The Age of Empires website
a few Age of Empires announcements from Gamescom. First and foremost is the news
that Age of Empires 4
is in development at Relic Entertainment. They say they
cannot wait tell us more about this, but they are waiting anyway. They say to
stay tuned for more details, and in the meantime, they offer
an announce trailer
to celebrate the news. This ends with the Windows 10 logo, and it's possible
that it's not coming to older versions of Windows. They also announce an October 19th release date for the
Age of Empires: Definitive Edition
, a Windows 10 exclusive, and they also revealed plans for definite
editions of Age of Empires 2 and 3, which are presumably for Windows 10 too. They also offer a new
Age of Empires Definitive
Edition Gamescom 2017 trailer
. Here's word:
Age of Empires 4!!!!!!!!

of the rest of the announcements from our event. There is a lot to cover!
We started off announcing the release date for Age of Empires: Definitive
Edition, October 19th, 2017! What a great way to celebrate the 20th anniversary
of the original game! AoE: DE will launch with a ton of awesome new features,
but we have kept a lot of things the same to preserve the feel of the original
game. Take a look at the list:

- Rally Points Basic
- Rally Points Contextual (Intelligent Villagers)
- Grid default key layout
- Select Idle Military
- Select Idle Villagers

We then announced that we will be releasing Definitive Editions of both Age
II and Age III, keep an eye out for more details about those!
Those led nicely into our announcement of Age of Empires IV. We are also excited
to announce that we are working with the fantastic team from Relic Entertainment
to make this the best Age game yet! Stay tuned for more details, we cannot wait
to tell you more.
