Age of Empires 2 and 3 Remasters Will Get New Expansions

Microsoft has announced new expansions for Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition and Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition. What can we expect and when will they appear?

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Age of Empires 2 and 3 remasters will receive new content;
  2. These will include civilizations, campaigns and game modes.

During yesterday's Age of Empires Fan Preview event, Microsoft revealed plans to support two remastered titles - Age of Empires2: Definitive Edition and Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition.

In addition to the usual updates that will take care of bugs and balance improvements in both titles, new content will be made available. Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition will receive Dawn of the Dukes expansion in the summer . It will introduce new factions from Eastern Europe, offering additional campaigns, among other things. A few weeks after that there will be missions and campaign sections prepared especially for the additional game mode - historical co-op battles.

Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition will receive a new civilization - the United States - tomorrow. In the DLC we'll find a new capital city, nine units and progress mechanics. What's important, we'll be able to get the addition for free if we complete 50 special challenges in the game during a strictly specified time limit. However, if we don't succeed (or we don't want to waste time), the DLC can also be purchased separately for $4.99.

In the second half of the year Tantalus is also planning to release an add-on introducing civilizations from Africa. However, at this point it's too early to talk about any details, so unfortunately we can't tell you anything more.
