New Expansion for Age of Empires II HD Available Today

Jack Gardner


Two years after the release of Age of Empires II HD, Skybox Labs and Forgotten Empires have teamed up for their second Age of Empires expansion titled The African Kingdoms. Players can take control of the Berbers, Malians, Ethiopians, and Portuguese. Four unique campaigns focus on each of these civilizations with full voice-acting. The Berbers' campaign centers on the tale of Tariq ibn Ziyad; the Malian story follows the path of Sundjata; Portugal's missions relates events in the life of Francisco de Almeida; and the Ethiopian campaign follows the career of the legendary Queen Yodit. 

The two developers have also made improvements to the AI. Twenty-three new maps have been added, as well, encompassing balanced maps, real world locations, and randomized map types. Ten new terrain types make appearances. New units and technologies and a sudden death mode round out the additions The African Kingdoms make to Age of Empires II HD (along with numerous balancing improvements).

The African Kingdoms expansion can be downloaded through Steam starting today.
