Age of Empires IV just got a little bit better. Developer Relic Entertainment released a small patch recently, focused on bringing new features and bug fixes to the game. If you want new content, you must wait for over a month.

Two new civilizations, Ottomans and Malians, are coming to Age of Empires IV on October 25. You will also be able to try out these civilizations early during the next Public Update Preview.
