The Delhi Sultanate is a civilization that becomes stronger over time. They are the strongest when it comes to research and defense. Among other civilizations, the Delhi Sultanate is the most technically advanced. They have zero cost on resources when researching technology, and Scholars help speed up the process.

The English have powerful defenses reinforced by their archery units, with special mention to the Longbowman. They have a network of castles (Town Centers, Outposts, Towers, and Keeps) that trigger an alarm when enemies approach. They reign supreme in any match as their Keep produces all units.

Their food economy sustains them through the Ages, and this is thanks to cheaper farms. This then allows them to expand upgrades and armies.

If there’s one civilization you should fear in battle, it’s the Mongols. This civilization aggressively produces military units, so when facing against them, it’s best to work on your defenses early on. They are a nomadic civilization, so they can move their bases.

Their economy is built through unique buildings. They use resources to pursue world domination by building a strong army even in small numbers.

The French are known for their cavalry. Their strength lies in their army of knights, gunpowder siege weapons, and advantages in trade. French Traders are able to bring back any resources they need; an advantage when there’s a shortage. Their economy is also strong, all thanks to its Town Center which produces units quicker with each Age.

Its cavalry can break enemy lines and bring bonus damage. Its units also have access to upgrades from special bonuses for health to defense.


Abbasid Dynasty

The Abbasid Dynasty’s House of Wisdom is the center of this civilization. This provides upgrade opportunities, and as buildings are built around it, their Golden Age rate increases which in turn brings increases to gather, research, and production rates. Its growth is uninterrupted due to its unique ability to construct Landmarks and advance through the ages without the need to assign active villagers.

This civilization also has Camel Archers and Camel Riders which are unique to them.


Holy Roman Empire

The Holy Roman Empire’s infantry is its strength. You would have to think twice before facing them in battle because they recover quickly from attacks, and its Landsknechte can deal huge damage with its devastating area-of-effect capability. Their structures are highly durable and difficult to destroy due to enhancements from upgrades, making them hard to defeat.

Its unique religious unit, the Prelate, increases its villagers’ gather rate which helps them ramp up their economy quickly.

  Rus    age of empires 4 rus  

The Rus are adept in the wild, and are highly-skilled hunters. They get huge benefits from their environment, especially when it comes to gathering resources to quickly build a strong economy. Their Hunting Cabin acts as a standard mill, and at the same time they get steady Gold incomes from it.

Its defenses are the most powerful early on in the game. They are mostly known for their mounted Warrior Monk that buffs surrounding units, as well as its powerful gunpowder unit called the Streltsy.
