Age of Empires has been one of the most influential games within the real-time strategy (RTS) community for the past 20 years. Since the game released in 1997, millions of dedicated thousands of hours into the franchise. Now, Age of Empires is keeping up with the times and getting a 4K makeover…for $20.

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will cost $19.99 and features new narration, new orchestral score, and cross-network play with Xbox One players.

Age of Empires has gone on to sell over 20 million copies, and fans were promised the Definitive Edition as a commemoration of the game’s 20th anniversary. Sadly, developers delayed due to quality and wanted to provide a better product. Who could be mad at that? How many times do we see developers dedicated to giving a game the justice and respect it deserves?

Not many.

Many fans were pushed back into the Age of Empires hole thanks to an Age of Empires V announcement in August 2017. Age of Empires V is a whole new title in the franchise. Thankfully, fans can dive into Definite Edition to hold themselves over.

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will be available on December 31.
