The new campaign sees King Harold and Duke William battling for the throne.
The Age of Empires Fan Preview started off with a bang, showcasing the new civilization coming to Age of Empires 4 along with one of four new campaigns. The Delhi Sultanate makes it debut, having an advantage in research and technology. Meanwhile, the new campaign explores the conflict between King Harold and Duke William of Normandy. Check it out below.
Set in 1066, the Norman Campaign sees Harold, King of the Anglo-Saxons, dealing with Duke William who lays claim to the throne. The two collide at the Battle of Hastings but there’s more in store. While Normandy is besieged, Harold has to deal with Viking raiders (who have allied with the Northern barons). Meanwhile, the peasantry revolts against a king they don’t recognize.
Age of Empires 4 is currently in development for PC but doesn’t have a release window yet. All footage showcased during the Fan Preview has been captured in-engine but more gameplay is set to be revealed. Stay tuned for more details as the stream rolls on.
