After the last Age of Empires was released nearly a decade ago, the classic RTS game has been widely anticipated. The Age of Empire games focused on events in Europe, Africa and Asia. From the stone Age to the Iron Age.

What made the Age of Empire games so popular were its historical themes and fair play. The game’s AI was also well-regarded which lead to a more interesting and fun playtime.
