    Damn, 20 years?! I remember getting my first PC on Christmas 1997 then buying AOE a few days later. I put so many hours into that game.

    Providing they get a decent reception. These will be both be taking my money.

    Yep, I still play the HD version of AoE2 on Steam occasionally. I own AoE3 but never really got into it even when it was new. Concentrated too much on graphical enhancements than gameplay.

    They should concentrate on perfecting the sandbox and gameplay factors, along with the best online experience they can create. Fancy graphics is something AoE just doesn't need.

    I'd be interested if they can create a nice interface for people to create their own modern AI as well. It may be largely for the AlphaGo/Google lot at the moment but in 10 - 20 years time imagine being able to design and train your own deep learning AI and compete with others. Or if they become more powerful and start beating humans use them to discover strategies you wouldn't have thought of otherwise.

    As long as Relic don't try to do to it what they did to DoW3 should be good

    Re: Microsoft announces Age of Empires 4 at Gamescom (video)

    DRM free at gog and I'm in (for the 1+2 remasters, maybe for AOE4) This is NOT negotiable. Steam is against my religion Also as mentioned before, if AOE4 is like AOE3...ummm maybe when it's on gog for $3-5... Sorry, just too many games out there I already can't keep up with, so the bar is pretty high for fun factor at least. I don't care much about graphics as most of what comes out today is ok to me. I'm good with grimrock etc types, torchlights (even lesser indie types in some cases), etc all look good enough for me if the FUN is there. Fun/Gameplay first, graphics are far behind for me. Is it strange that I'm more interested in the remaster of 1+2 than the new AOE4? LOL.

    We already have AOE2 HD, so not sure what changes will be made to that one. But again, get it on GOG.com if you ever want me to buy them.

    I wouldn't hold your breath for Steam let alone GOG. The trailer had the Windows 10 logo at the start and it's MS. I'd put money on it being a Windows Store exclusive built in UWP.
