Age of Empires IV will see veteran empire builders return to the Medieval period once seen in Age of Empires II.

Here’s everything we know about Age of Empires IV:

Release Date

There are plenty of details that have been released about Age of Empires IV, however, the release date is currently still unannounced. It’s a bit strange that with all the XO19 news, the launch date is still a mystery. At launch, however, the game will be available for purchase on PC and Xbox consoles.

Trailer

The trailer sets the tone nicely for the sequel, utilizing a combination of beautiful concept art from previous titles in the series and voiceover, but do not expect to learn much about the gameplay from it.

Gameplay

Relic Entertainment and Microsoft haven’t shown us much about the gameplay of Age of Empires IV. Putting together Relic’s recent work and given the foundations of the previous games in the series, we get a vague idea of what to expect.

If you are a newcomer to the franchise, here’s what Age of Empires is all about. You start the game by picking a historical nation or civilization and guide them to prosperity through one of four victory conditions: score, domination, building a world wonder, or uncovering relics from around the map and returning them to your base. All this plays out in real-time as you manage your civilization, gather resources, build new structures and units, research new technology, and battle the other nations that you share the map with.

As Creative Director Adam Isgreen says “Because I’m so adamant about teaching”, new players needn’t worry. The game will come with tutorials that will guide serious newcomers through the campaign and react when a player is not doing something they should be doing.

Almost certainly, Relic Amusement could add new interactivity highlights like Hero units and skill trees, particularly considering the achievement that comparable frameworks have had in the new Total War: Warhammer series. One thing has been affirmed, however, Age of Empires 4 will have game modes, another approach to incorporate arrangement newcomers and veterans of the series. Isgreen talks about choice and not having to “commit to a two-hour game, but you can if you want,” keeping in mind modern sensibilities.

Civilizations

Isgreen has stated that Age of Empires 4 will have fewer than the 13 civilizations that we see in AoE II as they’re aiming for uniqueness over quantity.

Two civilizations have been confirmed for Age of Empires IV, which are the English and the Mongols. Isgreen comments that there is a “wide spectrum of civilizations that go from very understandable if you’ve played a previous Age game, to ‘you need to learn a lot to really play these ones well’”.

Isgreen also speaks about the Age of Empires 4 time period – he says “So we start a little bit earlier than Age II’s time and we go a little bit further, kind of bumping up against the early Renaissance,”.

On the off chance that Age of Empires 4 begins before and ends later than Age of Empires 2, the time span is the Middle Ages and ought to incorporate the Dark, Feudal, Medieval, and Imperial Ages, however, could likewise incorporate events as far back as Rome’s decline, adventure past the Renaissance era to the Age of Discovery. Even though Age of Empires 2 Imperial Age incorporates components of the early Renaissance, for example, gunpowder units and technologies, the trailer looks to be taking place in the High Middle Ages.

So get ready to dive into the nation-conquering action of Age of Empires IV sometime early in 2021!
