Age of Empires IV Introduced The Rus

Following the gameplay videos featuring the Mongols, the French and the English, the developers from Relic Entertainment and World’s Edge have introduced the Rus to real-time strategy Age of Empires IV.

The advantage of playing the Rus is that the wilderness is yours to command. By using your surroundings, particularly gathering resources, you can build up a strong economy quickly. In battle, the Rus are known for their mounted Warrior Monk that can buff surrounding units, and for the Streltsy, a powerful gunpowder unit.

Additionally, the team revealed Age of Empires IV shortcuts. If you’ve wanted to queue up some Archers, get those Farms quickly constructed, and find that dang Idle Villager who’s just been hanging out taking up space, hotkeys will allow you to do that in style.
