Remember Age of Empires 2? It’s only the game that first introduced me and countless others to the RTS genre and defined the first few years of my PC gaming life. Well it’s back and will be exclusively available on Steam in its updated HD format.
Complete with the Conquerors expansion pack, Age of Empires II HD will bring some other new features to the reboot aside from some lush new graphics. These include; multi-monitor enabled gameplay, Steam Workshop support and new multiplayer options. It will available to play from April 5th for anyone who pre-orders the game and from April 9th for everyone else. Currently pre-orders are discounted 10% at £13.49.
Personally I can’t wait for this release as my old copy (yes I still have the original stored in the attic) isn’t compatible with my current PC.
