Microsoft is remastering Age of Empires for PC

20 years later...

Today's surprise PC Gaming Show announcement was a remastered Age of Empires, dubbed the Definitive Edition, coming to Windows later this year.

The remaster comes with 4K UHD visuals, new zoom levels, new and improved gameplay, a new soundtrack and Xbox Live multiplayer (on PC). It's not clear what the new gameplay is but the new graphics are noticeable and the new zoom levels look very helpful indeed.
