Microsoft have announced Age of Empires 4. The below trailer was released at Gamescom 2017.

Link for those using Firefox:

The game is being developed by Relic Entertainment, an experienced RTS games developer that developed Dawn of War & Company of Heroes.

Also announced were Definitive Editions of AoK and AoE3.

And they're also doing 'definitive editions' of AoE2 and AoE3.

EDIT: This must be the first time you've posted in a long time right?

Yeah you caught me!

You'll remember that four (!) hour game against that crazy Russian that wouldn't give up, not realizing he was playing someone who in real life actually is a crazy Russian, that won't give up either. - Ender_Ward

When I saw this, I knew I'd have to drop in and figure out my old password.

Welp, here's hoping I can upgrade in time to take advantage of the beta.

And look under the hood to see what kind of modding/customisation tools we will get with this iteration! (Yeah as much as one can hope for nicely balanced civs and better matchmaking, I'm already fixing to bust open the hood and add a nitro canister)

Hopefully a fully fledged modding API for all the Age games...a more intuitive and more widely-supported 3D format...better AI scripting and more tools for random map generation.

No AOM makes me cri

edit1: Let's hope we will be able to import our existing AOK and AOE3 scenarios and custom maps into the "Deffo Edition". Or at least convert them easily into the deffo formats without losing all the triggers.

edit2: also maybe rebalance AOE and AOK combat to include hard counters and pierce resistance, so less chariot archer laming and pikes/halbs that actually counter tarkan raids instead of wasting army space.

Bart331 balance suggestion: aztec: remove civ
Voltiguer: Ender, Sioux in 1.04 will be a top civ, no matter how many layers of Sioux goggles you put on
