If you head to the news, you won't find much on Age of Empires 5, nothing has been said about a potential release date. That's not surprising really, since Age of Empires 4 was released a over a year ago.

But we think that a new Age of Empires will launch eventually. The first and foremost reason is that the game industry is a business. Once the game decreases in popularity, developers try to release new updates or sequels to keep up the interest.

Even though Age of Empires 5 is far from an official release, here are a few things we'd love to see included in the game:

Modern history

Every Age of Empires title covers a specific historical period. In previous games, you have an opportunity to play in The Hundred Years War, the Norman conquest of England, and other historical scenes. But in the new Age of Empires, many people expect to see a new important period in the new world’s history. It might be the First World War, the Caribbean crisis, or other scenarios.

Mod support

Mod support is one of the best things to be added to video games. Adding modding capabilities to the game is a perfect opportunity to diversify the gameplay and attract more people to the game.

More platforms

One of the main problems of Age of Empires 4 is that it's only available on Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series consoles. And if you have Mac OS, PlayStation 5, or other Xbox consoles, it is impossible to enjoy AoE. Therefore, most people want to see the release of Age of Empires 5 not only on Xbox and PC but also on other devices.

More history

One of the main features of Age Empires 5 is that it's based on history. Each title in the game shows a period in the world’s history that can be enjoyed through real-time strategy. In the new Age Empires 5, people want to see even more historical aspects.

That's all there is to know about Age of Empires 5 so far. While you're here, feel free to turn on creativity and suggest your interesting ideas for Age of Empires 5. And while you are still here, make sure to check our list of the best free multiplayer games.
