Age of Empires: Definitive Edition Achievement List Revealed

By Rebecca Smith,
There is less than two weeks to go before Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (2018) (Windows) is released, and it's about time we got an idea of what we can expect from the game's achievements. With that in mind, Microsoft has decided to reveal the list of tasks that players will have to complete if they want to go for the game's full 1000 Gamerscore. Unfortunately, none of the achievements have Gamerscore values, but I'm sure we'll be getting those shortly.


First we begin with the 10 campaign achievements. If you don't want any spoilers, I suggest you move on to the next table quickly.
