The Age of Empires IV RTS Spring Update will add 1v1 ranked battles. However, starting next week, players will be able to test this mode as part of the Ranked Seasons Closed Preview.
Closed testing of rating battles will last from January 20 to January 28, 2022, and in order to be able to take part, you must register in The Age Insider program.
This month, the developers also plan to release an update that will fix bugs and improve balance. These changes will be made based on user feedback.
