Age of Empires 4 released a few days ago and has been doing pretty well on Steam. Along with topping the global top sellers list, out-selling even the likes of Forza Horizon 5, it hit a peak concurrent player count of 73,928 as per SteamDB. Compare this to Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition’s all-time peak of 38,725 players.
Along many of the same gameplay tenets as previous titles, Age of Empires 4 features eight civilizations like the Holy Roman Empire, the Mongols and even new entries like the Delhi Sultanate. This is on top of four campaigns and multiplayer. It also doesn’t hurt that there’s a Min Spec mode that allows older and less powerful machines to play the game, further expanding its out-reach.
Age of Empires 4 is also available on PC via the Microsoft Store and on Xbox Game Pass for PC. Time will tell if it receives extensive post-launch support like Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition did so stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
