C’mon, all other news pales in comparison to this. Microsoft have announced Age of Empires Online.
I don’t think that any other game series has taken as much of my time as the Age of Empires series. Now, with the game going online and an awesome collection of new features, I fear that I may be doomed to sit at my PC forever!
Anyway, enough of that tosh. The game will allow players to create a living, growing online world to share with friends and rivals around the globe. Check out these features:
- A persistent online capitol city that lives and grows even when youâ€™re offline
- Cooperative multiplayer quests, trading and a level-based system that lets you progress at your own pace
- Fun, approachable style and storylines
- Free-to-play experiences via Games for Windows â€“ LIVE
