    Steam Community will form, the game is exclusively on Steam and it is incorporated with Steam Multiplayer(eg. invite friends right from Steam) and Steam Workshop for custom maps, this will make the game SO GODDAMN GOOD, browse player-made maps freely in the workshop and play them, can't wait <3.

    Guys. Don't worry about the graphics.

    It's on steam now.

    That means...

    CONVINIENT MULTIPLAYER.

    I get it, apparently it was a huge hit back in the day but I think it's just lazy cash crab. They should make a sequel or a remake instead of tying a corpse to a pole to make it look alive again.
    I dunno this was a great game Iwould really hate to see sequels unless they can stay true to the original and maintain roughly the same Visuals/UI
    In my opinion I would rather see a shit ton of new expansion packs adding new scenarios/civilizations/historical events as well as revisiting the civilizations found in the first age of empires game.

    I saw that the last time I logged into Steam, and almost had a heart attack lol. I was really big into that game when I first got into the Navy...we'd have LAN parties and stuff. I may have to buy the 4-pack and get some friends in on this.

    So... they changed the maximum resolution, which takes all of 30 seconds for anyone to do by downloading a FREE mod and are reselling it?

    19 dollars is pretty expensive for a game this old.

    Well, this seems neat, but at the same time Forgotten Empires sort of gave me what i needed already when it comes to AoE2. I might get it though, if friends get it, then we'll be able to do some multiplayer stuff. But so far it looks as if i'll stick with the unofficial expansion.

    That's absolutely hilarious considering there are far, far, FAR more games on the market right now that are high fantasy than there are sci-fi, especially RTS games. I'm pining for the exact opposite of you - GIEF MOAR SCI-FI.

    Indeed, we could use a really good sci-fi RTS, competition is highly needed.

    10% off until launch!
    I might have a visual impairment but I still think it looks terrible =p
    But I've had a lot of fun with AoE2, A LOT.

    I wonder why they do this for AoE2 and nothing for AoE3

    I remember a time when there were plenty of RTS games, it was a better time

    AoE2 has a lot more followers than AoE3. Besides, AoE3 runs well enough on today's systems.

    Halleluyer!

    But for real this game was played for hours on end from when it launched up until...oh about 3 years ago. Very excited!

    Man, they add in working multiplayer and remove comparability issues and all people can focus on is whining about how the game isn't Battlefield level graphics.

    Plus according to MS there's more to be announced.

    That mod doesn't make the UI smaller, half your screen is taken up by the bottom bar.

    Resies pretty much summed it up. Working multiplayer and no comp. issues alone is already making the game worth the money.
    All I would ever want and need is a hug.

    Ever thought with the money they'll make from this that they could make another Age of Empires? If it's a cash grab fair enough, you're indirectly (directly maybe? XD) funding them towards future projects if you think about it.
    The Runaway. I love my new nickname. Is there a picture of me? Does it look good?

    I'd be fine with another AoE game.

    HD "remakes" should be handed out for free to people who bought the original game back in the day.
    Otherwise, it does come out as a half-assed attempt at cashing in nostalgia.

    So, where's the HD? I hardly see any upgrade.

    If this gains enough sales, and they did create a new AoE game, I hope it is nothing like AoE3, which was a horrible game compared to 2. Only thing I liked about AoE3 was the Warchiefs expansion. I would always play the Lakota, although not having any walls available for construction sucked.

    Although 19 bucks is a bit high. I can get the original for 9 (which is what I did a few years ago, as I had lost my original ones).
