    So, if you're like me, popped everything else, and somehow missed this, here is how I got it.

    Set up a skirmish and set it to Supremacy (you are unable to get past age IV in a "default" deathmatch). Set the starting age to Nomad (others have reported that it doesn't pop unless you start here, thanks @ObeyedDragon!).

    Once you're in, click on your Town Center and keep advancing your age. To advance to the Imperial age, I believe you will need 4,000 Food and 4,000 Gold.

    To make things go quite a bit quicker, press Enter and submit the following cheats:

    A whole lot of love
    -- This will give you a ton of resources
    Speed always wins
    -- Instant build/research

    Once, I advanced to the Imperial age, it popped for me immediately. Though, I have noticed, I will get the notification on my phone (through the Xbox app) significantly faster than I will on my PC (if at all).

    If you see a way to improve this guide or want further clarification, leave a comment! Thanks!

    codomojumpNot sure, I couldn't figure it out until I found something in the Wiki saying that default Deathmatch was limited to age IV. I did a ton of Supremacy matches for the other achievements so I'm a bit surprised it didn't unlock previously.

    I would be very surprised if you couldn't unlock this in the Campaigns as well, but I didn't care for them when I played this game originally so I just cheesed through it with the cheats suggested in the other solutions.

    ObeyedDragonI think the starting age does mather. I followd your guide but started as nomads. It popped when i advanced to the Imperial age.

    codomojumpI also started at Nomad but didn't think anything of it. Thanks for the feedback @ObeyedDragon! I updated the solution accordingly.
