Triumph Studios launched the level editor for Age of Wonders III worldwide earlier this week and the launch was pretty successful. The editor allows players to create their own single player and multi-player scenarios as well as their own heroes and campaigns complete with story cut-scenes using their own art assets and voiceovers. Pretty powerful stuff. Imagine something like that in a WWE game, using your own voiceovers to create your own promos...but I'm getting off track.
Triumph Studios has released a video that goes into detail about the video editor and give you an idea about how it works. If you're into the Age of Wonders series, this definitely looks like it would be fun to play around with.
