With the upcoming launch of Age of Empires IV, we’re happy to announce the “soft launch” of the new https://www.ageofempires.com web site design. The new site features some of the same beautiful imagery and UI from Age IV and brings a number of improvements to accessibility and performance. What makes it a “soft launch”? We wanted to get the new site out in front of our fans as early as possible so we can start iterating on making additions and improvements. In order to get it launched sooner, we’ve taken a hybrid approach to the site updates.
As you browse through the site you may run into areas of the site that still have the old theme still applied. Not to worry, that’s expected and as you continue to navigate through the site you should naturally flow between the old and new themes. As we complete updates to the remaining areas of the site, they’ll automatically get switched on with the new template. Once our conversion is complete, we’re looking forward to focusing on adding some new features for the site as well as making improvements to our forums.
