While several key features that improve cosmetic aspects have been carried forward to Age of Empires IV, One fan-favorite trait missing in the latest installment is the ability to rotate a building in Age of Empires IV. Still, You can enjoy the beauty of any Landmark in its full glory by rotating around it instead of rotating it!
Rotating around any Buildings
To rotate around any buildings, follow the steps given below.
- Launch and hop inside any game of your choice.
- Now, press and hold Alt and move your mouse. You will be able to rotate and focus around anything on the map.
- You can also zoom while rotating. To do this, scroll upward while moving.
Does It Affect Gameplay Elements?
The developers have not adapted a tile-based grid system, as seen in Age of Empires 3. Nevertheless, this does not affect or degrade gameplay in any way, as all the buildings perform their respective operations regardless of their direction. For example, a watchtower attacks enemies from every direction irrespective of its current facing angle.
Remember, the feature is not available as of now but can be included in a future patch. Still, we have to wait for any official announcement from the developer's side.
