Microsoft’s Age of Empires series is one of the most beloved series of gamers around the world. It’s a strategic game where we build our empires based on our strategic might.
In 2017, the company announced that it is developing Age of Empires IV at the Vancouver-based studio Relic Entertainment. But after that, we rarely received any updates regarding the release of the game. But the fans need not wait any longer as we now have some confirmation about the game. it seems that the year 2021 will bring out one of the most anticipated strategic games of this decade.
“We are making great progress on the Age of Empires IV. I don’t want to make you jealous, but we are playing this game every single day, both in Washington and in Vancouver. RTS development is funny — it takes a while to build the separate systems (AI, economy, sim, rendering, etc.), and then it takes a while for them to come together. But when they do, you suddenly have a game—a game that needs debugging and balance and polish, but the core of the game that you know you’re going to ship. And the best part is that it feels like an Age of Empires game.”
But not just this, the other installations of the franchise will also receive various updates. According to sources, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition will receive a new expansion, entitled Lords of the West, in January. Not only that but the Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition will be receiving a similar “live service” treatment with new content down the line.
The most anticipated PC strategy game,Age of Empires IV will be launched in the first quarter of 2021. watch the trailer below:
