Rise of Kingdoms

Age of Empires Mobile is a spin-off of the best-selling RTS series, launched in 1997. This version was prepared for mobile devices. The game is the result of a collaboration between the World’s Edge team, which has been overseeing the development of the series since 2019, and TiMi Studios.

The latter's portfolio includes projects such as Call of Duty: Mobile, Pokemon Unite and Metal Slug: Awakening, but also Return to Empire that's very popular in China. That last title was a very clear inspiration for the authors. The game is distributed in a free-to-play model with microtransactions.


The foundation of Age of Empires Mobile is based on the gameplay scheme developed for the earlier parts of the series. However, the whole thing has been adapted for mobile gaming, which means not only changed control schemes, but also new mechanics.

The game allows us to take control of one of the civilizations (such as China, Rome, the Franks, or Byzantium), which are diversified in terms of appearance and the combat capabilities of their armies. Watching the action from a bird's eye view, we gather resources, develop new technologies and improvements, expand and fortify our base, and also deploy soldiers, whose task is to defend our lands from outside attacks or conquer new territories.

We can lead both infantry and cavalry into battle, as well as ships and war machines. In addition, the heroes we choose have an impact on the combat potential of our forces. The game allows us to recruit historical characters (such as Leonidas, Julius Caesar or Joan of Arc) and fictional characters (like Mulan). Each of them has individual attributes and skills, and their proper use can change the fate of many battles.

The game has implemented a real-time combat system, reminiscent of battles from the main parts of the series, in which we pick formations and indicate next attack targets for our armies. On the battlefield, the key to success is the use of effective tactics, based on the analysis of the topography of the terrain, the number of enemy troops, and the fortifications they have erected.

It does not end there, because at selected moments the game also offers a turn-based mode in which small units and the heroes at their head face each other.There is a place for specific duels in which two armies face each other and then charge at each other. Using their special skills they try to defeat the enemies.

Game modes

Age of Empires Mobile can be played alone or in multiplayer mode. The game allows for both "intimate" skirmishes and military operations in which hundreds of players take part.
