Stand Alone Scenarios and Random Maps can be played with up to 8 players which can be AI or Human Players. Theoretically you could setup a game with 7 human players VS 1 AI (though this would be unfair for the AI). Because of this we've listed co-op as 4 (for balance). You can play coop together on one machine in Hotseat or in online sessions with fixed teams. This is the local co-op aspect. Note The campaign is single player only.
Age of Wonders III is a fantasy turn based strategy game where you lead armies against opposition. Your wizard can hire heroes or wade into battle themselves. Casting spells can cause damage to opponents, empower your own units, summon magical beings, or even reshape the campaign map.More Info @ PCGamingWiki
