Age of Empires IV had its gameplay debut at X019


Set in the Medieval era

Age of Empires II: Definite Edition has taken up the spotlight lately, but during today’s X019 presentation in London, we got a look a real, non-concept-arty look at the future of the series, Age of Empires IV.

Along with Age of Empires IV gameplay footage, we also learned that Microsoft’s dedicated Age of Empires studio is now going by World’s Edge. As a reminder, Age of Empires IV is a partnership between Microsoft and developer Relic Entertainment (Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War and Company of Heroes), and they’re looking to “bring this franchise back to the forefront of gaming.”

The timing here couldn’t be better, what with AoE II: Definitive Edition hitting Steam today.
