To celebrate the 25th anniversary of our beloved Age of Empires II, Microsoft and Forgotten Empires have announced a brand new expansion for the Definitive Edition.
Though not much has been confirmed yet, the expansion pack will act almost like a port to bring the original Age of Empires era into it's far-superior sequel, as some would say.
Rumours circulate the the expansion will include three new civilisations The Romans, Egyptians and Babylonians.
This is not the first time the age of antiquity has been brought to the game, with the popular fan made mods Rome at War and All Road Lead to Rome bringing us the Roman era. There have also been many attempts to convert the original Age of Empires to the sequel's game engine. So demand for a Roman era expansion is definitely there. It will be interesting to see if the developers borrow any ideas from these popular Mods.
Are you excited about this news? What do you hope to see in this new expansion?
