    While this does look great in my eyes, the visuals and animations look more like a game from 2009 than 2021. Still, looking forward to it.

    I watched the event live earlier today. It looks like they did a good job of keeping the spirit of the original games. I'm looking forward to it. The Age of Empires franchise is probably my favorite, though I'd still like to see another Age of Mythology.

      Missed the event. Is there anything key/exciting not shown in this video?

        This https://www.ageofempires.com/news/afp-recap-2021/ is a good site with all the info from the event today since I'd just mix up where things are if I tried to tell you from memory. I know there's updates to aoe2 and aoe3 definitive editions and some co-op play.

    The box copy of AoE3 came with a promo pamphlet that showed what future AoE titles might look like. IIRC, it showed a WW2 era title and a futuristic warfare title. Not sure if that was ever their actual intention, but I'm glad they didn't go through with it. As much as I loved the original and 3, I greatly prefer the eras represented in 2.

    Looks like they've not made a remake of aoe2 which I was a little worried about. I love the look of trees as cover for ambushes and manning troops on walls.
