April 13, 2021 The U.S. Civilian is available now on Steam and Windows for $ 4.99, £ 3.99, or by completing the 50-State Challenge (details below).
Today’s Age of Empires Fan Preview Event dwarfed Age of Empires 4 and gave us a first look at what it will look like. You can read a roundup of the key details if you’re interested, but new things have also been announced for the final editions of the Age of Empires series.
Age of Empires 2 DE is a new expansion and cooperation, but Age of Empires 3 DE will get some love next week too! Next Tuesday, AOE3 will receive its first major update and DLC package that will introduce the United States into the game as a separate civilization. You will receive, among other things, a new unique explorer unit as well as eight more units, the hometown and a brand new “Age Up” mechanic.
For a limited time, unlock the United States civilians for free by completing a new challenge with status “50”, each one involving a single state. Please note that unlocking the new content this way will take at least 17 days as you can only complete three challenges per day.
You can purchase it through Steam or the Windows Store for $ 4.99 £ 3.99. Later this year, the game will also feature new African civilizations that will be introduced in a future expansion.
No further details were given to us. There were some pictures and live footage available during the fan preview stream which you can check out at 12:50 PM above. Age of Empires 4 is expected to be released in the fall of 2021.
