Age of Empires II HD Now Available for Pre-Orderers, Release Set for April 9
Developed by Ensemble, Age of Empires II was originally released in 1999, but had its official multiplayer servers halted by Microsoft in the mid 2000s. However, it’s making a comeback this week with its multiplayer being revived.
Age of Empires II HD is now available for pre-order online at the Steam store. The game is still the same classic Real Time Strategy (RTS) game we know, but remastered in high-definition and includes support for the latest versions of Windows. The game, which is being released as a Steam-exclusive title, will support both online play and cloud syncing.
Age of Empires II HD will be available on April 9, 2013. If you are wanting to play earlier, unlocked versions of the game will be available for those who pre-ordered the game.
