A Technology age represents a segment of the Technology tree. Technologies within an age are only accessible after a specified number of technologies have been discovered, as detailed below. The age mechanism is designed to prevent a civilization from bee-lining to a critical technology but instead to consider a more nuanced strategy.
- Age of Expansion - Default starting age.
- Age of War - Second stage, requires unlocking 12 technologies.
- Age of Ascension - Third stage, achieved after unlocking 100 technologies.
- Age of Victory - The unlabeled fourth stage consisting of capstone technologies. Achieved after unlocking 180 technologies.
