A special Age of Empires-focused event is coming out of Microsoft soon, with the development teams behind the three remasters and the upcoming fourth entry today announcing the Age of Empires: Fan Preview event for April 10.
The highly anticipated Age of Empires IV will finally receive another showing at this event. The Relic Entertainment-developed real-time strategy game last appeared in public in 2019 following its 2017 unveiling. The game is set in the medieval era, and it has been confirmed that gameplay styles of playable civilizations will be very different from each other.
Per today's announcement, the upcoming broadcast will include a "new look at gameplay, civilizations, campaigns, and more" of Age of Empires IV.
That's not all, as "exciting news" regarding Age of Empires II and III Definitive Editions will be happening at the presentation also. Though the announcement does not hint at anything specific, more new expansion pack reveals, or perhaps news about the popular PC franchise finally getting Xbox console ports may be in the cards.
The Age of Empires: Fan Preview will kick off at 9AM PT /12AM ET / 17:00 CET on April 10. The half-hour program will be broadcasted across AgeofEmpires.com, Twitch, Facebook Live, the Xbox YouTube channel, and Bilibili, which will be followed by a week of special fan celebrations on the official Age of Empires website.
