Today's Age of Empires Fan Preview event has just wrapped, giving us a first proper look at Age of Empires 4's gameplay (amongst other things), as well as an official release window for the game - this Fall.

As you can see from the trailer above, the gameplay looks really, really good, and we're looking forward to getting our hands on it when it arrives on the Windows Store, Steam and of course, Xbox Game Pass for PC. If you can't wait that long, eager fans can get access to an upcoming closed beta by signing up to the Age Insider program.

Sadly, there's no sign of a console version in the works for Age of Empires 4 at present.

"One of the best-selling real-time strategy games returns in glory with Age of Empires IV, putting you at the center of epic historical battles that shaped the modern world.

Make History Your Story in Age of Empires IV coming Fall 2021 on Xbox Game Pass for PC, Windows Store, and Steam."

Looking forward to this? Sad about the lack of a console version? Let us know in the comments.
