The update includes new civilisations, challenges, achievements, features, and more. “Whether you’re interested in creating new strategies with the Malians and Ottomans, building your skillset with challenges, competing in 1v1 Solo Ranked or competing with friends in the all-new Team Ranked, or earning a set of Age-themed rewards, there’s something for every playstyle coming your way with the Season Three: Anniversary,” the company said.
Age of Empires is also heading into the console age, as the games will hit Xbox consoles in 2023. The company announced that two games from the series will launch on console: Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition arrives on Xbox on January 31, 2023, with Age of Empires IV coming to consoles later in the year.
