Age of Empires IV Gameplay Video Leaked
In the past few hours, a gameplay video with 17 minutes of gameplay has been leaked of Age of Empires IV, the new real-time strategy title, developed by Relic Entertainment and World’s Edge and published by Xbox Game Studios. For the time being, these first gameplay scenes do not appear to come from the beta, which was available earlier this month.
It is worth mentioning that the release date of Age of Empires IV was also revealed in the course of the last E3 2021 event, with very few images regarding the gameplay, leaving all the fans anxiously waiting for a new trailer. As it can be viewed, this video has not yet been officially released but this leak, which can be seen at the bottom of this article, seems to have been recorded by a recent version.
The information regarding that the leaked material not being a beta version comes from the insider Idle Slot, who posted it on his Twitter profile, which we do not know if it will remain on YouTube or if it will be removed.

In the new gameplay video, players can see some new mechanics, city construction, and a new graphical interface. It should be noted that the closed beta, which began on August 5, ended 11 days later giving users the opportunity to preview the game.
As it was confirmed already, through the Xbox Game Pass service Age of Empires IV will be available on day one for free to all of its subscribers. At the moment, the studio has not released more information nor new trailers for the title, leaving all fans eagerly awaiting.
Since it is the first leaked gameplay video of Age of Empires IV, it may be possible that the development team will soon follow it by revealing an official trailer, most probably at the Gamescom Opening Night Live 2021 that will be held on August 25th.
