One of the most beloved real-time strategy games returns to glory with Age of Empires IV, putting you at the center of epic historical battles that shaped the world. Featuring both familiar and innovative new ways to expand your empire in vast landscapes with stunning 4K visual fidelity, Age of Empires IV brings an evolved real-time strategy game to a new generation.

Return to History – The past is prologue as you are immersed in a rich historical setting of 8 diverse civilizations across the world from the English to the Chinese to the Delhi Sultanate in your quest for victory. Build cities, manage resources, and lead your troops to battle on land and at sea in 4 distinct campaigns with 35 missions that span across 500 years of history from the Dark Ages up to the Renaissance.

Choose Your Path to Greatness with Historical Figures – Live the adventures of Joan of Arc in her quest to defeat the English, or command mighty Mongol troops as Genghis Khan in his conquest across Asia. The choice is yours – and every decision you make will determine the outcome of history.

Customize Your Game with Mods – Available in Early 2022, play how you want with user generated content tools for custom games.

Challenge the World – Jump online to compete, cooperate or spectate with up to 7 of your friends in PVP and PVE multiplayer modes.

An Age for All Players – Age of Empires IV is an inviting experience for new players with a tutorial system that teaches the essence of real-time strategy and a Campaign Story Mode designed for first time players to help achieve easy setup and success, yet is challenging enough for veteran players with new game mechanics, evolved strategies, and combat techniques.

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.

Maybe will be
interbellum (1920-1930+)
WW2
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.
