This is a total surprise! Team Forgotten Empires and Microsoft are developing an HD version of your beloved game, called... Age of Empires: Definitive Edition!



It has just been announced at the E3, and a trailer and screenshots have been released to the public. You can find them on the official website, https://www.ageofempires.com/media/, check it out now if you haven't done so already!

If you are excited by this, you can now also sign up for the closed beta version to playtest the game, which you can do here. Well, what are you waiting for?

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition version supports backwards compatibility, meaning all original works in our Granary/Downloads section will be compatible!

More to come, as soon as details are being revealed!

I actually do like the retouched textures for the tilesets. Escpecially the Asian Iron Age graphics look a lot more natural now.

Too bad this one won't come in a cereal box.

MS might just strike a deal with a cereal producing company in the future and offer a product code which you can then redeem.

Maybe it's only a fool who'll perilously journey out to what might not be there. But if you want to solve problems, you don't just solve the ones that are there, you find more and make more and go after the impossible ones.
The neanderthals never ventured into the unknown and they went extinct, so who are the fools?

Every unit has 32 angles?

That's awesome. Though from what I've seen most of those angles are used for turning, not in combat/walking.

Yes, every unit and in all animations. Also 30 frames per action:

Yeah, it would just be 8 directions for normal walking right? 32 angles seems like they want 2 'in between' phases for when a unit turns from North to North-East for example.
