Release Date & Time Age of Empires IV

So far, Age of Empires has had four incarnations and one ‘Age of Mythology’ title. It is the jewel in the crown of real-time strategy games. Thursday 28th of October is the scheduled release date for Age of Empires. In the US, it will launch at 8 am PDT time, with a date of 4 pm BST in the UK and Europe. This means you do not have long until you can play.

At the moment, Age of Empires IV is exclusive to PC. You can either choose to buy the game on Steam or the Xbox Game Pass for PC app. If you are a member of Game Pass, you won’t need to spend any extra cash on the title. It will be available to play from the release date.

Other than this, you have no other current ways to play it. Age of Empires IV should migrate to Xbox consoles at some point. However, it is doubtful that we will see it on PlayStation or Switch at any time due to licensing.

With a huge online community, you can even sign up to be an Age Insider. This gives you the chance to play exclusive updates, get access to news and provide feedback on the game. Joining beta games for any upcoming titles is also an option. To sign up you need an Xbox live account and can find the sign-up link on the website.
