In an announcement that was somewhat overshadowed by the huge Xbox leak yesterday, it was confirmed that the new Age of Empires 4 DLC (titled "The Sultans Ascend") will launch on November 14th for Xbox consoles and PC.

This expansion features a new eight-mission campaign, two new civilisations (Japanese & Byzantines), four new variant civilisations, 10 new maps, two new biomes and new unlockable rewards - all for the price of just £12.49 / $14.99! Better yet, Xbox Game Pass members can also get a 10% discount on this DLC.

We'll throw more details about The Sultans Ascend below, along with a few screenshots:

"Take up arms as the Muslim resistance in the fight against the European Crusades in the dramatic new single player campaign. Follow the story of well-known Muslim leaders, their struggles with the Crusaders, and the battles they fought.

In addition to a brand-new campaign, this feature-packed expansion includes two completely new playable civilizations, the Japanese and the Byzantines, and four playable variant civilizations which revisit and re-imagine civilizations first introduced in the main release of Age of Empires IV. It also includes ten new maps, new unlockable rewards and more."
