Age of Empires 4 will include a series of historical documentaries dedicated to the Middle Ages. They will last about an hour total and will allow us to discover the secrets of trebuchets, surgery, warfare, the construction of castles, falconry, the creation of armour and Mongolian musical instruments, and more.
The information was shared by Adam Isgreen, creative director of Age of Empires 4, during the Gamescom 2021 Xbox event.
The purpose of these documentary videos will be to “humanize history”. The creation was entrusted to UK production company Lion TV, which travelled the world to meet with experts and record videos that include as many real-life examples as possible. In other words, we will be able to see a real trebuchet in action and beyond.
Age of Empires 4 will arrive on PC on August 28, 2021.
