As long as the new version includes an attack-move command and units don't walk around confused while being attacked I will be happy.

The differences between the original and HD don't seem all that different. I think I was expecting something a bit more. Still cool though.

OH HELL YES!

AoE2 was my first game ever and it kicked off my love for RTS - As long as it isn't too expensive, I shall be getting this!

JacqueseVonRIP It's not readily apparent in the trailer, but the resolution will scale up to 1080p.

Keep in mind it's just a remaster, not a "remade in HD" or change in visual style. All the graphics will be essentially the same, it'll just work on computer monitors and won't look blurry and extremely pixelated.

Or require closing explorer.exe to not see red everywhere.

The fine things in life.

Nope - why would they develop for an inferior hardware platform?
