The Age of Empires official site has a countdown timer announcing the next adventure, so it is safe to say it's time to talk about Age of Empires IV.
The Age of Empires official site recently hosted a little game where the winners won titles on the official forum and Discord server, and the upcoming Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. Now instead of the game for the community is a timer that's at 197,374 seconds away from zero at them moment of writing, so a bit over two days.
Two days from now is the release of Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition and X019, so what better time to announce the next adventure. Adding to the probability of this happening is Adam Isgreen, the creative director for Age of Empires, talking to PCGamesN earlier this year and noted that they will begin talking about Age of Empires IV later in the year.
He also specifically mentioned Gamescom and X0, well Gamescom has passed and as mentioned X019 is just two days away.
It’s been two years since Age of Empires IV was announced and we will finally learn something new about the new entry in the series. It will be interesting to see what Relic Entertainment has done with Age of Empires IV.
What are your expectations? Will Age of Empires IV be an old-school RTS or will they modernize it to bring in a new audience?
