As noted by colleagues at Dark Side of Gaming, Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition, not yet officially announced by Microsoft, was included in the ESRB database, the organization that deals with the classification of video games in the United States. ‘America.
Although there is no official confirmation, we believe the anticipation is founded, since the ESRB itself has correctly unveiled the PC editions of Cathrine, Yakuza Kiwami 2 and Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition in recent months.
The description on the site gives us a general overview of the game, which as you know bases its foundations of gameplay on a tactical-management structure, with the presence of single-player campaigns and the ability to build structures, collect resources and command multiple military units to be thrown against enemy forces. The historical age includes the arc that goes from the Hellenic Middle Ages to the Imperial age, while the “Teen” evaluation confirms that the title can also be enjoyed by a young audience.
Unfortunately, there are no details regarding the potential technical improvements that the Definitive Edition will bring as a dowry. It is plausible to hypothesize that, exactly as happened with the re-edition of the first chapter of the series, also Age of Empires 2 will welcome new assets for a graphic sector that supports 4K, with the further addition of the multiplayer supported by Xbox Live, an advanced editor to personalize the campaigns, and to retouch the method of narration of the missions that we will face from time to time.
We’ll see if the Redmond house will really announce Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition: news could come during the new episode of Inside Xbox, scheduled for Today, Tuesday, April 16th.
