We are finally now in the coming days before the Age of Empires: Definitive Edition launch, so I thought I would do a re-cap of what is in store for returning players or new ones that have missed the news.

Those that aren't aware, the classic real-time strategy game Age of Empires will be making its way back to gamers in the beautiful 4K. Not only are gamers going to receive a remastered AoE but they will also be gifted with "Rise of Rome" expansion pack, enhanced gameplay, better narration, 10 campaigns and 16 civilizations to play and conquer.

Veteran players that enjoyed the game when it was originally released 20 years ago will be glad to know that some of the cheats that they had fun with are fully functional, examples are: Gaia, BIGDADDY, BIG MOMMA, STORMBILLY and PHOTON MAN and more.

For players that are new to the game and want to jump into a classic RTS keep in mind Age of Empires will unfortunately not be releasing on Steam but instead on the Microsoft Store. Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will be releasing on February 20th on PC for $19.99.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
