We are celebrating DomiNations 7th year, and we’re very excited to say the time has finally arrived to introduce our 16th Age, The Drone Age. You’ve waged battle alongside us for seven years through the ages, and for players who have progressed through the Information Age, a new set of upgrades await! The Drone Age will make its way to your devices in our next DomiNations 11.0 Release. This update includes new art upgrades to the units, buildings, and mercenaries, but that’s not all that is coming your way for Drone Age. We also have a new building, The Drone Factory, which will be released later this summer!
We’ll start by covering the upgrades available on day one. Once you reach XP level 333 you can upgrade your Town Center to Drone Age, unlocking all of the upgrades listed below. We know many of you are excited to start your planning phase, so here's the upgrade breakdown:
|Airstrip||Anti Tank Gun|
|Mercenary Camp||Machine Gun|
|Oil Well||Armored Ambush Trap|
|Alliance Gate||GCI Radar|
The following troops will also receive additional levels.
|Barrack Troops||Factory Troops||Airstrip|
|Spearhead Infantry||Spearhead Machine Gun||Spearhead Fighter Mk6|
|Spearhead Rifleman||Spearhead Infiltrator||Spearhead Bomber Mk 6|
|MBT Mk6||Heavy Tank Mk.14||Spearhead Transport Mk 6|
|Spearhead Patrol Raider||Spearhead RPG||Spearhead Airborne Infantry|
|Spearhead Supply Vehicle||Armored Car Mk.12||Spearhead Recon Mk6|
|Spearhead Combat Engineer||APC Mk.11|
|Spearhead Artillery||Spearhead Tactical Helicopter|
|Spearhead Field Mortar||MRL Mk.9|
|Spearhead Attack Helicopter|
|Heavy Assault Vehicle Mk.4|
So those are the units you can plan around to level up, but what about additional builds? Upon reaching Drone Age, players can build 1 extra unit for the S.A.M. Battery, the GCI Radar, the Signal Flare, Bunker, and seven extra walls.
A level upgrade to the Mercenary Camp means there are new arrivals, the United Nations Peacekeeper and the Yatagan Tank. The United Nations Peacekeeper is a ranged infantry unit, while the Yatagan Tank is part of the Heavy Cavalry.
New Building - Drone Factory (working title)
While upgrades are expected with the arrival of a new age, we still have one more thing up our sleeve! Our team has been working hard on a new building called the Drone Factory which will introduce Offensive and Defensive Drones to DomiNations. These Drones will be useable in War and Multiplayer and will present Drone Age players with new strategic opportunities on both offense and defense. We’ve seen a few discussions online about Drones and can confirm that how these will be used in battle are as a new addition to gameplay and not connected to the Airstrip Recon plane upgrade.
The Drone Factory will not be available at launch but work is underway and we’re expecting it to launch later this summer. There’s plenty to talk about here, and we can’t wait to dive in and share all of the details. We know you have plenty of questions about what to expect once the Drone Factory releases, so be on the lookout for a future blog as we get closer to release!
