Earlier this year, the teams at Xbox, Relic, and World's Edge excited strategy fans by revealing that Age of Empires 4 was indeed still in the works. Sunday's Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase went a little bit more into detail, showing off a new trailer for the game, as well as an official release date.
For those who have missed anything related to Age of Empires 4 up to this point, the game will take players across four different campaigns. The idea will be to build prosperous cities, manage their resources, and do battle across both land and sea. The full game will feature 35 missions to run from the Dark Ages through the Renaissance, challenging players to manage multi-generational armies across centuries. Sunday's Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase offered the latest look at Age of Empires 4's gameplay.
With over 500 years of history under this game's umbrella, players will get to experience the stories of some of civilization's greatest figures, like Joan of Arc or Genghis Khan. The full experience will unfold with bright and colorful 4K resolution.
Age of Empires is coming to PC on October 28. It's available for pre-order right now on Steam. However, the game will also be available on launch day on Xbox Game Pass for PC, for anybody looking to run with Windows 10 version.
