Age of Empires: Definitive Edition arrives on October 19


The teaser trailer does not reveal a whole lot, but it does pan across multiple civilizations during times of strife and turmoil, setting the tone for Age of Empires IV.

What we do know though is that it will be developed by Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III developer Relic Entertainment. It seems even more robust the Age of Empires II HD, and has me eager to jump back in due to these enhancements. Just like we created the Age of Empires: Definitive Edition to honor fans of the series and PC gamers everywhere, we wanted to commit to improving the entire franchise. The original game came out on October 15th, 1997, nearly exactly 20 years later. Microsoft Studios partnered with Relic Entertainment as they already have a good experience in developing great RTS games. We see everything from Roman soldiers and medieval knights to Native Americans and revolutionary fighters.

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is quite the remaster, adding fully remastered 4K visuals to make the game look better, an increased population limit to make battles more epic, enhanced pathfinding, better destruction technology, more zoom levels, an expanded UI, and a remastered orchestral soundtrack.
