One of the best-selling RTS series makes its return with Xbox Game Studios, Relic Entertainment, and World’s Edge’s Age of Empires IV – see it in action with the latest gameplay trailer for the game.
New to the game is the playable Delhi Sultanate civilization. In addition, the iconic War Elephant unit will make its return. In true series’ fashion, spearmen, archers, and more combat-oriented construction will develop as civilizations start to age-up and skirmishes escalate to war.
Revealed during the global fan preview for the series, the trailer below takes a look at the new Norman campaign. This campaign tells the story of Duke William of Normandy as he wrestles control of England from King Harold.
Presentation-wise, the game draws inspiration from gilded manuscripts of the time, with the “golden soldiers” projecting historical events over present-day real-world locations.
