Age of Empires has returned with a medieval series

Microsoft finally launched the latest version of the extremely popular historical strategy game on October 28th last week. It is charming gamers back by returning to the medieval era for an epic season.

The game, which is on par with World of Warcraft in terms of number of players, had been quiet for 16 years. Though it is now finally being enjoyed by its loyal fans, Microsoft is worried about its potential to attract a new, younger crowd.

One of the popular points of Age of Empires lies in its nostalgic value which reminds many of its players of their childhood. Similar to past instalments, the new release will also allow gamers to create and manage entire civilisation.
