Lincoln’s famous Castle and Steep Hill feature in footage for the new Age of Empire IV video game which is due to be released this autumn.
Age of Empires IV is being developed by Relic Entertainment. The game is described as taking players “on a journey through the ages as they command influential leaders, build expansive kingdoms, and fight some of the most critical battles of the Middle Ages”.
At the start of the Norman campaign, which is just one of four in the game, William of Normandy “sets forth on the hard-fought road to conquer England and become its new king”. Lincoln Castle and Steep Hill are shown in the ‘Norman Campaign Reveal’.
The other civilisations you’ll be able to play in are Chinese, Delhi Sultanate and Mongols.
IGN contributor and Age of Empires superfan Leana Hafer got a first look and the game and a chance to talk to the development team at Relic.
She shared her thoughts and what she learned in a video uploaded to YouTube, including about the Norman campaign which shows footage appearing to represent Lincoln.
