Age of Empires Online – Next in the Age of Empires Franchise
In this Age of Empires you get to play two civilizations: The Greeks and the Egyptians. If you have ever played any of the Age of Empires games before you will notice to total image overhaul they have done with this game; it is much more cartoony than the previous game sin the franchise, but I think its a tad different and does not look half bad at a first glance. At first Age of Empires Online is actually offered as a Free to Play Version that offers more than 40 hours of free game play.
The original Age of Empires is an RTS – Real Time Strategy game, but Age of Empires Online has actually combined the RTS game play with MMORPG – Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game play. You get to be involved in a ton of social interaction, customization, in game crafts, in game item trading, and you can level up by completing quests. You can actually experience this all for free!
The basic premise of Age of Empires Online is that you are running an empire, where in your capital city you ave control over your economy that you can use to strengthen your technologies, go on quests, and expand your influence across the Mediterranean. You get full control over the design of your city, and choose whatever you want to build!
As I am writing this article I have not even played Age of Empires Online yet, but I can assure you that I will be downloading it right away – I’m just getting pumped up! I used to play all of the older Age of Empires, so this game really seems appealing to me. Some have said they do not like the cartoon look, but I disagree 😛 Also, the beauty of Age of Empire Online is that the game itself is not very demanding in terms of its system requirements, so you can play it on a variety of systems.
