DLC CONTENT EASTER EGG? FULL TECH TREE UPGRADE?

Plenty of speculation recently, whether it be new civilizations, campaigns or architecture sets.
Even two new SteamDB DLC listings:

Well, ladies and gents, knights and maidens;

I may have uncovered a possible (and major) change incoming. Whether new civ or full tech tree overhaul (or even a ghastly joke).

Take a look:

Let’s point out the obvious - many pink boxes.
Usually, pink represents Unique Units.
However, the amount of pink boxes could only mean a few things:
a. A new civ is getting a heck of a lot of UUs
b. All civs are having tech tree overhauls to add many more units to the game to EACH civ

Let’s see what we’ve got:

  • 4 pink boxes in the archery range section (Castle Age and Imp. Age)
  • 1 pink box in barracks section (Imp. Age)
  • 2 pink boxes in stable section (Castle Age and Imp. Age)
  • 6 pink boxes in dock section (Castle Age and Imp. Age)

These boxes do not replace (or remove) anything else in your average tech tree, so they must be new units and possibly techs.

What do YOU think this means?
Let us know below!

It’s just a blurred screenshot from this website:

The more interesting part of the wallpaper are the cryptic binary numbers on the keybord but they could also be completely arbitrary. There were discussions on reddit about it but I don’t think anyone was able to decrypt it.

I found two binary numbers which correspond to the symbols ‘4’ and ‘M’ in ASCII code. So maybe we get a DLC announcement on March/May the 4th?

anything on the second keyboard?

nvm it’s cut off

So, the 3 boxes under the dock are the longboat, the turtle ships and the caravel. Under the range there is the genitour and the slinger, and under the barracks there is the condottiero.

What I cannot place is the pink box under the stable in castle age, but the one in imp is the Imperial camel.

4 = AoE4
M = AoM
AoM2 confirmed!

And them earth is also flat. Them aliens made the crop circles and pyramids.

Sorry to be the cynic but i mean devs gave us tat like recycled icicle arrows in place of lasers… I don’t think they’re gonna go to all this effort for something like that… If they had set a precedent but at this rate? Nahhh

Don’t you remember HYSE?

It’s not classified as an UU, but just as an unique skin for the knight, much like meso monks. But it could be that in that tech tree since it lacks an imp upgrade…

where did u find this thou?

This is from the new Comp Stomp event wallpaper.
