Xbox Game Studios released today a brand new Age of Empires IV trailer. The launch trailer arrives a few short days before Age of Empires IV releases on PC later this week.
The trailer is a live-action affair charting a Delhi Sultanate commander’s strategic moves to best an invading horde of Mongols. Channeling the series’ heavy emphasis on counters and adaptation to various threats, the new Age of Empires IV trailer depicts the commander’s response to the increasing danger before launching an all-out attack. Xbox has seemingly spared no expense on production value. It’s a sharp advert for the highly-anticipated real-time strategy game, although it lacks any new gameplay footage.
Early reviews suggest Xbox Game Studios and developers Relic Entertainment and World’s Edge have succeeded in capturing the essence of what makes Age of Empires such a timeless hit, all while injecting new life into the franchise.
