Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition artwork for the Dynasties of India expansion

[Update]: Right on cue, Dynasties of India has now been unleashed!

Age of Empires II may be more than twenty years old at this point, but it doesn't seem to be showing any signs of slowing down. Its competitive scene is more vibrant than ever despite Age of Empires IV adding a bit of friendly competition, and now there's even a brand new expansion coming to help spice things up further.

Once it arrives this April 28th, Dynasties of India will bring with it three new playable civilizations to Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition (Bengalis, Dravidians and Gurjaras), three new and fully voice acted campaigns, as well as an assortment of new units, buildings and achievements to toy around with.

What these new factions look like in action and what they're really all about, that you can figure out trough the freshly posted trailer below. Just for good measure, I'll also include the brief descriptions that came with the announcement. Have a gander:

Bengalis — Navigate the winding rivers and dense jungles of Bengal as you build a thriving economy to fuel unstoppable armies of elephants. The Bengali unique unit is the Ratha, a sturdy chariot that can switch between melee and ranged attack modes.

Dravidians — Seize control of the lucrative Indian Ocean trade routes and utilize advanced metallurgy as you build one of the wealthiest sea empires of medieval Asia. The Dravidian unique units are the Urumi Swordsman, a warrior wielding a scathing flexible sword, and the Thirisadai, a massive vessel that dominates the high seas.

Gurjaras — Ride swift mounts across the fertile fields and open plains of western India and unleash diverse armies of sturdy warriors upon your enemies. The Gurjara unique units are the Shrivamsha Rider, a speedy cavalry unit that can dodge enemy attacks, and the Chakram Thrower, an infantry unit that unleashes volleys of deadly metal discs.

Once the Dynasties of India expansion arrives I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can learn a few more tidbits about it over at the official website.
