For players who already own the standard Age of Empires 2 game on Steam, Valve will be offering a 25% discount to those who want to upgrade to the Definitive Edition. Fans will also be treated to a bonus campaign, The Last Khans, as an incentive if they choose to pick up the newly remastered version for the PC or Xbox One console.

Age of Empires 2 is highly regarded as one of the greatest real-time strategy games ever made and shot the franchise to new heights. It was definitely a pinnacle for the series overall and giving it an updated makeover is a smart move on Microsoft’s part. If you didn’t get a chance to play it when it first came out or you’re just looking for an excuse to go back and revisit it, Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition is set to launch on Xbox One consoles and PC on November 14 along with all the Last Khans bonus content.
