Microsoft announces Age of Empires 4 by Relic

Microsoft announced today at Gamescom that Relic Entertainment, known for the Dawn of War and Company of Heroes strategy games, will be making Age of Empires 4 for Windows.

The company released this trailer for the game. It has been over ten years since the last numerical Age of Empires installment though there have been several handheld and PC off-shoots. The company also revealed that Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will hit Windows 10 on October 19th. No Xbox One version has been announced, which makes sense as playing the game using an Xbox One controller sounds complicated.

Microsoft hired Creative Assembly to make Halo Wars 2 and it appears they are going all out by contracting Relic to revive AoE!
