Age of Empires II is a seminal piece of video game history. The title is one of the most popular strategy games to have come out, and the series has a passionate following of players. It's crazy to think that the game came out twenty years ago, but there's no better way to celebrate the game's influence on the genre and the countless hours of enjoyment that players experienced than with a remastered edition of the classic!
The re-release promises to bring the game back into vogue with its updated features. There are over two hundred hours of content that players can churn through, and the visuals are a stunning improvement. The game will play in 4K Ultra HD, and the audio has been completely reworked. There's even added content to the historical periods with "The Last Khans" as part of the package.
Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition will also support online play and streaming support to widen the gaming experience. If you want to see eleven minutes of gameplay with the beautiful new edition, check out the footage above.
