History has had an undeserved reputation of being boring or dead. And yet it has become the source of inspiration of some the most addictive and most engaging games of all time, like Sid Meier’s Civilization and, of course, Age of Empires. Microsoft Studios attempted to launch a Definitive Edition of the original title last year to mark it’s 20th anniversary. Sadly, it also announced a delay right before it launched. The good news is that there’s no stopping conquerors and negotiators now, with Age of Empires: Definitive Edition launching next month.
