Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition Xbox

Don’t believe me? Well now you can find out for yourself as Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition lands on Xbox consoles today.

Released as a celebration of the franchises 20th anniversary, the RTS classic now arrives on Xbox consoles. Fully designed for controller use with a new UI, controller tutorial and more, this is the full game released for consoles.

Those who may be concerned about how it will play on a controller needn’t worry, and here’s why.

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition features every civilisation released for the game so far. That is 35 in total, each with their own unique units and skills. These civilisations have been plucked from over 1000 years of history to play and learn about. You could say it is the greatest history lesson you will ever have.

With that many different civilisations, you would expect a lot of game. And you’d be right. Over 200 hours of various campaigns, online cross-play multiplayer, a battle royale mode, a sandbox mode and even mod support. Now that is a lot of game.

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is on the Xbox Store now priced at £14.99, and also available through Xbox Game Pass. If over 200 hours of content isn’t enough, there is also the Age of Empires II: Deluxe Definitive Edition Bundle for £34.99 and this comes with three additional add-ons:

And obviously, stay tune for our review coming soon. But for now, let us know in the comments your best Age of Empires II memories.
