Age of Empires II HD Remaster Coming Exclusively to Steam

By Jon Ireson in News

With Microsoft running their own Games for Windows Live marketplace in the digital distribution spectrum on PC, it should come as somewhat of a surprise to hear that they will be releasing a classic title of theirs remade in HD, but exclusively for Steam.

If you are a fan of RTS and haven’t played AOE (Age of Empires) then I implore you to keep an eye on this title release of Age of Empires II in HD releasing for Steam only April 9, 2013 and including “The Conquerers” expansion pack bundled with it. Microsoft released this trailer along with the announcement today:
