The patch is available for immediate download from publisher Shrapnel Games. Windows, Mac, and Linux, whatever you’re playing Dominions 3 on is covered. Go forth and patch! You’ll find the patch here.

In a world in which games often are assembled by committee, vomited out without souls, and forgotten soon thereafter the genuine love behind Dominions 3: The Awakening hopefully shines through for all to see. This is a game created by a small team, forged in their beliefs, and supported years later because of that belief. We think that’s special, and looking at the vast Dominions community, you guys and gals probably think so too.

Here at Shrapnel Games we want to use the release of this latest patch as an opportunity to invite even more players into the fold. And so we’re kicking off a very special Dominions 3: The Awakening sale that will run through July 4th.

From now until July 4th the download version (and only the download version) of Dominions 3: The Awakening is on sale for only $39.95. That’s $15.00 off its normal retail price, and the absolutely lowest price we’ve ever offered. This is a unique discount that may never be repeated again, so if you’ve been on the fence now is the time to make your decision!

Want to get your friends into the game? Tell them about the sale. Want to make new friends? Tell strangers about the sale and unleash the full power of Dominions 3 upon the world. Save humanity from the eldritch horrors that lurk beyond the veil? You got it, tell them about the sale.

Again, the sale only lasts until July 4th and won’t be repeated again, so don’t wait to take advantage of this very special discount! You can read more about the game, download a demo, and order it by visiting its official product page.

Dominions 3: The Awakening is the multi-award winning turn-based fantasy strategy game made just the way they used to make games once upon a time. Developed by the mad Swedes of Illwinter Game Design and published by Shrapnel Games, we dare you to find a similar game as rich with content and gameplay possibilities as Dominions 3: The Awakening. From official content to the numerous mods available, Dominions 3 is an embarrassment of riches. Combined with the ability to support up to twenty-one players in a multiplayer match and Dominions 3: The Awakening is truly the last game anyone ever needs.
