Age of Empires has been a mainstay in the RTS world for almost 20 years now. Coming this March we’ll be able to enjoy it on our Android devices, as well. Microsoft studios has partnered with Smoking Gun interactive to deliver Age of Empires: Castle Siege. While it definitely sounds more in the vein of the rash of mobile war games, I’m hoping it will differentiate itself enough in game play to pay homage to the Franchise.
Choose ancients Civilizations such as the Britons, Teutons, or Kievan Rus. Enjoy the company of Joan of Arc, Saladin, and others. You’ll guide your chosen civilization through the middle ages, shaping economies and waging war. Unlike many other titles of this genre, you’re able to command your units individually which lends to a much greater depth of play and immersion than just clicking “attack”.
Currently available on iOS and Windows, the game will maintain that cross-platform compatibility. You’ll be able to save your data to the cloud and pick up where you left off on any device that shares one of the three supported OS.You can check out more screenshots below. We will post an update once we get closer to launch and know an exact release date.
