This article is about the cheat codes in Age of Empires IV. For cheat codes in other games of the series, see cheat code.

Cheat codes were first introduced to Age of Empires IV with the Anniversary Edition. To use cheat codes, press Enter during game play to bring up a text box, enter the code and press Enter again. The codes are not case sensitive.

All cheat units are spawned from the player's main Town Center.

Entering any cheat codes will prevent the user from obtaining any achievements or masteries in that session. To use cheat codes in custom games, the option must be selected before start. A notification will appear in chat when used, and it will be marked on the timeline.
