Age of Empires II: Age of Kings Summary
There are doings afoot over at Microsoft's Redmond campus as they want a senior games developer to join their team who are working on "an established and well-loved" strategy franchise. It's a AAA project.
No Windows Phone exclusive nonsense presumably, and PC might be getting some Microsoft love after all. Age of Empires is Microsoft's strategy flagship series.
The classic RTS game by Ensemble Studios is returning with an HD remake courtesy of Hidden Path Entertainment, as Age of Empires II HD is hitting Steam on the 9th April.
Age of Empires II fans can rejoice as the unofficial expansion Age of Empires II: Forgotten Empires is now available. Age of Empires II: The Conquerors is required to play the expansion.
Microsoft Game Studios has just announced that Robot Entertainment is developing Age of Empires Online, with beta signups now going live.
This was the project thought of as 'Spartan'. AOE Online gives us a "persistent online capitol city" that we can grow and nurture while conquering.
