Greetings Leaders,

Welcome to The Road Ahead, a look ahead at some of the exciting things we’re working on. We have a very busy year planned for DomiNations, and we want to take this opportunity to give you a glimpse of what’s coming in the second half of 2023!

Please keep in mind that things in development are subject to change, and we will do our best to keep you updated as our Roadmap adapts.

We plan to keep these updates coming, with another Road Ahead update planned for the Fall.

Summer For the Ages[]

Our long-running Summer for the Ages event returns this July, which will feature a Drone Age level-up event for the first time. We’re also increasing discounts across the earliest ages to help newer players progress as the summer battles heat up!

Along with the Summer for the Ages event flow that you’re familiar with, here are some of the new additions and changes we will be implementing during Summer for the Ages!

  • All 5m and 30m speedups will be removed from Event Pass reward tracks and replaced with 1h speedups.
  • Legendary Artifacts will be available in special Event Passes, including one in the free reward track this July.
  • Group Leaderboards are being reintroduced to select Weekly Episodes in a more competitive fashion; speedups no longer grant exp, and bonus Stars are now awarded to all players equally if they purchased the event or not.
  • Global Leaderboards will also return to select Episode and Season Passes.
  • New NTG Chests in Marco Polo will feature greater quantities of NTGs on a more consistent basis.
  • Our Council Recruitment offerings are being upgraded in Quest Event rewards. Free Recruitments will be upgraded to Premium Recruitments in Episode Quest rewards. Note: This will not initially apply to the Council Daily Claim but will come in a future release.

Quality of Life[]

One key focus over the next few months of releases will be to include quality-of-life (QOL) improvements to DomiNations geared towards creating a better in-game experience for all of our players. We aim to include a steady rollout of QOL improvements in most of our upcoming releases for 2023.

Here are a few of the additions we’re currently working to implement:

  • Increasing Artifact Storage
  • Earlier access to Legendary Artifact Exhibition Slots
  • Oil Rebalance for Enlightenment through Global Age
  • Increasing the “Are you still there” Timer length to reduce disruption while playing
  • Surfacing improvements to troop Donations
  • Missile Silos and Bunkers will no longer take oil to activate
  • Introducing new backend tools to improve how we monitor our matchmaking queues for potential issues.

In addition to the above, we have a list of other QOL items to add to our roadmap, but we want to hear from you first! What Quality of Life updates would you like to see? Let us know in the comments.

World War[]

We are also committed to addressing many of the outstanding issues with World War. While we are currently in the preliminary stages of these crucial improvements, our dedicated team of Artists, Designers, and Engineers are actively working on mapping out options to improve the quality of matches, address bug fixes, and implement a new Glory Tiering system. These projects are in various states of readiness ranging from active development to undergoing internal review.

Automation Age[]

It has been just over half a year since the release of the Drone Command building to Drone Age, and many of our Drone Age players are asking when they can expect to enter the next Age of DomiNations. We’re excited to announce that our next Age, The Automation Age, is targeting a release later this year, bringing new upgrades and strategies along with it. For our Drone Age players, we still have additional building upgrades coming. Our most recent set of upgrades were released with 11.10, with another set of upgrades planned for later this year.

In addition to the above, we will continue to constantly improve the performance, stability, and security of your DomiNations experience.

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek at The Road Ahead for DomiNations. There’s plenty more to talk about, and we look forward to sharing more with you as we dive further into the development of these and other features throughout the year!
