Age of Empires 4 has been officially announced with Homeworld and Company of Heroes developer Relic Entertainment making it, while IP-owner Microsoft Studios will publish.
The third entry in Microsoft's PC strategy series was "a huge mistake", according to a key member of the development team.
Microsoft has unearthed a new expansion for Age of Empires III, which is due for release this autumn.
Age of Empires maker Ensemble Studios has "done a Blizzard" and banned "a batch" of players from playing its real-time strategy game online due to cheating.
The E3 trailer for Ensemble Studios' PC real-time strategy sequel Age of Empires III is now available for download.
The trailer gives you the chance to see AoE 3 in action, offering a minute and a half of both cinematic and in-game footage.
AoE III is set between 1500 and 1850 and sees you managing a European power struggling to explore, colonise and eventually conquer the Americas.
