Age of Empires is a name that doesn’t need any introductions. In fact, for many of us, this game was an introduction to the RTS genre where we could spend hours building empires and razing the enemies to the ground. And it’s back, in glorious 4K graphics. Adam Isgreen, the creative director of Microsoft Studios announced on the PC Gaming Show during E3 2017 that a remastered version of the 1997’s RTS gem is in the works. It includes remastered 4K graphics and soundtrack, improved gameplay and physics, and new zoom levels.
