Hush, and stop whatever you are doing, this is more important: Age of Empires II is coming back, this time to Steam, with a refreshed graphics engine and improved multiplayer. Sorry Starcraft 2, peace out League of Legends, the monster is back.

Age of Empires II, released first 14 years ago in 1999, was a stunning game for its time. In the intervening years, it never fully faded from sight, with active modding and player communities persisting to this day.

With a graphics update, and a multiplayer experience that will lean on Steam to help arrange games, the title is all but prepped for a massive comeback. You can snag it as a pre-order on Steam at a 10% discount. I’ll see you online starting April 9th.
