Next week on Monday, August 21 at 9:00 p.m. CEST, 12:00 p.m. PDT we’ll get a first-look and hands-on preview with the recently announced Age of Empires: Definitive Edition at gamescom 2017. And that’s not all — we’ll be revealing some exciting news about the Age of Empires franchise and more.
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.
We’ll have more details to share with you soon after the livestream event at gamescom on Monday, August 21.
