Age of Empires 4 prepares its guns
Shanon Loftis, CEO of World’s Edge Studio dedicated an entry in the Age of Empires official blog describing some new features of the fourth numbered installment of the saga:
“I don’t want them to envy us, but we play (Age of Empires 4, of course) every day, in Washington and Vancouver. Developing an RTS is a lot of fun: it takes time to create the different systems (AI, economy, rendering, etc.) and also a long time to put everything together, but when you do, you suddenly get a game. Of course you have to. tweak it and make some adjustments, but the gist is ready. “
We don’t yet know when we will receive the game, but Loftis’ statements give us hope of commanding our armies in the near future.
