Definitive Edition gets February release date — Age of Empires

Definitive Edition gets February release date — Age of Empires

The date was announced via Xbox Wire, with Microsoft creative director Adam Isgreen saying the Definitive Edition of the classic strategy game will be launching on February 20th.

For those players that can't wait to get their hands-on the Definitive Edition, Microsoft are holding a multiplayer insider program which will grant early access to those that sign up on January 29th.

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will be sold through the Windows 10 Store and retail for $19.99. Everything needed to be as good as you remembered it (or better!) to deliver a compelling RTS experience 20 years after its original release. The game will come with plenty of new features that will improve the experience considerably. Additionally, every campaign mission now has voiced narration, while the campaign and scenario editor now lets you create your own custom campaigns.


Once the first game's remaster is all up and running, we will hopefully start to hear more news on Age of Empires II and III.

"...and that took us a bit longer than we'd originally planned".

To celebrate this announce, we're also opening up the multiplayer beta to more players worldwide starting January 29 so everyone can get a taste of the game for free before it launches on February 20. If you're interested in trying out the beta then you can head to AgeOfEmpires.com and sign-up.
