Topic Subject: AoE3: Definitive Edition Released!
posted 10-16-20 09:53 AM EDT (US)   

AoE3 Definitive Edition is now available on Steam so you can enjoy the classic AoE3 gameplay in a fresh lick of paint! Also available through the Microsoft Game pass if you are already signed up to that.

The game touts mod support, whether that includes mods for the original version of the game remains to be seen.

I have a lot of nitpicks about this release. The main issue is the graphics, which appear 'blurred' (likely due to always-on FXAA) and are somewhat less 'readable' than the original.

I'm going to make a 'first impressions' thread in OD because there's a lot that's really strange about this release (e.g. the deck builder UI has been made objectively worse, for no apparent reason).

Biggest complaint is that the remaster only improved the look of the game a little bit unlike with 2 where the change was significant.

I like what they did with the game and while I paid $15 for this recently while not realizing all three games definitive were available for almost nothing on steam.

FYI there are only around 10 people who stream AOE3 on Twitchtv while there are about 50 streaming AOE2 definitive. AOE2 is so much more popular.

for now I'm playing 3 every day and trying to become really competent at it. I played it for a year in 2006 after it came out so the learning curve is shorter than with the other 2 games.

Coming off of 8 years being obsessed with Starcraft 2 and the esports scene for it. Totally loving this game and learning all I can.
