First civilization for the new Expansion announced!

During the development of the new Age of Empires II expansion, the Forgotten Empires team will be writing a regular dev blog to keep you up to speed on the latest bits and bops on the new content we're working on.

The first dev blog focuses on how we went about picking the new civilizations and also reveals the first one!



With only this one screenshot to go by, we can reveal the civilization to field the Camel Archers will be the Berbers. The Berbers (~700 AD) will be a Cavalry and Naval civilization, featuring 2 unique units and a unique technology that affects their whole team. Additionally, they'll be the protagonists in a whole new campaign.

Age of Empires II – The path forward

Ryan Chaply here (aka Ryz0n) - the producer on AOE II HD - and we've got a big announcement. It’s hard to believe, but April 9th marks the two year anniversary since the release of Age of Empires II: HD on Steam. In those two years, players have amassed over 10,000 items in the Steam Workshop, and spend more than fifty million hours building armies, converting units, and chopping trees. In fact, more people have played over 50 hours in AOE II than the entire population of Little Rock – the state capital of Arkansas. It’s clear that the franchise has a hugely dedicated user base, and today I’m excited to talk about where we’ll be taking the title through 2015.

Unfortunately this announcement is too long to post in here! So please head to this announcement thread to read about the most recent patch, what lies ahead, and a teaser of for new content coming to AOE II: HD

Ragazzi, me lo ricordavo bello e adesso in HD è ancora più bello. Grazie mille alla Microsoft e a Steam che ce lo rende disponibile.
Bellissime campagne. L'unica pecca è il multiplayer, per vincere o si gioca con uno forte oppure devi avere un sacco di esperienza.

When I was a child I would play this game. Now I bought it a second time because I want to be a child again... This is a game where you make an Empire that lasts through the Ages... Also when a friend of mine was telling me about this game when I was in third grade, he thought that it was called Agent Vampires. A game that has nothing to do with agents or vampires. Anyway, good game if you have friends who also want to be kids again.

Cosa dire, AoE è un must! Consigliato per chi ci ha giocato appena uscito e per chi si vuole avvicinare la prima volta ad un gioco di strategia. Controlli semplici ed intuitivi, partite divertenti e che possono durare da una mezz'ora fino a qualche ora, possibilità di giocare online con amici a svariate modalità, da quelle più classiche a quelle più "particolari". Per quanto costa è uno degli affaroni migliori su Steam! :D

Age of Empires II è un classico senza tempo, un punto di riferimento imprescindibile nel campo dei videogiochi strategici in tempo reale. La HD Edition rende omaggio a tale leggendario titolo incorporando il supporto completo per Steam e poco altro: quanto basta, tuttavia, per garantire ore e ore di divertimento. Ma riassumiamo pregi e difetti in un pratico elenco.
I pregi:
  • È Age of Empires II in tutta la sua eterna gloria, perdiana.
  • Sono compresi i contenuti sia del gioco originale, The Age of Kings, che dell’espansione The Conquerors, per un totale di diciotto civiltà.
  • Il supporto online permette non solo di organizzare agevolmente battaglie, ma anche di salvarle e caricarle in un secondo tempo.
  • Lo Steam Workshop straripa di contenuti!
  • Il divertimento con gli amici è semplicemente infinito.
  • Rogan?
I difetti:
  • La cosiddetta HD Edition non aggiunge un tubo di niente in alta definizione: le differenze rispetto all’originale, sia in per quanto riguarda il comparto grafico che per le meccaniche di gioco, sono irrisorie. Questo, tuttavia, può anche essere interpretato come un pregio.
  • Nel corso di alcune partite online si possono riscontrare notevoli problemi di lag.
  • Ammesso che vi interessino, gli achievement sono quanto mai seccanti e per la maggior parte richiedono un numero esorbitante di partite per essere completati («Hai condotto la tale civiltà alla vittoria cinquanta volte», «Hai sconfitto la talaltra civilità in battaglia ben cento volte» eccetera).
  • Wololo!
In conclusione, non posso che consigliare vivamente Age of Empires II: HD Edition a tutti, veterani ed esordienti. E fate attenzione a non dimenticare le Reliquie!

Played this to death as a kid and it is exactly how I remember it.

AoE2 is the quintessential medieval base builder that has you conquering your opponents through four "Ages", with progressively stronger and better units. Best part was they released an expansion after more than a decade because this game has such a cult following.

The game has you gather resources, build structures, amass units and go trapsing over maps of all kinds. These range from tiny islands to pretty decent sized representations of European climates that have you seek out and destroy your enemies or win by several other not-so-total conquest game types. The new expansion allows those maps to be massive and adds even more civilizations to play with, making the total 23. These civilizations span from all corners of Europe, Asia and the Middle East. All units have voice clips in their native languages to help with the feel of every faction being truly different in addition to visually unique buildings and units depending on the cultural locale of your civilization.

With its migration to Steam AoE now has great multiplayer support, achievements, and Steam Workshop capabilities that will allow the sharing of user-created content to be spread much easier than having to download things like scenario maps from a third-party webpage over dial-up as I did back in the day.

If you played this game in the past, it is well worth picking up again if nothing more than for nostalgia goggle syndrome because you know just how fun this was. If you somehow missed the boat in the past and are a fan of games like this there is literally no reason you should not own this game. It has been improved and will more than likely be considered one of the fine wines of gaming; Better with age and enjoyed even more with friends.

Before you read this please note that I have been playing this game since I can remember and have only had it on Steam for a short while. This game is awesome! It is the perfect type of strategy game! There are dozens of different types of nationalities to choose from which all have their strengths and weaknesses. I have spent hours of countless fun playing this game. You can play the campaigns and when you have finished them you can play with a friend over LAN or online with random strangers! It randomly generates the maps so you don't have to worry about playing the same old map over and over. All in all I think this game is well worth the money! I give this game a 9/10!! Just cause I don't think any game can be a 10/10 but if a game can be 10/10 then this is the game!

This game has long been a childhood favorite. It was the first game I ever bought and owned for the PC. I played a lot of this game, mainly singleplayer back in 2006, but scratched the CD a couple years later. When I found it had been remastered on Steam I was quick to purchase myself a copy and have been playing both singleplayer and multiplayer since. For those of you who used to own a copy like myself, I highly advise purchasing this digital edition, as it offers both the same nostalgic gameplay and a great strategic outlet. The Forgotten DLC also gives you more to explore and adds even greater variety to an already extensive game. I highly recommend this title, as it has quickly (re)become a personal favorite.
For those of you who haven't played Age of Empires before, it was one of the older RTS games dating back to the late 90s / early 21st century. I'm surprised more people don't play it. You are given a wide selection of civilizations with specific perks each, and try to race each other towards an objective, be it a Wonder Race, Deathmatch, or King of the Hill. All of which are great fun! What really stands out with this game is that there are hundreds, if not thousands of ways to win. Granted, the mechanics may seem simple and outdated, but when trying to runn an entire empire with 200+ units against up to seven other players, every click counts as you try to out-maneuver, out-think, and out-micro your opponent. The graphics may take a while to get used to, but what you really should look forward to enjoying is the satisfaction of wrecking the strong defenses of an enemy with allies or alone, and conquering lands one by one. A great title, I also highly advise purchasing this for the newer community.

I thought I was over my AOE addiction back when MSN zone shut down. I managed to go outside and make some friends. I even got a girlfriend and a job. Life was good until a colleguage told me to check out the black friday steam sale. I noticed AOE HD listed with 70% off and immediately started having flash backs of the game from back in 2000.

I have to say the game hasn't changed from what I remember and once I got the hang of the keys I was playing like a pro again. In the first few months there were crashing issues in the lobbies but these have been fixed recently. I now love playing it just as much as I used to and spend most nights in deathmatch games.

The population limit increase it the only feature i've noticed to really improves the game from the original...apart from that its the same, so probably overpriced for a 15 year old game. Reasonable if you pick it up in a steam sale.

Unfortunately my girlfriend got sick of the sound of camels moaning while she tries to watch towie so our relationship took a bad turn...my boss has also noticed my work productivity has decreased because I spend too much time sitting in deathmatch lobbies when i'm supposed to be working...he said if things don't improve I will be fired.

I think I could enjoy this game more if I was single and unemployed but at the moment it's causing too many problems :(

A old classic game that is always fun to play. it may be old and the graphics might not look the nicest, but if you can play 3 hours straight without noticing how much time has gone by, I can sure tell you it is a good game.
