apparently Age of Empires 4 will not have microtransactions or buy in the game of some sort. The player can then choose whether to buy the entire game or play it with the Xbox Games Pass subscription.
According to creative director Adam Isgreen, microtransactions are unsuitable for real-time strategic real estate. However, Age of Empires 4 will have DLC and extensions, probably on the model followed by the previous chapter. According to Isgreen, World & # 39; s Edge, the new studio dedicated to the Age of Empires brand, was created specifically to extend the entire story, including old chapters, as evidenced by the recently launched Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition. Speaking of extensions, Isgreen said that their content will largely depend on the community that will be born around the game. That is, the developers think about listening to what the players want more and then giving it to them, instead of doing it alone.
Currently, Age of Empires 4 does not have a release date yet, but recently the first game video has been shown and fans are already on their way.
