Now Microsoft has introduced a roadmap and thus the plan for the next six months. In our test, we call the game as unfortunately not brave enough and is too safe on number. Maybe the upcoming updates can change something.

Even in the winter of this year, there should be more than 100 changes in the range of balancing, the readability of the minimal should be improved and the interface of the Chinese dynasty gets an update.

Add-ons for Age of Empire 4
At the topic DLC extensions we unfortunately still stilt in the dark. Here the developers of Relic Entertainment quasi did not publish any information. One thing can be sure. Extensions will come into play, that s just a matter of time.
As early as 2019, Microsoft announced that they convince the fans Middles and do without microtransactions. You want to resort to the ideas and feedback on the community as well as the regular updates.
Strengthening cooperation with the fans and the waiver of microtransactions are welcome, provided the developers will keep their word.
What do you think about the roadmap? Did you miss something or are you satisfied?
