Age of Empires: Definitive Edition Release Date Confirmed

By Kevin Tavore, 9 months ago
Today was a pretty big day for the Age of Empires series. In fact, we learned in addition to this remaster, the other two games would be getting the same treatment. On top of that, we also got the announcement many fans had been waiting for: Age of Empires IV. But that wasn't all. We also got tons of new details on Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (Win 10). The game will launch with a ton of new features that you'd expect from a modern RTS while also staying true to its core. Here's what you can expect to be added:
  • Attack Move
  • 250-300 population cap
  • Rally Points Basic
  • Rally Points Contextual (Intelligent Villagers)
  • Grid default key layout
  • Select Idle Military
  • Select Idle Villagers
  • Unit queueing
  • Right-click mouse scroll

Then there was a trailer for the game, which confirmed the release date and set the stage a bit. If you wanna get hyped, this is what you watch:

If you're looking for further details, there was a pretty cool documentary talking about the making of the game and another showing off the game's lovely music:

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will launch exclusively on Windows 10 on October 19th.
