an infinite number of viable
strategies for victory..Plus, Dominions 3 rewards overall strategy instead of being able
to issue specific commands during battles and quickly activate special skills; we'll leave
that juvenile reflex stuff for the mindless console games."

Dominions 3: The Awakening can be ordered directly from Shrapnel Games for only
$54.95. It comes as a physical CD (only, no download option available) with all three
binaries and includes a spiral-bound tome of a manual, with a staggering 300 pages of
actually useful information written by Bruce Geryk, veteran computer game journalist.
Shipping is fast, and worldwide. It should also be noted that Dominions 3 makes the
perfect Christmas gift!
