‘Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition’ Coming Out This Fall, Looks Gorgeous
Age of Empires 2 remains one of the best loved, if not best, strategy games of all time. Though it starting to look a little long in tooth, what with it now being nearly 20 years old, so it's about time it got the full definitive edition remaster treatment.
Revealed on stage during Microsoft's Xbox E3 conference, the Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition is a thing of beauty. It now runs in 4K resolution, has completely remastered audio (I can't wait to hear what a talented sound engineer armed with the latest in audio technology has been able to do with the classic Wololo chant), and from the looks of things in the trailer - new destruction animations. Lovely stuff.
Biggest of all, though, is that Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition will be shipping with a new single player campaign: The Last Khans.
You can see a snippet of it in action in the trailer below:
The good new is that we don't need to wait all that long to play it, either. The snazzy as anything Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition is going to be released this fall.

Now if only Microsoft can go ahead and show off Age of Empires 4, I can go to bed after this conference happy. We know Microsoft is working on it and, what with its recent push for Xbox Game Pass PC, now would be a great time to show it off. I'd just like to know what time period it covers. That's a lie, I'd like to know a lot more, but I can make peace with just knowing the time period.
