We were proud to continue our long partnership with Paradox Interactive to produce the global pre-order and launch campaign material for Age of Wonders 4. Just like the game, this campaign was epic in scale. By the time our team had finished we had created over 300 individual assets, reaching millions of players globally in just about every online format you can imagine.

Age of Wonders 4 is the latest edition of the long running 4X strategy series. The game saw the franchise return to its fantasy origins - following Age of Wonders: Planetfall’s sci-fi setting - for the first time since 2014. Anticipation from the fans was huge and it was vital that our work fuelled their passion rather than dampen it - no one wants to see fans disappointed!
This was a varied campaign that would utilise both our video editing and static image design skills. With a huge number of assets required we rolled up our sleeves and got cracking.
This was an artworking job akin to leading your own empire: 30 different ratios and every unit had to look consistently great wherever they appeared - streaming platforms, websites, apps, the lot. Our team worked diligently to make sure that each unit respected safe zones and met IAB (Interactive Advertising Bureau) standards.
Age of Wonders was hitting consoles for just the second time and we needed to grab those players by their cloaks and whisk them off to a magical realm. Our creative units appeared on the Xbox and PlayStation stores as well as the home screens of both consoles. We even localised the units for use in Germany. Exzellent!
