Age of Empires, the long running strategic war saga, is set to launch it’s newest edition later this year. Age of Empires IV will be the first brand new, full-game release since Age of Empires III in 2005. The franchise remains as popular as ever, mostly amongst a loyal, yet surprisingly large band of gamers who have been with the franchise ever since it’s originals in 1997.
It’s hoped with the recent releases of remastered Definitive Editions & Age of Empires IV, younger fans will begin to discover the Age of Empires franchise.
Xbox released gameplay footage 2 months ago for Age of Empires IV. The graphics, along with gameplay mechanics, seem to be greatly improved. You can watch this footage below.
The footage comes as a welcome surprise to fans of the series after the games initial announcement all the way back in 2017.
