As Age of Empires continues to enjoy a resurgence of late, Microsoft has seen fit to deliver even more of the classic RTS, today releasing Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition - Return of Rome to the retail landscape. On top of a re-release of the classic game this expansion also features loads of new content.
New Game Features:
Three new, fully voiced campaigns: The Sumerian-focused Sargon of Akkad, the Macedonian-focused Pyrrhus of Epirus, and the Roman-focused Trajan
All 16 of the original Age of Empires civilisations, along with the brand-new Lac Viet civilisation
The long-requested option to include Romans in the single-player and unranked multiplayer modes for Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. A future update will allow for Romans to be used in ranked multiplayer games
The new D3 game mode, inspired by a ruleset made popular in the Age of Empires Vietnamese esports scene
And more, such as new quality-of-life upgrades and features!
The expansion is currently just $20 dollarydoos on Steam while the base game is available on Game Pass for PC or for $22 dollars on Steam, or for less than $40 as a bundle, which when you consider the amount of content is pretty good bang for your buck.
