PC Games 12/21 mit Titelthema Age of Empires 4, Test zu Guardians of the Galaxy u. v. m.

Fans had to wait more than 15 years for a successor to the third Age of Empires, meanwhile the former developers are history and the genre real-time strategy has been buried ten times. Fortunately, however, there is Relic Entertainment, who are currently not only working on a new Company of Heroes, but are now celebrating their personal entry into the series with Age of Empires 4. We will of course take a close look at the mammoth strategy game and tell you in the test whether the wait was totally worth it!

Surprise: After Marvel’s Avengers certainly had its qualities, but ultimately had a difficult time with most fans due to the Games-as-a-Service orientation or even failed completely, Publisher Square is concentrating on Guardians of the Galaxy Closed solo experience – without a multiplayer part, without DLCs, without add-ons. In our test, we found that it works brilliantly and also comes with an extremely great story. You can read what else the title can do from page 40.

In addition to some other cool tests, such as the humorous Steep successor Riders Republic, the medieval survival sim Medieval Dynasty or the third part of the horror series The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes, we also have some preview topics for you . So we take a look at the last beta for Battlefield 2042, before our test is soon on the website (and in the next issue), the developers let us know the new content of Final Fantasy 14, which has been postponed to December again at short notice: Endwalkers show and drive – matching our full version – a few more laps across the field in Farming Simulator 22. It gets adventurous in the magazine part. There we not only shed light on the history of the adventure genre, but also dedicate ourselves to Tim Schafer as part of our icon series. And anyone who has bought the extended edition can order their field despite the frosty temperatures: With our Ambassador Edition for Farming Simulator 17 you can also get a taste of the popular series.

These topics await you in PC Games 12/21:
