Microsoft revealed two brand new trailers of its upcoming strategy game Age of Empires IV.
Both trailers focus on showing implements of defense and destruction that you’ll be able to use in the game.
Specifically, we see Nest of Bees Rockets and Palings, taking care respectively of defense and offense.
You can find both videos below.
