So Microsoft Game Studios has decided to bring back this legendary game. They partnered up with Hidden Path Entertainment and re-mastered it for HD gaming. It contains both Age of Kings and The Conquerors content and you can get it on Steam for a mere 20 bucks. I believe you can save 10% if you pre-order in the next few days. It will also include Steam Achievements and Steam Workshop.

Releases April 9th, 2013.

Can't wait to try this! It's going to bring back some good memories. Anyone else up for it?

I still have my disk around here somewhere. Not sure if the 'HD' part would make it that much better. Still a fun game that I think about playing. Just remember that learning curve. I wonder how much of my old build orders I can recall with some practice.

The biggest advantage of this is that it will allow you to play in 1920x1080 resolution which everyone and their mother have today or something crazy like 2560x1600 and even multi-monitor. Vanilla AoE2 is capped, I think, at a 4:3 ratio and 1280x1024 (no widescreen).
Plus Steam achievements and Workshop for map creation/publishing!

Hi Flam!

I think I might get this on Steam even though I've installed it a million times and still have original disks o_o

Voobly already has all the options this offers (extra pop, widescreen/increased resolution), just minus the "HD." I'm rather skeptical of the multiplayer experience, especially after the Viper v Daut matches on AoEHD ended with multiple OoS.

Multiplayer is pretty laggy at the moment. Only played 5 or so games but all of them had command lag. I can't imagine this is due to people's internets or PCs (LOL).

Hope they fix that soon Sad

Are any of you guys playing this? I still play AOE3 in the holiday periods but after buying my mac without a CD drive it proves difficult.

Luckily Jono's gameplay isn't as noobish as his knowledge of this game.
