Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition is out in October

It’ll be part of the PC Xbox Game Pass program

Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition has been in the works for a while, but today Microsoft finally announced when it’s going to be available: October 15.

This is the (count it!) third definitive re-release (duh!) in the Age of Empires series, as Microsoft is being a good boy and going in order. It’ll feature 4K visuals and a completely reworked interface. 

Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition will launch on PC (Steam/Windows 10), as well as Xbox Game Pass for PC. The trailer below is looking insanely good: this is one of the most beautiful games of 2020.
