The real-time strategy game has brought some important changes to the game that will definitely improve the experience for all players, with an improved minimap and buffs for the Spearman class. The update actually came a bit earlier than fans might have anticipated, as pointed out by Age of Empires IV route.
However, these are not just some basic balance updates. It’s a big update that brings over 100 balance changes to different parts of the game and fixes many of the game’s UI issues. These updates are for fans, as many of these changes are made from feedback. Developers even distinguish this new build as an update from a patch, as the developers define an update as “anything with a larger number of changes.” Talking about the user interface, the player is also very important to the minimap. The update resolves issues with icon changes. It shrinks the icon size, turns the fish icon “slightly blue”, and increases the size of the main Town Center.
Spearman units are buffed when facing Cavalry. As a general change, its bonus damage against Cavalry units has been increased from 3 to 3.5 times the base damage. This means that Rank I Invalids’ damage has been increased from 12 to 15, while Rank IV can deal 28 damage compared to 22.

Regarding balance changes, Balance Lead Eric Wrobel gave an in-depth explanation of all the changes in the game (you can see the official list of changes on Official website here.):
“In Age of Empires IV, our goal is to provide high impact unit counters and ensure that most powerful and successful armies consist of diverse combinations of units. This encourages players to constantly scout each other’s towns to get updates on the types of units their opponent(s) are making and unleash devastating counters! Our balance updates revolve around making sure our core unit list and unique units and technologies are working effectively to align with this vision. ”
Other major changes include the addition of player scores in the game. It will not be a required addition and can be enabled by players who want them. You can also view the map after the match.
