World’s Edge and Xbox have announced that Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition and Age of Empires 4 are both coming to Xbox consoles next year. Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition will launch on January 31st, 2023 with Age of Empires 4 to release later in 2023. This has been a long time coming with Xbox fans waiting years for Age of Empires to finally grace consoles.
It was said that the team has been working hard to bring an experience that not only feels great whilst using a controller, but also teaches players, new and old to play the game on Xbox. A new tutorial designed specifically for controller input paired with a new user experience will be added to the game, and a new game AI has been introduced which helps make resource management easier.
