If you’ve been gaming since the 1990s or early 2000s, you might have already heard of ‘Age of Empires.’ Along with Starcraft and Quake, Age of Empires was one of the most popular PC games at the turn of the millennium, long before consoles and smartphones were invented.
For the uninitiated, Age of Empires is a historical real-time strategy game where players can control an “empire” as well as historical characters such as Genghis Khan and Joan of Arc. Players can wage war against an AI player or against other players in a local network or through the Internet.
Microsoft has announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) game trade show in Los Angeles that the ‘Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition’ will be launched this fall (or around October). This version of the classic real-time strategy game will include 4K support and fully remastered audio. A new campaign called “The Last Khans” will also be included. Look at the gameplay trailer below:
If you’re tired of playing battle royale games, then you might want to give ‘Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition’ a try. You can sign up to play the beta at ageofempires.com.
