I’d like to see a remake of the first Age of Empires game, with the chronological frame spanning from >10,000 BC to around 500 AD (so basically prehistoric times to the end of classical antiquity). I love the ancient setting of the first game, but I wish it could employ some of the updated mechanics and gameplay of later entries in the series.
Skirmish: Your traditional Age game.
Regicide: Kill the enemy’s ruler unit and you vanquish them.
Capture the Relic: Like it is in AoeE2.
Historical Battles: A series of scenarios based on assorted battles from world history. For each battle, you would be able to pick a side. Possible battles include:
- Kadesh, 1274 BC (Egyptians versus Hittites)
- Muye, 1046 (Both belligerents are Chinese, Shang versus Zhou)
- Jerusalem, 701 BC (Kushites versus Assyrians)
- Salamis, 480 BC (Greeks versus Persians)
- Chaeronea, 338 BC (Macedonians versus Greeks)
- Gaugamela, 331 BC (Macedonians versus Persians)
- Cannae, 216 BC (Carthaginians versus Romans)
- Mobei, 119 BC (Chinese versus Huns)
- Alesia, 52 BC (Romans versus Gauls)
- Actium, 31 BC (Egyptians versus Romans)
- Meroe, 350 AD (Kushites versus Axumites)
- Catalaunian Plains, 451 AD (Romans versus Huns)
- Chinese (Shang to Han Empires)
(Will update later as I think of more ideas.)
