The World War update also presents the ability to build a new Command Post defensive structure and adds the War Base and Map Editor that players can use to customize their bases to their liking.
"DomiNations was built for strategy gamers by strategy gamers, and we're excited to launch our number one player-requested feature: World War," Big Huge Games CEO Tim Train said in a statement. "World War adds a brand new layer of strategy that rewards teamwork, creative base building, and clever approaches to battles. We're looking forward to the global conflagration!"
Here's some further details on how the multi-day World War events will play out:
"Once initiated, the World War is split into two distinct phases with the first day dedicated to planning and the second day focused on all-out global warfare. On planning day, Alliance members can collaborate and conspire by scouting enemy bases, readying their defenses and donating troops to one another.
"Equipped with a new Command Post structure which unleashes civilization-specific defenders, players can use the War Base and Map Editor to deploy strategically configured strongholds built for battle onto the world map. On battle day, each Alliance member can attack twice where they can win up to five stars per base destroyed. The Alliance who scores the most stars at the end wins the war. Each member of the World War who makes a successful attack will earn bonus loot, while the winning side will take home the lion’s share."
