First of all, I noticed a small but crucial feature: The fields of the mills are now automatically sown again! That alone makes the game a lot more pleasant. Furthermore, when playing the campaign it is noticeable that all speaker roles are filled. I like that very much, because the setting in the older versions was sometimes horrible. Otherwise you get:

  • Zoom levels on the camera, which makes the battlefield much clearer.
  • three more campaigns, four new races, and a few new unit types.
  • an improved and stronger enemy AI.
  • new tutorials and challenge maps for multiplayer.

The graphics are not incredibly breathtaking today, but they still retain the old Age of Empires 2 charm. That doesn't mean that it looks very dated, on the contrary: the maximum has been teased out of the actually outdated graphics engine. This has one advantage: The computing power required is limited. In addition to the HD textures, there are also some other innovations. Buildings are now shown in more detail and can already be recognized during construction, and there is now a switchable grid with which you have a better view of the battlefield and can organize it better.

So grab some friends and throw yourself into battle!

For whom is the new version of AoE 2 worth playing?

Age of Empires 2 in the Definitive Edition is definitely one of the best strategy games I have ever played. Most of the corners and edges from the original version were ironed out, the campaign is still as fun as it was then and the graphics look very good within the possibilities.

Thus, the game is suitable for newcomers as well as for long-established fans of the series. For a moderate 20 euros (or in the Xbox gamepass) you get a sophisticated real-time strategy game with a great campaign, many different races and a wonderful soundtrack. You should also keep an eye on the cheats, as the most bizarre things can be conjured up here. Age of Empires 2 has received a worthy revision with the Definitive Edition, with which one can pass the time up to Age of Empires 4 extensively.

Unfortunately, the hardcore fans still have to tear away a tear. For the time being, the Definitive Edition of AoE 2 does not require LAN mode. The multiplayer mode is initially completely online. It has not yet been announced whether a LAN function will be submitted with an update. But we can remain confident.
