6-foot, 9-inch ‘The Mountain’ joins medieval madness for upcoming launch of Age of Empires IV

What can you do while waiting for the Oct. 28 launch of Age of Empires IV? Join the pre-launch hijinks of course.

The World’s Edge team behind the game has booked a castle and built a giant fully functional trebuchet, which it will use to fling a load of assorted items including armor, a sheep (plushie-form only; no animals will be harmed) and other ammunition. Joining the fun is former World’s Strongest Man and star of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, a.k.a. The Mountain.

Head over to Xbox Wire to read all about it and find out how to watch the festivities on the Xbox YouTube channel.
