According to Microsoft, Age of Empires IV will be set in the medieval era. The new video revealed that the game will feature at least two civilizations which are English and Mongol.

Fans should also know that this new Age of Empires game is being made by the studio Relic Entertainment, the team behind the Company of Heroes and WarHammer 40K: Dawn of War titles.

Microsoft further revealed that a definitive edition for Age of Empires III is also in the works and the company has opened a new studio called World's Edge to oversee the game's development.
