Age of Empires 3 Definitive Edition

At their recent Age of Empires fan event, Microsoft and series developers World’s Edge spend a healthy chunk of time talking about the upcoming Age of Empires 4, detailing the new Delhi Sultanate civilization, the Chinese civilization, showing an impressive amount of new gameplay footage, and more. As promised, however, they also provided updates on Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition and Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition. Both remasters are going strong, and both are going to keep trudging forward for the foreseeable future, with meaty new updates announced for both.

Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition is getting its second full-fledged expansion. Called Dawn of the Dukes, the expansion will take players to Eastern Europe, and is due out this Summer. There’s not a lot of info on what the expansion will entail, but a new campaign is kind of a given, while new civilizations are also very likely. In addition to that, the game is also going to see another update later this year that will add co-op, which will be a first for the series (and might be hinting at things to come in Age of Empires 4 later this year). Specific campaign missions and historical battles will be selected by the developers for co-op support.

And what about Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition? That’s getting its own update as well. The new content update is out on April 13, and it will be adding the United States as a new civilization. In addition, it will also add nine new units, a new age-up mechanic, a new explorer, and a new home city. Players who complete an in-game community challenge within a limited time period will be able to claim the update for free. Alternatively, it can be purchased for $4.99.

Meanwhile, it’s also been confirmed that an expansion for Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition is also in the works. It’ll launch later this year and will add African civilizations to the game, but beyond that, details on it are scarce for now.

Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition and Age of Empire 3: Definitive Edition are both available on PC.
