During the Gamescom 2019 episode of Inside Xbox, Microsoft announced the release of Age of Empires II: Definite Edition on November 14, 2019.

The game will be released in celebration of its 20th anniversary. Age of Empires II has long been considered one of the most popular strategy games of all time, but this time it will be released with 4K Ultra HD Graphics, a new and fully remastered soundtrack, and brand new content titled “The Last Khans” with three new campaigns and four new civilizations.

As usual, we should expect gameplay of over 200 hours as you can either play solo throughout 1,000 years of human history or choose from 35 different civilizations and go head to head online with other players in your quest for world domination.

Nothing should change for its system requirements, as is expected for strategy games. Below are the minimum specs required:
