Deluxe Edition - Dragon’s Throne Scenario
An extra large standalone scenario. Legends tell of dragons who ruled the fabled Sea of Flames at the dawn of time. However, no one has seen a True Dragon in living memory. The Isles are still loaded with treasure and have become popular with adventures, merchants, scoundrels and sightseers. Now eight rival lords have found a mysterious dragon’s egg, and each sees it as proof of their claim to the Dragon’s Throne. The sages warn they risk unleashing the wrath of the Dragons, but the Lords pay no heed as they prepare for war. You can play the Dragon’s Throne versus AI opponents or in multiplayer with up to 8 players.

Deluxe Edition - Age of Wonders III: Original Soundtrack
The two hour Age of Wonders III Original Soundtrack is composed by maestro Michiel van den Bos, of Unreal, Deus Ex, Overlord, and Age of Wonders 1 fame. The OST features thirty one crisp, high quality FLAC and 320kbs MP3 tracks from Age of Wonders III and five exclusive bonus tracks. To top it all off, the OST includes liner notes by the composer (English only) and jewel case CD inlay jpg files. Be enchanted!

Online access key is OK

Posted on 2014-04-07 17:08:13 byMillian's avatarMillian:

I think the game is stellar and I am looking forward to additional content and patches. I don't get the whining about an online key though. Gating official servers helps keep operating costs manageable and the community limited to paying customers. I see no problem with that. The game has zero copy protection, so it's hardly a big deal. Online access, rather, is an added bonus. The game works just fine in offline mode.

Great game but DRM!

Posted on 2014-04-07 11:32:38 byDice5's avatarDice5:

A Key for online access? No. This must be stopped right here and not allowed to manifest itself into more sophisticated and threatening forms of DRM. GOG is our go-to for DRM-FREE gaming and we would like it to remain so. As much as it is understandable for the good people at GOG wanting to expand their business and increase profits, this goes against the very nature of this more I don't want to bash the game, for it is an excellent work of the industry, however, I think you should not purchase it on this platform.

Excellent Game

The game is one of the better turn-based strategy games out there. Fans have been waiting a long time for this game and it does not disappoint.
I'm sorry to see GoG members give the game 1 star reviews, just because its online function requires a key. You can just use Hamachi or another service to avoid the key. This way they can offer the game on GoG while still making sure thatread more some people actually pay for it. Otherwise it could possibly only end up as a top torrent somewhere.
