Age of Empires 2 Expansion releasing later this year

A new expansion for Age of Empires 2: HD Edition will be released later this year and is currently under development, Microsoft has announced.

The new Age of Empires 2 expansion will feature new civilizations, campaigns, game modes, units and a lot more new content. The team behind The Forgotten expansion will be lending their hand to help develop this new expansion.

More information regarding the expansion will be released soon, with Microsoft also showing as sneak peak at one of the new units, the Camel Archer.

“We’ll be detailing the expansion throughout the year in developer blogs directly from the team – including one soon revealing the first new civilization”

“If your focus is more on the original AOEII experience, the new content development means you can look forward to additional support and features that benefit every owner. Since launch, AOE II HD has come so far – and with the help of the FE team and Skybox, this year is going to be the best yet,” Microsoft added.

Age of Empires 2: HD Edition was released back in 2013, with tomorrow marking the two year anniversary of its release.
