In the new year 2022, Age of Empires IV players can expect a lot. Now the developers have presented the roadmap for the new year.
Although more content was promised towards the end, the roadmap for 2022 essentially consists of two seasons. In Season 1 in spring you can expect the start of the ranked season.
The new season does not currently have a specific release date from Relic Entertainment, but it doesn’t seem to be too far away either. When the time comes, the real-time strategy game will also be opened up to the modding community, because a content editor will also be included. There should also be various mods and tutorials coming from the makers. Important: The Content Editor is still a beta.
The ranking is a 1v1 ladder; hotkey improvements and many smaller optimizations are also planned. You can find individual keywords in this context in the roadmap above. Balancing changes are said to be related to the Abbasid Dynasty, the Chinese and the Holy Roman Empire, among others.
Season 2 later this year will bring the next ranked season, assignable hotkeys, a map selection system, and other improvements.
