Age of Empires 4 shows off naval warfare

By Heidi Nicholas,
Relic Entertainment has dropped a few new trailers for Age of Empires IV, showing off a brief glimpse of naval warfare and the Abbasid Dynasty.

It's just a brief look at naval combat, with a glimpse at a larger naval battle and a skirmish close to the coast, along with a quick look at a few of the game's specialised units. Over on the Age of Empires IV subreddit, the naval warfare trailer has met with a mixed reaction from players — some are pleased with the look of naval combat, while others prefer the graphics of the older Age of Empire games over the look of Age of Empires IV. We also had a brief look at the camel riders and the House of Wisdom of the Abbasid Dynasty in the trailer below:

We've still got a few months to go until Age of Empires IV launches Xbox Game Pass for PC on October 28th, so hopefully we'll see a few more in-depth trailers or some gameplay footage before then. In the meantime, what do you think? Are you looking forward to naval battles in Age of Empires IV? Let us know in the comments!
