Age of Empires II: The Conquerors Expansion (sometimes abbreviated to AoC) is the expansion pack to the 1999 real-time strategy game Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings. The Conquerors is the fourth installment of the Age of Empires series by Microsoft Game Studios and Ensemble Studios. It features five new civilizations (the Aztecs, Mayans, Spanish, Huns, and Koreans), four new campaigns, eleven new units, twenty-six new technologies, new gameplay modes, new maps and different minor tweaks to the gameplay.


Gameplay changes

The Conquerors Expansion also introduced various new gameplay features and tweaks, including the new game modes Defend the Wonder, King of the Hill and Wonder Race. Additional maps, some based on real life geographic locations, and new winter and tropical terrain textures were included. In-game, infantry are able to garrison in battering rams, protecting the infantry while increasing the ram's speed and attack, while ships are able to form formations for more effective fighting.

Micromanagement is made easier, by an improved scripted Artificial Intelligence of villagers and siege weapons. Villagers will now commence automatically gathering resources, if they build resource gathering sites, while siege onagers will not fire if their attack is likely to harm friendly units. Additionally, an in-game option has been added to allow the game to automatically replenish farms after they are exhausted. Chat commands are introduced, in order to communicate more effectively with allied computer players.

Campaigns

The Conquerors Expansion adds four additional single player campaigns. These are based on Attila the Hun's rise to power, Montezuma's defense against Hernán Cortés and the adventures of El Cid. The fourth campaign, "Battles of the Conquerors," is actually a group of unrelated single scenarios, each based on a significant historical battle. These include the Battle of Agincourt, the saga of Erik the Red, and the Battle of Hastings, among others.

PostSubject: Age of Empires Online (Trailer)   Sun Sep 26, 2010 3:06 pm

Just when we thought that with the death of Ensemble Studios, Age of Empires had disappeared, Entertainment Robot put AOE on the map. The developer, consisting of old strategy game creators, recently announced they were working on Age of Empires Online, a version very similar to classic games, but with MMO elements integrated. These include cooperative quest and persistent capital continues to grow even if you tripped.


For a time, Age of Empires series redefined the strategy genre and became the most popular. Then was forgotten and Microsoft decided to close the doors of Ensemble Studios, developer historic founded in 1995 that gave life to these classics. His last game was Halo Wars, coolly received by critics. Today, we see the first trailer for Age of Empires Online, developed by Robot Entertainment, which incidentally, is home to many former members of Ensemble Studios.

Yes, Age of Empires is back and has done the hand of some of their original creators. Though of course the game has changed considerably. Not just graphically, opting for a more friendly, but also in terms of format, because as its name implies, this is a persistent world. While maintaining the foundations of the original titles, there will be a persistent capital that lives and grows even when you're offline. . To this are added several quests cooperatives, trade with other players and a level system that will allow each player to level at their own speed.



AGE OF EMPIRES ONLINE



Initially only be used Greek civilization since the launch, but plans to add more as more players enter. Decided to start with the Greeks because they were a well-known civilization and its history includes some very interesting events and personalities that are very familiar. So the history of each civilization will have a major impact on the game, with quests representing actual events and the appearance of real people in history.

If you're as interested as us in this new Age of Empires, then you can contact the official site and register for the Beta now available. To test it, you will need to be over 18 years, living in America or Europe and have a gamertag that can connect to Xbox Live and Games for Windows LIVE. If you qualify, you can download the client here. Although not currently have a confirmed date, we know that Age of Empires Online is coming out next year for PC
