In a final reveal of the night of the E3 PC gaming conference, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition has been announced. It has been twenty years since the first Age of Empires game was released and for many it was the gateway into true PC gaming. Seeing its triumphant return to the forefront of the gaming catalogue is welcome indeed.

From the reveal trailer we can see that the game touts some pretty impressive visuals, a fully remastered soundtrack and greater levels of detailed animation. In addition, the title seems to have had a significant UI upgrade and it has been stated that the game will have many of its old features modernised in order to make for a smoother, more enjoyable experience.

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition looks set to be a love-letter to fans of the series, and perhaps will prompt new iterations along the line.
