  1. Titan Quest may have been out for over a decade, but it has just released on consoles for the first time. Players can now experience the Diablo-like ARPG based on mythologies from around the world. Crafted by Brian Sullivan, one of the co-creators of Age of Empires, players travel across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia in an attempt to stop the long imprisoned Titans from destroying the planet. With the help of the gods themselves, it might just be possible. Titan Quest is notable for its story having been written by Randall Wallace, the mind behind the film Braveheart. The console version features completely overhauled graphics that bring the 2006 game up to modern graphical standards. It also supports online co-op play for up to six players. That's right, up to five of your friends can run around the ancient world doing battle with mythical creatures. With controls remapped to console gamepads, it's never been easier to play. Titan Quest is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Nintendo Switch version is currently in development, but the official word is that it will be released when it is done. A couch co-op mode is also on the way. What do you think? Will you be picking up Titan Quest? View full article

  3. Back during E3, Microsoft made a small splash that was easy to overlook in the churning waters of PR madness: the original Age of Empires would be receiving an official, definitive edition. This new edition would bring the game into 4K resolutions and present a variety of improvements in UI and gameplay, as well as expanded content. Given that the Age of Empires franchise had lain dormant for years with only the small releases of digital adaptations of Age of Empires II and its expansion to HD, it was enough to catch the attention of some ardent fans. That announcement seems to have been a mere prelude to Microsoft's Gamescom 2017 announcement yesterday, which revealed that Microsoft has tapped Relic Entertainment, the developers behind the Company of Heroes franchise, to create Age of Empires IV. As a longtime fan of Age of Empires who was sad to see Ensemble Studios disband back in 2009 specifically because it meant no more Age of Empires, Relic might be the only studio out there who has the chops for a proper Age of Empires sequel. We don't know much about what form this next entry in the historical RTS genre will take. The trailer for Age of Empires IV reveals that the game will span multiple historical periods from the time of the Roman Legion to at least the Colonial era. No gameplay was shown, so it might be a radically different take on the genre. There's not much more information available, but Age of Empires fans can sign up to participate in the closed beta of Age of Empires IV on its website. Microsoft has a small series of promotional videos going up on YouTube called Age Up!, which focuses on the various civilizations in Age of Empires IV. The first video is already up; it's about a minute long and gives some quick facts about the Pyramids of Egypt. I like the concept for this series, but I hope they put more time and effort into it. One minute isn't enough history! Finally, along with the announcement of Age of Empires IV, Microsoft announced a release date for the Definitive Edition of the original Age of Empires - and also that we will definitely be seeing definitive editions for Age of Empires II and Age of Empires III. You'll be able to get your hands on Age of Empires: Definitive Edition on October 19, 2017.

  5. Several seasoned developers from 343 Industries who left the company some months ago have announced their new indie studio First Strike Games. Three of the four founders specifically worked on the multiplayer portions of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians. The fourth founder, Jeff Hilbert has experience with securing financing and his profile on the First Strike website boasts that he has attracted a mind-boggling $750,000,000 for game development over his career. The First Strike team appears to be focusing their efforts specifically on their own vision of a multiplayer game. The motto on their website is "We make multiplayer" and it also states that they are "open for business... multiplayer business." The people involved with First Strike have extensive experience with video games of all types from the Gears of War 3 to Age of Mythology to Shenmue II. Below you can see a selection of titles that the devs have worked on. So, what exactly are they working on? No word as of yet as the company is still in talks with publishers and investors to develop a PC and/or console title. View full article

  7. 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.
