One of the first games, come to mind when talking about strategy games is Age of Empires. The game, which has not lost its popularity for years and still maintains its audience as online on Steam and other platforms, has managed to make its players happy with its remastered versions in recent years.
The popular game series is now getting ready to face its players with its new game, Age of Empires 4. So when will Relic Entertainment‘s latest game be released?
Although the last main game of the series, Age of Empires 3, could not meet the expectations, the second game and definitive edition version of the series is still great. In Age of Empires 1, which was released in 1997, the first game of the series, we saw a story that started from the Stone Age and continued until the Iron Age. And the last game of the series, which allows us to witness the ages when firearms began to become widespread, was released in 2005. Twelve years after the previous game, a new game was announced. As the fans got excited about the new game announced, questions about the game started to mind.

What will be the plot of Age of Empires IV?
The game’s creative director, Adam Isgreen, says in an interview that they prepare very different things about the campaign for the game and bring the history to people excitingly and entertainingly. Adam Isgreen, who emphasizes that they will modernize the game, states that they stay away from complicated elements.
Another important detail about the game is that the game’s music is the same composer as Witcher 3’s composer. This news will excite those who have played Witcher 3 and those who will understand what kind of music quality we are talking about. Even the music that will play in the game can take the game to another level.
Is there a gameplay trailer for Age of Empires 4?
When we look at the game trailer published in 2017, we see the armies in the old games. In fact, it can be said that the explanation made by Isgreen is a little confusing. There are two possibilities here; either a new era will come to the game, and we will be able to see technological developments, or they keep the story of the game short, and we have to buy new stories with the support of DLC. Option 2 seems to be inevitable, but we hope that it will not too exaggerated.
When we examine the trailer of the game, we cannot ignore the following innovative details.
- Military units can patrol on top the walls
- Custom new roads
- More decoration structures (e.g. fountains)
- More types of farms (e.g., corn farm)
- 3D Camera and next generation graphics
- Troops rallying other troops
When will Age of Empires 4 be released?
The fact that the game’s music is also made may indicate that we are close to the exit. Although the studio or Microsoft has not yet released an official date for the game’s release date, the estimates show the first quarter of 2021 to release the Age of Empires 4. We think that due to the pandemic, this date may go a little further, and the game will be released around May – June 2021. We will update when we receive more formal information about this issue or leak.
On which platforms will the game be?
Relic Entertainment is developing the game for PC players. Unfortunately, we will not see the game on PS4, PS5, or on other platforms. We do not know if there will be a surprise in the future.
