COLOGNE, Germany — Aug. 17, 2009 — On the eve of gamescom 2010, the world’s
largest consumer-oriented games showcase, Microsoft Corp. unveiled the newest addition to the
famed “Age of Empires” franchise, “Age of Empires Online.” Microsoft also announced the
development of “Microsoft Flight,” a new entry inspired by the best-selling “Microsoft Flight
Simulator” franchise. Published by Microsoft Game Studios, these new titles, along with the
previously announced “Fable III,” fully integrate the free* Games for Windows – LIVE online
service to deliver compelling socially connected gameplay experiences.

“Today, we’re bringing powerful, inventive gaming experiences to the Windows-based
PC,” said Phil Spencer, corporate vice president of Microsoft Game Studios. “Over the years, our
PC heritage captured the hearts and minds of millions of players. Reinventing these iconic
franchises with social, shared experiences at their core marks the beginning of our return to PC
gaming in bold new ways.”

“Age of Empires” for a New Era
With more than 20 million copies sold worldwide, the “Age of Empires” series redefined
real-time strategy games for Windows-based PC players. Now, the timeless franchise once again
invites players to experience its rich storyline in new ways. Developed by Robot Entertainment,
“Age of Empires Online” will invite players to create a living, growing online world, shared with

friends and friendly rivals around the globe. Begin the journey with your own Greek civilization,
and watch as it progresses from a village to an empire. Embark on quests along the way, alone or
with friends, and immerse yourself in epic tales, quirky characters, adventure, history, and
strategy. Together with the Games for Windows – LIVE service, “Age of Empires Online”
delivers a rich, social experience that lets you play however you want — anywhere, anytime.
Marrying fresh features with iconic gameplay, “Age of Empires Online” offers something
for long-time fans, newcomers, and everyone in between. “Age of Empires Online” will feature:

• A persistent online capital city that lives and grows even when you’re offline
• Cooperative multiplayer quests, trading, and a level-based system that lets you
progress at your own pace
• Fun, approachable style and storylines
• Free-to-play experiences via Games for Windows – LIVE

So it's gonna be a mix of civilisation, aoe2 and new rendering?

Looks alright, but aoe2 is still much better at the moment IMO.
But I cant wait to try the BETA, thats if it's not an Windows 7 exclusive lol
