CM – Age Of Empires 4 is out this October



If you don’t want to play a Halloween game this Halloween, now is the time to play a new Age Of Empires game instead. Age Of Empires 4 will be out on October 28th and we saw some new footage of some powerful battles during the Microsoft and Bethesda stream on E3. Joan of Arc is there, as are many horses, sieges and a handful of elephants.

Age Of Empires 4 was first revealed in 2017 and is being developed by Relic, the people who made Company Of Heroes. It is set in the Middle Ages and, like the aging empires before it, will bring civilizations from around the world together to compete against each other.

In the trailer we see many real-time strategy battles over grassy plains as well as on ships in the ocean. There is a siege of a European city and Joan of Arc rushes into battle with her soldiers. We also see some cavalry units as well as elephants and camels in combat.

Players can choose from the English, Mongols, Chinese, the Delhi Sultanate, the Abbasid Dynasty, and the French, and each faction has its own focus (or what they’re good at).

« The French were unveiled along with the 100-year campaign that allowed players to take part in the battles that were fought between the English and French in the 14th and 15th centuries, » say the developers. « The French thrive in trade, with the landmarks of the Chamber of Commerce and the Royal Institute helping to bolster a player’s late game. Royal Knights are one of civilization’s special forces with a fearsome ability to attack. »

In his preview of Age Of Empires 4, Nate said, « If I had to describe what my ideal Age Of Empires sequel would look like, I have to say it would look very similar. »

Age Of Empires 4 will be released on October 28th on Steam and in the Microsoft Store. It will also be available on Xbox Game Pass for PC at launch.

E3 2021 will take place from June 12th to 15th, with other events around it. For more really useful information on the entire virtual shebang, check out our E3 stream schedule and visit our E3 2021 hub to keep up to date with the news.
