The classic RTS experience of Age of Empires is going to make a glorious comeback in modern PCs as Age of Empires Definitive Edition next month, Microsoft confirmed today. While Age of Empires II HD is available through Steam, it sounds like this re-release of the original will be a Windows Store-only affair. The completely new game will not be a remaster or remake.

Adam Isgreen, Creative Director at Microsoft Studios, has shed some light on the upcoming Age of Empires: Definitive Edition which is scheduled to launch on February 20th on Windows 10.

The flight of SBIRS GEO 4 is the first scheduled Cape launch for ULA's Atlas V rocket this year (2018). The SBIRS program is created to act as a missile-warning system and provide technical intelligence.

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will support 4K resolution, online play through Xbox Live, new campaign narration for every mission, a re-recorded orchestral score, and an improved campaign and scenario editor.

We're excited to get Age of Empires: Definitive Edition into the hands of players this February and we thank you for your patience while we put the finishing touches on it! Developer Forgotten Empires has revealed that an additional 100,000 players will be added to the teaser, so you may yet get a chance to get in on the action. Thankfully, fans can dive into Definite Edition to hold themselves over. There are a lot of PC players out there who play exclusively through Steam, and I'm not sure that a fondness for Age of Empires - even though it's an excellent game - will change that. Until then you can head to the comments section and let us know your expectations from the game.
