Last year, Microsoft released Age of Empires: Definitive Edition. For those who are unfamiliar, the Definitive Edition version of the game is essentially a remastered Age of Empires, where Microsoft has improved on the game in terms of its graphics where it included higher-resolution textures and also support for 4K.
For those who enjoyed Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, it seems that Microsoft will be continuing that trend and during its E3 2019 announcement, the company revealed Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. As expected, it will be similar to the first game where it will have its graphics improved upon as one of its features.
According to Microsoft, “Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition celebrates the 20th anniversary of one of the most popular strategy games ever with stunning 4K Ultra HD graphics, remastered audio and a whole new campaign – The Last Khans. Return to Reign in 2019.” The Age of Empires franchise has been a staple in the RTS community.
While we haven’t really seen new additions to the franchise in recent times, it’s good to see that Microsoft isn’t giving up on it yet by releasing the Definitive Editions. The game is currently set for a release later this year and gamers who are interested will be able to sign up to be part of the beta on Microsoft’s website.
