Microsoft has announced Age of Empires IV alongside Age of Empires: Definitive Edition. The company did not reveal any information about the release date or price or gameplay. The announcement trailer is also quite vague. The YouTube description suggests that the game will allow you ‘to battle through history once more in the latest entry of the landmark Age of Empires franchise.’
Fans of the iconic game have been waiting for a sequel. The original Age of Empires was followed by subsequent games like Age of Mythology, Age of Empires III and an Age of Empires Online Edition. According to the new trailer, you will need a Windows 10 PC to play Age of Empires IV. The lack of Steam support might deter some Age of Empires fans. Meanwhile, the original Age of Empires series is getting a reboot as the Age of Empires: Definitive Edition. It will be available in October this year.
The new game is being developed by Relic Entertainment, which has previously worked on Homeworld, Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40,000 franchises. It is known for bringing innovative features in the RTS genre (real-time strategy). We will have to wait and see how Relic handles the Age of Empires series. The original Age of Empires franchise was developed by Ensemble Studios.
