Age of Empires IV Shared Roadmap For Fall 2021 & Spring 2022

Age of Empires IV, the latest instalment in the beloved RTS series, was officially released on October 28th. Since then, World’s Edge and Relic Entertainment have collected player feedback, released patch 7989, and have taken to the official site to share what’s next for AoEIV in Winter 2021 and Spring 2022.

In Winter 2021, the team will be introducing hundreds of balance changes, a variety of bug fixes and a few key features requested in player feedback. The developers have been hard at work preparing this update:

  • Based on community feedback, the team made the decision to implement in-game scores for those who wish to have them
  • The Chinese Dynasty button has been moved to the lower left-hand corner
  • The ability to view the map post-match
  • Refinements were made to the in-game minimap to improve readability

The team also tackled balance and bug fixing:

  • French Hulk ship tweaked to no longer rule the high seas.
  • Crossbowmen, Spearman and Elite Crossbowmen will pose a greater threat to Cavalry.
  • Significantly reducing the cost of the Chinese civilization’s Repeater crossbow.
  • Fix to HRE Prelate unit to allow them to continue inspiring after being pushed.
  • Mongol “Superior Mobility” adjusted to ensure the speed modifier is appropriately applied. Thanks to the community for calling this out!
  • Fix issued for the Rus civilization to eliminate infinite Relic duplication.

In Spring 2022, the team will be adding two new ways to enjoy Age of Empires IV:

  • User Generated Content and tools allow you to bring your ideas to life. Not a mod maker yourself? No worries, you’ll still be able to enjoy the work of others — sampling their vision for unique maps, modes, and more. This will provide just another way to truly make history your story in Age of Empires IV.
  • Spring 2022 will also see the start of Ranked Seasons. Ranked Seasons will span 12 weeks, allow players to compete head-to-head, climb the ranked ladder, and earn exclusive in-game rewards based on performance.

The team also urged the players to share feedback on the following topics:

  • Global Build Queue
  • Improvements to the Unit Stat card
  • Hotkey Improvements
  • Taunts and Cheats
  • AI Difficulty
  • Waypoint Indicators
