‘Age of Empires IV’ will have open beta this weekend: so you can try it for free

October 28. The date as such does not say anything, but the thing changes if we say that it is the day in the ‘Age of Empires IV’, the new game of strategy in real time of Relic will be sent in PC. There is still a little over a month left to get the hang of the full delivery, but this weekend we will be able to test a forward thanks to the open beta.

And it is that from the September 17 at 7:00 p.m. to September 20 at 7:00 p.m. It will be possible to access the open beta of ‘Age of Empires IV’. It really is a technical stress test (to test the servers and see how they perform when there are many people connected), but be that as it may allow us to test the game before its launch.

Beta content will be focused on online multiplayer. We will be able to play against other connected players and, in fact, the company encourages us to do so since “the more data we obtain from the different games on various servers, the more measures our development team can take to prepare our systems for the big day.”

You can also play against artificial intelligence through the custom multiplayer lobby and try “Mission Zero” (aka the game’s tutorial). There will be four civilizations availablenamely: English, Chinese, Holy Roman Empire and the Abbasid Dynasty. Also five undetermined maps.

Chinese civilization.

Relic has done some changes from closed beta: The maximum distance that we can move the camera away has been changed, the balance in the English and Chinese civilizations has been improved and some bugs related to the graphics, audio and economy of the game have been optimized.

As we said before, the beta will be available from Friday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m. until Monday, September 20 at 7:00 p.m. The easiest way to sign up is by going to Steam and clicking on “Unirse a Age of Empires IV Technical Stress Test“. ‘Age of Empires IV’ will be released on October 28 and will be available from day one on Game Pass.
