Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition and Age of Empires IV Gameplay Video Released

Xbox Wire announces the launch of Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition along with new details on Age of Empires IV, revealing World's Edge as the name of the studio dedicated to the series. Here's a new Age of Empires IV Gameplay Reveal Trailer and here's more on the classic real-time strategy series:
We know that our community has been eager to learn more about Age of Empires IV since we announced it at gamescom in 2017. We’ve been hard at work on the game and we’re excited to share some of it with the world today. As part of Inside Xbox, live from X019 in London, we revealed a first look at the game with an all-new trailer. We hope we’ve given you enough to discuss and theorize! As the footage said, we’re pre-Alpha. So while we’ve come a long way, we will continue to put in our best work to ensure it lives up to the Age of Empires name.

As I mentioned, today isn’t just about World’s Edge and Age of Empires IV – it’s also the launch day for Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition! This truly is the definitive version of the game, bringing back everything that made the original game so special and wrapping it in a modern package that looks and sounds like it belongs in 2019. We’ve listened to the community to learn what they loved most about the game and where we could improve the experience, and have also added brand new content in the form of “The Last Khans” to delight both existing and new players.

Launch day is just the beginning. There will be ongoing support for Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition and we’ll be focused on providing continuous value and a great experience for our community. This includes quality of life and balance improvements, new game modes, new missions, advanced tutorials to sharpen your skills and even more that we’re not ready to share just yet. We’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who took part in our closed beta and worked with us over the last few months.
