BackgroundAge of Empires 2: Age of Kings is the sequel to the award-winning Age of Empires, a fantasy RTS in which you build up your civilization in order to conquer it all...
GameplayYou take control of a civilisation during missions. Each of them has different features: some can access a particular technology the others can't. You control civilians that will build, hunt, fish, cut wood, bring gold/stone, etc.. You can also order to buildings to produce a specific unity. Also, you will have to build an army for defending and conquering your enemy. You can also make trade with your allies without forgetting that you can also explore the seas with boats. Your goal is to win but for doing it, you will have to advance in age. You have four ages and each one bring new buildings, new technologies (you'll have to develop them for improving your civilisation) and new units.
- Battle alongside heroes of the day. Strive with one of following heroes to victory: Joan of Arc, William Wallace, Genghis Khan, Saladin, and Barbarossa.
- Command one of 13 mighty civilizations including the Franks, Japanese, Byzantines, Vikings, Mongols, and Celts. Each with unique attributes, buildings, technologies, and specific combat units based on its historical counterpart.
- Choose the path to greatness. Will it be an economic path created out of craftsmanship, trade and diplomacy? Or a military route of siege and naval warfare? Or by building a Wonder of the World that will stand the test of time?
