Age of Empires 2 HD Announced, Reveal Trailer

Microsoft today announced a new, high definition remake of the popular Age of Empires 2, a historical real time strategy game that will come exclusively for Steam.

The re-release, which is being developed by Hidden Path Entertainment (most famous for their work on Counter Strike Global Offensive), will feature the original campaigns from the games expansion Conquerors with a new sound track, new textures, online multiplayer, multi-monitor compatibility, Steamworks (including Workshop compatibility) and 1080p HD support.

Not only will these new features satisfy the taste buds of those who want to go back to the days of the original game, it is also tailored towards the more modern features that make games popular. New online experiences are bound to redefine the game in the eyes of the community.

Full system requirements have been announced, and with only 1GB of RAM, a 1.2GHz CPU and 2GB of hard drive space required, it’s safe to say that this is a game – although better than ever before – that won’t require a powerful PC.

Age of Empires 2 HD is scheduled for release on the 9th of April, but for those who pre-purchase the game, at a 10% discount, will be granted access on the 5th. Check out for more details.
