Is there any chance of AoE III to have its part or influence on AoE IV espically regarding graphics, desgin and ages???
If by graphics you mean “3d with cool physics and a generally realistic style”, most certainly. Regarding the age settings? Hard to tell. That teaser suggested they will be visiting all ages, but that’s really just a guess. We don’t know if it’s “stone age to AOE 3 Imperial Age”, or Stone to Castle, or 18th to 19th century for that matter.
My hope is that, as far as game design and scope go, we see more of a return to AOE 2. The biggest issue I took with AOE 3 was how it felt more like you were establishing a tiny outpost for an existing empire, rather than YOU building a civilization.
AoE III gameplay lacks many features even though its centered around colonization.
no. the franchise must move forward.
