In Age of Empires 4, players will visit the Chinese, Delhi Sultanate, English, and Mongol empires where they will have to be resourceful and strategize in order to build their empires. The Xbox official tweet featured an official trailer for the game introducing the Norman Campaign taking place in 1066 during a war over who is the rightful king for the throne of England. On the official website, developers share a little bit about the new campaign writing,
At the start of the Norman Campaign — just one of four campaigns available in Age of Empires IV — William of Normandy sets forth on the hard-fought road to conquer England and become it’s new king. What follows is an epic story of succession, family conflict, anarchy, and rebellion — all with the players in the front seat.
Since the release of the first Age of Empires game in 1997, it has become a popular game due to its real-time strategy and gameplay. While there is not any other news about the other campaigns, from the preview, fans can expect some amazing gameplay features that even have a lot of fan influence.
