African continent was known as ‘Scramble Africa’. Historically Africa was a battleground for all European powers there were English, French, Spanish, Portuegese, Dutch… All racing for their supermacy against each other espically the race against acquiring larger coastline terroritories. In the world war eras, it was race between Axis and Allied forces.
How many off you agree Africa fit for AoE IV???
Yes, though not just Africa.
So, we have AoE DE and we know that AoE II and AoE III are getting DEs in the near future. We can assume that AoE IV was announced very early (too early, really) and is likely still in the initial stages of production. With this in mind, and in large part because Relic have been brought in as developers, I believe that AoE IV will be released some time after AoE III DE, and will be a direct chronological sequel to that game.
I think it’s likely that AoE IV will largely use AoE II as a base - Re…
You’re right but right now I’m just conducting polls for the AoE future franchises.
Africa needs to be well represented no matter what era AoE4 is set in.
If you are doing poll, can be nice these will be correct format.

No it does not, at all. It’s usually left out for a reason so stop the Wakandan bs.
That reason is affirmatively not because there are no worthy civilizations in Africa. AoE has always whitewashed history in its civ selections.
I’m not sure about that. Mesoamerican , Far Asian , Indian, Mesopotamia, Persia…
they are not Europeans Germanic or Eurpeans Latin (meditteraneans).
AoE3 minor civs and mercenaries:
Tell me what exactly has the AoE series been whitewashing here?
Is your definition of whitewashing a list of civilisations?
AoE has a long history of launching with European civs and relegating other continents to expansion pack afterthoughts. AoC and AoE3 are good examples of this.
Is not Egypt the start of AOE in Africa ?
in AOE3 you guys ignored Africa. In AOE4 I hope they enter as a pro civilization Playable after 1945 like Asia
Instead of classification like dutch, portugese etc we must classify AOE4 with region based civs
North American full
East Europe (Soviet Bock) full
West Europe (Celtic warmongers) full
British commonwealth full
Far East Asia
Island nations(Sea People)
Nor Celts or Germanics… in AoE.
Greeks (Macedonians) and Romans… when aok was released was focus in Europa and Asia.
all factions doesn’t fight for same side.
America were only 3 Empires at that timeframe maybe more if we considered other Non Aztec Mexican factions.
Asia starting best as America. Oceania haven’t any…
Indeed it got much better since The Forgotten DLC and other newer DLC’s for AOE 2 & 3.
I rather have even more civilisations with their own culture and empires in this game. Especially if it leads to exciting new game play, units and buildings. Then you could classify them in their original region and balance out each and every civ in those regions a little bit different based on their own specialities.
