On October 28, one of the most acclaimed and iconic real-time strategy game series will return with the release of Age of Empires IV, ushering in a new era of kings, queens, empires, and heroes. Age of Empires IV invites players to make history their story with eight unique civilizations and four epic campaigns that cover nearly 500 years of history, from the Dark Ages all the way through to the Renaissance.
In true Age of Empires style, you’ll harvest resources, construct massive cities, assemble epic armies, and lead your troops to battle across land and sea as you’re immersed in a highly detailed historical setting. You can also hop online and experience a robust multiplayer feature set, competing against skilled players online or cooperating with up to seven of your friends across a variety of PVP or PVE modes.
And what better way to show off your strategic prowess than with achievements! Shared here today is your first look at every achievement you can unlock in Age of Empires IV – save for some of the most secret achievements you’ll have to discover for yourself (no spoilers here). Learn new skills in the Art of War challenges and earn the title of “Record Breaker” and +10 to your Gamerscore by receiving five Gold medals. Emerge victorious from battle against A.I. to test your strength as a strategist and earn one of four achievements, based on the difficulty level of the A.I. Or challenge yourself as the French to win a match without producing infantry for the “Who Needs Infantry?” achievement for 20 points. In all there’s nearly 90 achievements here for you to unlock – which ones are you going to go for first?
With innovative new ways to expand your empire across vast landscapes in stunning 4K, Age of Empires IV is set to bring real-time strategy to a new generation of PC gamers.
