It was in June last year when we brought you word that Age of Empires, the real time strategy (RTS) game which was pretty solid and fun to play, but somehow was overshadowed by the likes of Blizzard’s StarCraft back in the day, would be making a splash on iOS and Android platforms then. Well, fast forward to nearly a year down the road, and we have Microsoft working to expand their Age of Empires real time strategy game franchise to the iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms, where it will be known as Age of Empires: World Domination.
Do you think that the title itself is pretty apt, considering how these are the three major mobile platforms that are in the market at the moment? Assuming the game takes off as planned, will it become a worldwide hit for it to “dominate” the rest of the mobile gaming market app charts? Only time will be able to tell, but in the mean time, you might want to check out the game’s trailer above.
Age of Empires: World Domination is being developed by Japan-based KLab, and early gameplay footage does indicate that this will be a true blue RTS, although the game mechanics and interaction using a touchscreen might take some getting used to.
