I’ve to say that I think it’s really unacceptable that they sort of have forgotten about Age of empires 1 & Age of mythology games and their playerbase with things like not providing any sort of new content, expansions etc but also not even MENTIONING them in interviews lately.
Even though they are talking about Age of empires 4 which I’m excited about, they still talk about Age of empires 2 & 3 and all of the continuing new content that comes to it which is super nice! But what about Age 1 & AoM? Where is the love and support to those playerbase?
The reason I belive is that when it comes to Age1 the DE didn’t do much to change the gameplay aspect just gave us a bit better graphics & awesome soundtrack.
But the issue is the GAMEPLAY even the DE version feels so outdated which is the main issue I believe that they aren’t making new content for it. This problem is causing that less and less people are interested in this game not because they don’t like ancient history and the timeline but because the game play is miles behind AoE2 and other titles in this franchise.
I still to this day think the best thing would had been to reboot the franchise with AoE4 and have ancient timeline instead of AoE2 and make it better this time because I can guarantee you that many more will start becoming more interested in that setting.
Same thing goes for AoM, give us at least a DE version but I personally want AoM2 with all the old civs (minus the Chinese) and then also introduce new civs too to make it fresh.
There are MANY players waiting for this to happen, please Microsoft don’t forget about us. We are here awaiting for good news…
