Introducing Age of Empires: Castle Siege

Microsoft Studios and Smoking Gun Interactive are pleased to announce Age of Empires: Castle Siege!

Are you an Empire-Building Prodigy? A Siege Genius? A Tactical Mastermind? Then “Join the Siege”. New to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, Age of Empires: Castle Siege brings a fast-paced experience to touch-based screens while delivering all the strategy and combat Age of Empires is renowned for. Choose from one of several civilizations, expand your castle into a massive city, defend your walls against marauding empires and, when your newly trained army is ready, lay siege to other castles built by online opponents.

Age of Empires: Castle Siege features:

Empire-Building for those on the go: From building your castle into an impressive city, accumulating your resources to keep your fortress and your lands safe, to training your armies to both defend and attack your enemies, Castle Siege is built for you to enjoy the expansiveness of an Age of Empires game with the speed and simplicity of touch-based gaming.

Built for Touch: Now all your strategizing, empire-building and sieging is controlled by the simple swipe of your finger. Drag paths on the touchscreen to command units directly in battle. Using this tactical control to counter your opponents’ defenses is crucial to victory.

Connect with your Xbox Live Friends: Forge alliances with your Xbox Live friends, compete against other alliances for prized ‘crown count’, and fight your way to the top of the leaderboards.

Recruit The Greatest Heroes: when times get tough, it’s time to call up heroes. From Richard the Lionheart to Charlemagne, Castle Siege will allow you to deploy them to turn the battle in your favor.

Cross-platform play only on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8: If you have multiple Windows 8 devices, no matter. Your game progress is always saved to your Gamertag. Furthermore, you can battle friends across platforms, so any Windows 8 PC, tablet or Windows Phone 8 can join the siege.

Several civilizations to choose from: Age of Empires: Castle Siege starts off with six civilizations from the Medieval Era, including Britons, Teutons and Kievan Rus. Each civilization has upwards of six unique “cultural units”, along with cavalry and trebuchets equipment.

Recreate Famous Historical Battles: play through 10 historical battles, including the Siege of Marienburg and the Fall of Constantinople.

Join the siege this September, and tune in to www.twitch.tv/ageofempires today at 1 PM Pacific/GMT-7 for a live gameplay preview with the developers!

    This looks much better than the World Domination app. It still isn’t classic AoE, but it looks like a game I’d enjoy anyway!

  5. Johan Hennis says:

    Please stop making cartoon games. Make game that look realistic! Like AoE 2. Or make a remake of AoM without the cartoon style!!! Damnit when will you learn? AoEO was a huge fail cos of the cartoon style, and now this!

    • Jellyman says:

      A remake of AOE2 was made with HD graphic upgrade and Age of Mythology was also remade in HD. Both are available via Steam. Check it out!

  6. Enner Pérez says:

    another predictable failure, just as they did with AOEONLINE, good game, bad marketing strategies, high prices, and ended up sending it to the dump, only to make this mediocrity. I find it an insult to the AOE series.

  11. Mereakea says:

  12. dinodiegus says:

  17. Mohammed says:

  18. Garja says:

    This game isn’t out yet and people already figured out it is a complete waste of resources from MS.
    Nice job with 80% of dislikes in the youtube promo.

  19. Joe says:

    Why a historical game chooses a cartoon style? It should look like classic AoE style!

  20. Cool! Finally have a use for my Surface 2. I have been looking forward to this for some time. Hope it is not too distant from its roots. I have played it for two hours now, and it seems good so far. If the microtransaction push could be reduced just a bit, it would be a very good game indeed.

  21. Myles says:

    Their servers are down

  22. Amazing game! However, graphics are a bit off on my Lumia 830 (running Lumia Denim). I can see the apple and the timber, but no numbers before there (i.e. I don’t know how much any stuff costs or takes resources).
