GS:Microsoft reveals updated version of RTS coming exclusively to Steam April 9; includes the Conquerors expansion.
Oh this will be mine. I really hope this is a sign of Microsoft reviving the franchise.
I'm glad they went the Steam route instead of the Games for Windows - LIVE route.
Never played single-player. I always liked normal mode, big map, and you vs cpu
Best of all, it has multiplayer.
OMG!!!! My favorite series of all time. I don't have a PC....Therefore I'm now saving up for a PC JUST for this game. That is right....$800 just for this game. I mean I'll play some other old classics and probably the new Total War game, but mainly just for Age of Empires.
you don't even have an old laptop lying around?
I have a macbook pro from 2007 that I'm currently using. My old PC's motherboard died when I realized I'd been using an under powered power supply for 4 years. It finally caught up and I haven't had one since but I used to PC game as much or more than anything. 40% of that was the Age of Empires series.
A PC will last though and you could just "upgrade next time" :P
Only reason I have the Mac is for Logic Pro / making music, which it does very well. It's awful for gaming, as in it can't even run Age 2 properly without almost overheating. Custom building a PC maybe this summer so I don't have to worry about this for another 5+ years.
Say whatever you want, this is by far the best strategy game! "Aegis" "How do you turn this on " at the end of the video ;)
Too bad Ensemble isn't around to make more. They go and make Ensemble create a console RTS that actual plays AND sells well, and then they split them up...sigh...
Breaking up Ensemble was one move I didn't like. I believe a large part of the team was kept and added to another team. Hopefully they will get back to RTSs.
Ensemble is just on the Bungie route. Doing its own thing. New studio is called Robot Entertainment. Completely free of Microsoft's domain, but they lack big money so they are making Orcs must die series. Which isn't a bad little series of tower defense games. http://www.robotentertainme... First line on the page states this. ------------- Based in Plano, Texas, Robot Entertainment is a world-class independent game development studio owned and operated by many of the founders of Ensemble Studios.
cheese steak jimmy's rock on robin hood and lumberjack still remember these codes to get resources loved this game great times
A sudden influx of food has saved me many times. My favourite is "HOW DO YOU TURN THIS ON" That car defending my main gate saved me.
Please follow with Age of Mythology.
oh yes! I've been trying for so long to get my starcraft/dota playing friends to try out aom, if it's remastered they'll have no more excuse.
One can only dream @aquamala HD hasn't meant anything in a while lol
silly to call it "HD" when the original already had higher resolution than 720p. but ok looking forward to it.
Pretty sure it's meant for the textures and modern HUD/GUI scale , screen size doesn't mean anything.
Sure, but at least it gets multiplayer back in it. Hard times dealing with side sites to get into a game these days HD will make it easy again to go online. MSN Gaming Zone was the first game lobby system before XBL and all of that other stuff even gamespy I believe. Some have issues with HD Resolutions on the old game on the newer versions of windows. So its a plus if all of those are fixed.
Wololo! My body is ready!
looks identical to the classic game
Omg, the nostalgia-LAN memories with friends :') such a classic along with age of mythology!
Since it will be excluvivly for than than that mean no GFWL.
Nice, Steam workshop support
wtf its already in HD (1024p), and with mods you can play it up to 1080p
It has better textures now.
barely. Microsoft is milking this game
So than every HD collection Sony makes is milking the game.
Im so getting this!
There goes my life again!
Just play SC
Back to Childhood! COME ON E-SPORTS pick this up to go against SC2 let's go!
I just want the game breaking cheats to be back. That damn car saved my live on more than one occasion.
I have Age of Empires 3, I never played this one, should I pick this up? Maybe I should research it a little more.
The answer is yes. This game + Starcraft established RTS genre in multiplayer arena. Its one of a kind. Single player is also awesome. If you like RTS then you need to play this. Its only a fraction of the cost of a new RTS game. Its worth it all around. :)
Tease for Age 4?
There goes my social life.
Nice move MS , release age of empire on Steam (and not the windows store) for people to play and remember how awesome the game is, then at e3 announce a sequel for the Xbox720 that will feature full control using Kinect , and you have got the attention of the hardcore PC gamers toward your controversial device. Age of Empires (working title) Xbox720 confirmed. mark this.
Possibly. Its system specs are reasonable for the rumored X720 specs. I would still want my mouse and keyboard though.
this is awesome news, out of nowhere, love the multi screen idea
www.voobly.com will be Supporting Age of Empires II HD for online :) Voobly Brings back the Old msn zone CD Rom games which the Wide Screen is Free and Anti-cheat is built in... Game rangers has 100% Hackers..
