I've never played an Age of Empires game, but I will likely be trying this out for PC when it comes out. I feel like this is a game much better on a keyboard and mouse.

Man, are you in for a treat.

AoE 2 is currently my favorite of the bunch. It's on Steam if you want to try it out.

Too little to really say anything. The look of the city reminded me of stronghold and makes me wonder if there'll be a great(er) emphasis on siege warfare in aoe4. But that might just be for show, for the trailer.

No idea if it'll be good, but thank goodness it isn't modern/sci-fi.

Even better for me is that it is on Game Pass for PC. I was lucky enough to get 3 years of Game Pass Ultimate for $1.

It does lok very, very good.

My only worry is that, with the game being developed by Relic, I don't know if the game will feature the classic singular units or if it will be based around formations, something that proper gameplay would answer.

Yeah, I'm hoping myself that it doesn't turn into something of a clone of TW, because we already have TW for formations and the like. 



I'm really excited by AoE IV, but I'm afraid it might deviate too much from AoE II. Simplicity always worked best for this series.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
