Let the new Age of Empires begin!

~ After 12 years since AOE3 come out, this is the first news about a new Age of empires IV! ~

Who does not see this coming? Okay, Microsoft was fine enough when they announced that there was a remaster of Age of Empires on October 19th, but most people understood what was waiting when saying there would be an exciting Age of Empires later on. I had the collector edition of Age of empires 3 since it come out 12 years ago and all the way back in the book it shows this.

So will the new AOE be about world war II? what might also surprise many is that Age of Empires IV is being developed by the Dawn of War / Homeworld / Company of Heroes Creators in Relic Entertainment. Besides that, no one else know much more, but an advertising trailer and only the confirmation for now.


There have been always some overlap between AoE's: in AoE and AoK:TC there were featured the Romans and in AoE:TC and AoE3 the Spanish conquerors and Aztecs. The centuries V and XV have been some sort of transition.

My guess is that XIX century is also that one. They will start in the last half of the XIX century, featuring some events like the American civil war (maybe too far), the Franco-Prussian war or maybe from the last quarter of the XIX with the African colonization with the zulu wars and the Boer wars, the Mexican Revolution, the Boxers or the Taiping rebellions, then going into full WW1, some interwar scenario and finishing in WW2, maybe expanding into Korea or Vietnam war.

The whole XX century by itself has a big jump on technology and AoE tends to focus on a consistent play style along the stages.

I personally expect less protagonism of WW2 because let's face it, there are myriads of ww2 games. Even Relic made CoH.

I wonder what the ages will be
cold war

Maybe will be
interbellum (1920-1930+)
Early Cold war (1950-1960)
Late Cold war (1970-1980)
This seems more likely to me, in part because the time interval and the difference in technology and tactics between periods are not so big.

YES. I hope rise of nations 2 is next!
