Teaser in the developer stream today was a screenshot showing Age of Mythology: Extended Edition, so it is definitely in the works! Hopefully we'll receive more information in the near future. Thanks Alfred!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


YAY!

This is great! Pretty much a guaranteed purchase from me.

What do you think they will add to the game?

I'm hoping they update at least the textures to the game.

I think it's a given they are going to make sure multiplayer is accessible.

But what does the "Extended Edition" mean? That would imply added features. Perhaps the equivalent of Forgotten Empires? I guess we will find out soon...

Watch the end of the stream he linked to. It's the official Age of Empires stream.


Alternatively, follow this link: http://youtu.be/ycnzv4FKvw8?t=43m2s

As you can see, it's the official Age Of Empires youtube account. They posted the stream on youtube afterwards.

There was also a post on reddit.com/r/gaming about it, which ryzon commented on confirming that it was coming, but giving no other details. http://www.reddit.com/r/...to_steam_finally/cfre3kx

Wow! I wonder if they will ressurect ESO1 for it, or go with steam matchmaking. Or maybe they will integrate AoM into AoE3's ESO2. Or maybe even an ESO3 could be in the works... (obviously it won't be called ESO3 however).

Personally I hope they go with ESO2, or an ESO3. I don't like the fact that Age2 requires you to be online on Steam to play multiplayer. Tell me I'm in denial, but I don't want to know how long I've played a game for, and steam keeps track of that if you are online (but not in Offline Mode).

Really? How did they ruin AOE II? By re-releasing it on Steam, they brought some old players back to the game, and back to the series. If, for some reason, you don't like HD and the Forgotten Empires, you can always pull out your old disk and (assuming you can get it to work properly) play multiplayer on one of the famous third-party solutions.

I can only see upsides to this. I'm excited. I'm sure MS will be mindful to try not to step on people's nostalgia too much, though hopefully they will modernize parts of the game. (Hopefully higher-res textures this time for one thing...)


@ post above me:

We know no details at this time other than that it is coming to steam, and is called "Extended Edition", whatever that means.

I bet they never do. Especially not around the time of release with a special stream. In fact, this is probably why they just told us about the existence of this release: to incite a riot that they never tell us anything.

I think it is safe to assume that at most any new content would be delivered as an expansion to the extended edition rather than as part of it. The rerelease of a slicker AoM will attract all the headlines this game would ever get. If they were to expand upon existing content, a subsequent release would double their press.

I just don't see an outweighing advantage to the franchise in firing all guns at once. Especially if these repackages are serving the dual function of buying time for the franchise to create a newer, bigger, better game. To sustaining and/or growing brand presence, slowing the pace of releases while remaining relevant in the marketplace seems like the name of the game.

I'm not going to comment on anything AoM-related as more news will come in due time, but in reference to AoE II: HD, note that we tried to stick with the original AoE II design as much as possible in regards to development decisions. We wanted to keep the experience as close as possible to how you remembered it ~15 years ago while improving gameplay in ways that wouldn't contradict original design decisions.

Maybe it is AoM:HD with an extended campaign and the addition of home cities. More Arkantos and Kastor BigGrin

But perfection cannot improve.

If we are lucky, double clicking on AoM:EE will simply open AoE3.
