Guys as you might now, the graphics engine used for AoM is to old and so outdated. It is obvious they cant use the same Graphics engine for improved visuals.
So I have two speculations about it:
1-The most likely option is that they will use the AoE 3 engine, so they keep it optimized and beautifuly made at the same time, theres no AoE game as beauty as AOE 3 right now, so I think that will work pretty well.
2-Considering AoE 4 is more like AoM, everything is almost the same, even the chickens… they might have been planning this from a while ago and not just right now. I mean even before making AoE 4 they might have thought about AoM Retold. And this means they might be using the AoE 4 graphics engine for AoM Retold. Town center is pretty much like the ones from AOM, the farms too, the gameplay and the holy/aura gold effect surrounding some units are quite the same, and some other more.
So actually imagine AOM in the AOE 4 engine, being made by the perfectionist people from forgotten empires who brought the AoE 2 and 3 DE masterpieces (specially the last one)… in other words, AoE 4 perfect sound and musicalization team plus FE studio graphics improvement to make it looks next gen while keeping the essence of the game… (improved gameplay as well)
If this is the case, which seems to be the easiest one to follow, this game might be the bomb! it could not be any better, it would be a dream because actually AOE 4 engine is so pleasent to the eyes (just bad graphics lol), but improved details, graphics, earth and visual effects would make it amazing. Can you imagine? And its not to crazy to be real, remember thats the same engine of the game (CoH) that let us use V2 bombs for a complete devastation, misil rains, terrain deformation, dust, epic explotions and many other features alike the original AOM. It means that engine might be ready to handle AoM with nowdays graphics.
Just remember that for the retold intro they made pozeidon and zeus exactly the same than the original game!! They could be that much detailed in the final game, considering the perfection brought for AoE 3.
Well those are just my thoughts, what do you think so far? Am I right or do you think I am completely mental?
