|Age Overview||Units and Buildings||History|
The Modern Age is the seventh age a player can reach in Rise of Nations. It can be reached after any four additional technologies are researched through the Library (twenty-two in total), and costs 3750 Knowledge and 1500 Oil.
After advancing to the Modern Age, players are given a new palette of buildings to build, technologies to research, and units to create. Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) become prevalent in the game, although they are still in their infancy and have both limited range and striking power. Air Forces also become more prevalent as player can build fighters and bombers to harass the enemy, although they still have fairly limited range.
