It can be hard to believe, but it was 2005 when Age of Empires 3 launched. Now 16 years later, we’re on the verge of a full sequel finally coming out, set to hit this October. Age of Empires 4 promises to once again allow us to build a mighty empire that focuses on important historical events in both new and familiar ways. Today we got a quick look at one of those empires, as well as a new way to dominate your foes.
Via the official Xbox YouTube channels, Microsoft and Relic Entertainment highlighted the Abbasid Dynasty, which will be one of the eight dynasties you can chose. They will have a variety of interesting features, such as deadly camel riders as well the use of the wisdom to advance their empire. The second video is all about the new naval combat, where you will build specialized boats to help conquer the seas. Check out both below.
