Age of Empires IV Gets New Civilizations For First Anniversary

New Empires To Build

Age of Empires IV

Age of Empires IV revived a classic franchise last  year, just in time for the series’ 25th Anniversary this year. The team at Relic Entertainment did a great job, earning a 4/5 from us, and they’ve kept pumping out more content for fans to return to.

This October they’ll be putting out a major set of content to celebrate the one year anniversary of the game’s release. This update is highlighted by two additional civilizations. Both the Ottomans and the Malians will be available for players to lead to victory.

There will also be more maps, achievements, masteries, and more to check out in this update so you’ll have plenty to keep you coming back if you need to get your RTS on.

If you’re looking forward to these additions but haven’t yet grabbed Age of Empires IV, now is a good time to consider it. The game is currently 50% off on Steam and the Windows Store. It’s of course also still a part of PC Game Pass if you subscribe. This update will release October 25th.

Andrew has been writing about video games for nearly twenty years, contributing to publications such as DarkStation, Games Are Fun, and the E-mpire Ltd. network. He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
