Age of Empires: Definitive Edition official artwork and logo

After being delayed over and over again, Ages of Empires: Definitive Edition has now finally made its way to Windows 10. It brings with it greatly improved visuals and completely overhauled animations, an updated scenario builder and an easy way to share your maps, a reworked campaign with new narration and better pacing, and naturally, the return of online multiplayer.

If you're wondering what all of these improvements might look like in-game, wonder no more as Microsoft has just recently posted a launch trailer. It's not a very long video, but it'll give you a decent idea of what to expect from the Definitive Edition. Have a look:

I haven't had the time to play it myself so take the following with a few grains of salt, but it would appear that Age of Empires: Definitive Edition has been a successful remaster. There are still some technical issues that need to be ironed out, but other than that it seems to be an improved and polished version of the original Age of Empires - exactly what it should be. So if you have an interest in oldschool RTS games, and you don't mind some of the clunkiness that comes with its somewhat ancient design, then I'd say the Definitive Edition is well worth a look.

You can learn more, or just grab yourself a copy, by heading over to the official website. Have fun, and make sure to keep in mind that you will need Windows 10 in order to run it!
