While millions of people across the US are staring up towards the sky as the sun is covered by the moon, Microsoft will be having a livestream of the new Age of Empires Definitive Edition. Age of Empires has been a favorite of mine since it was first released. I’m glad it’s coming back in a great new way. I’m not saying it’s bad timing for this livestream….. but, it’s bad timing.
20 years after its launch on PC in 1997, we announced at E3 2017 that Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is coming exclusively to Windows 10, with a closed beta available for registration now. Created as an homage to fans of the series and PC gamers everywhere, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will bring back the original Age of Empires and its Rise of Rome expansion with 16 civilizations to explore, all the while including beautifully enhanced graphics, entirely re-orchestrated soundtrack, brand-new narrative, major gameplay improvements, Xbox Live support for multiplayer, and more.
