Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition will be released this fall. Microsoft announced the news at the Xbox E3 2019 briefing and released a short trailer featuring an improved and updated version of the classic RTS, which was the backbone of the strategy gaming boom in the late 1990s and early 1990s. the one from 2000.
We took a look at the gameplay for the first time and discovered new units and animations, seemingly redesigned buildings with higher frame rates, and new destruction mechanisms. The world itself appears to be benefiting from a major facelift of the lush, fully active flora and fauna.
Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition features 4K Ultra HD graphics, a fully remastered soundtrack and game audio, as well as a new "The Last Khans" single player component, containing three new campaigns and four newly created civilizations, Bulgarians, Kumans, Lithuanians and Tatars. All 24 battle scenes in the
original expansion pack, plus various highlights that trace the return of medieval history, as well as updated forms, and 35 existing civilizations that make up the title. Microsoft promised more than 200 hours of continuous gaming time. As the mainstay of the game, the multiplayer component is of course part of the package.
In addition, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition will usher in a number of quality of life improvements, such as automatic farm reset, new audience mode, tournament features, and native streaming support. We also learned that it will support cross-play between Steam and the Microsoft Store.
