Following the Age of Empires: Definitive Edition release early last year, Microsoft was finally able to announce during its Xbox E3 Briefing today that the enhanced version of the second title in the series will be releasing this fall on PC. Check out the brand new gameplay trailer for Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition above.
Note that this is completely separate from the Age of Empires II: HD Edition that released on Steam back in 2013. The Definitive Edition will arrive with 4K Ultra HD graphics, a remastered soundtrack, as well as new content, which will be three new campaigns and four civilizations that are being added under the name Last Khans. We can see a tiny gameplay clip of these new additions in the above trailer as well.
According to the developers behind the title, a beta for the title will kick off "very soon," and sign-ups for it are already available for those interested over on the Age of Empires website. There's still no word on Age of Empires IV that was announced a couple of years back, however.
Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is coming to Windows 10 via the Microsoft Store as well as Steam as previously announced. The new Xbox Game Pass PC subscription service will also receive the game at launch.
