General | Latest Info

The Age of Empires franchise is experiencing a bit of resurgence. The first two games received Definitive Editions last year and have enjoyed critical and commercial success. Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition's recent Steam launch indicates the legendary series is far from finish, and rumors are spreading that Age of Empires IV is gearing up for a 2021 release. While nothing has been confirm, it hasn't stop fans from showing their enthusiasm for the highly anticipated entry. Age of Empires IV will be the franchise's first new entry in 15 years. Last entry, Age of Empires III, came out in 2005 to lukewarm reception from long-time fans. It wasn't that Age of Empires III was bad, it just didn't feel like the true Age of Empires Game. It is one of the few games that suffers from too much innovation. Developers even admit they stray too far from the original Age of Empires format, causing it to feel like a completely different RTS experience. Many long-time fans hope that developers return Age of Empires IV to its roots, while still pushing the franchise forward. Developer Relic Entertainment announced the fourth Age of Empires installment will return to the Middle Ages, instead of moving on to a more modern era. This is a bit surprising, since series always focus on progressing through historical time periods. It might be disappointing for some, but many longtime fans embrace the decision since it will share the same era as Age of Empires II, most popular and well-receive entry in the entire franchise. Earlier time periods tend to mesh with Age of Empires gameplay better than modern eras. Most people associate franchises with swords and spears, rather than guns and grenades. If Age of Empires continues progressing through time, Age of Empires IV would capture the 19 or 20th century. Tons of other real-time strategy games already focus on modern time periods, so progressing to these eras would cause Age of Empires to lose bit of its identity. Another thing long-time fans would like to see in Age of Empires IV is the return of complex managing systems. Age of Empires III simplifies the franchises' iconic building and management structure. Resources were easier to come by, city building mechanics were simplified and maps were reduced down to minimal sizes. Players also didn't form the same bond with their civilizations as they did in previous games. It seem like all management aspects were pushed to side, to make room for more military battles and sieges. Most Age of Empires fans enjoy somewhat meticulous management systems and didn't like the oversimplified style of AoE III. If Age of Empires IV can capture the complexity of the first two games without making it too overbearing for new players, it might overtake Age of Empires II as best in Series. It's been nearly 25 years since Age of Empires established itself as one of the best RTS franchises of all time.

Age Of Empires 4 Trailer

The trailer didnt reveal anything about gameplay. Although it wouldnt be surprising if Age of Empires IV did not veer too much from the much-love and critically praised previous installments of the series. Earlier games each focused on exclusive period of history, with specific campaigns, and this game will likely do the same. Or it could provide a sweeping expanse of multiple epochs with cross-pollination of campaigns. Gameplay will very likely have at least some changes relate to features such as new units, resources, and tech trees as well as improvements to mechanics and UI.

Final Word

Within the gaming world, it is hard press to find anyone who hasnt heard or played Age Of Empires 2. A glance at the top thirty stream games on Twitch on any given weeknight confirms this. Nestle among continual heavy hitters like Dota 2 and Grand Theft Auto V, youll find very Ensemble Studios-develop RTS cult classic that rival StarCraft in its heyday. Microsoft, aware of the pedigree of IP, has vowed to make Age Of Empires 4, alongside some remakes of previous games in the series, starting with the release of Age Of Empires: Definitive Edition in February 2018. Although Age Of Empires 4 is ways off, weve compiled a trickle of details released by Microsoft. So, what can we expect from this reboot, and how will it compare to the originals that cement Age Of Empires franchises in the pantheon of real-time strategy gaming?

Graphics, unit movement, and upgrades

The graphics are a bit of a departure, and at first, they seem a bit cartoonish. However, if you consider how much saturation is usually applied to Age of Empires pre-release content, this should prove to be a beautiful game, and the saturation level will be in-Game setting. It seems like it will be a good balance between visibility and realism, and there's plenty of detail for buildings and universities alike. Just like in some previous Age games, there will be plenty of destruction to be work at hands of your units. Pathfinding, RTS game's chief concern, has been overhaul. Instead of traditional moving from point to point B in the shortest way possible, Age of Empires 4 should introduce far more realistic movement. Adam Isgreen explains: Isgreen also mentions how passive upgrades will be visually represented in-Game. All armor or weapon upgrades will be visual, easing accessibility. And instead of having repeated chatter each time you click Unit, which is endearing but can get annoying, there will be much more natural dialogue between Units based on surrounding circumstances.
