Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition is coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC, as well as Steam and the Microsoft Store this fall. This version of the game includes all previous Age of Empires II content, plus an all new campaign: The Last Khans. It also adds four new civilizations into the game (Bulgarians, Cumans, Lithuanians and Tatars). The definitive edition also adds a new spectator mode and tournament features. Spectators can switch between the views of players in the game, and see a UI overlay that gives them information on the player they are watching.
Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition will set you back $19.99 if you’re a new player, but if you already own Age of Empires II: HD on Steam, you can get it for $14.99. Meanwhile, Xbox Game Pass for PC members can get the game to own from the Microsoft Store with that same discount. They also announced that the game will be available on Steam in August, and it will also have crossplay with Windows 10.
Lastly, if you’re interested, you can become an “Age Insider” if you would like to take part in the public beta. You can sign up at the official website.
