It was back in the middle of 2013 that we first heard about Microsoft’s plan to bring the Age of Empires Franchise to iOS. We originally thought it would be a port of the free to play Age of Empires Online but instead they’re creating an entirely new game in the series. Called Age of Empires: World Domination and developed by KLabs Games, it features known world leaders and historical characters. It’s unclear whether this is a true RTS or a Clash of Clans-like strategy game. Make up your own opinion with this trailer that showcases a few seconds of gameplay:

Age of Empires: World Domination should be out this summer on iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

    Age of Empires 2

    I feel there'll be some freemium aspects even if it has a price tag, just a question of where the balance is.

    Of course if there's timers then forget I said anything, they're never fair.

  • JCho133

    Yep, Clash of Clans clone.

    • PallaZ

      You know..CoC is a clone as well..

      How the heck do you get clash of clans out of that video.

      Are we looking at the same video?

      • Ann0ying

        Its really CoC looking. 2d town building stuff. Battles seems pretty "clashy". And F2P also.
        P.S Maxrolled from twitch.

      • HansKaosu

        Dont think you have played coc.

        The combat looks like Total War. There is no mention of f2p.

        I really doubt its free. Age of empires online did awful.

        Fyi.. coc is not original.. its a clone

        why do my profile keeps switching >_>

      • Ann0ying

        Played lot of CoC years ago. Idk why I thought it is free to play, better if its not. We'll see.

  • denisvjcr

    Another big title ruined by IAPs

    • https://www.youtube.com/HansKaosu HansKaosu

      What? There is no mention of iAPs.

      Seriously. You guys.. *facepalm*

  • mantascorp

    First Dungeon Keeper, then Rollercoaster Tycoon, and now Age of Empires??

    Man, they are just ruining every old franchise with timers and IAP, aren't they?

    The fact is, make the game good enough, and people will pay a premium price for it (see: FTL). Don't nickel-and-dime players who are looking to play an historic franchise on their mobile device. Ugh.

      AoE has been dead since Ensemble got crushed right after Halo Wars I believe. Age of Emires name doesn't mean much anymore especially after Online, atleast for me. Robot Entertainment/Orcs Must Die is what we got from the former team instead.

  • JJE McManus

    First, I'm excited. AoE, c'mon.
    Second, I'm not going to freak out but will make a guess. The heroes are the IAP. So, King Arthur starter for $3. Everybody else $2 and if they're smart they'll do bundles. Weak coin based timers. Ample coin drops except for speed runners and AoE "pros" y'all.
    Third, the horses look like running dumplings.
    OFAP

  • gnome9er

    looks gey

  • Krikaoli

    Ugly.

  • Game.PN

    Ugly graphics! It's okay for me like the graphics of Age of Empires 2 that is more friendly to me

  • Cesar Ramirez

    I have a bad feeling about this ( ._.)

  • Leydz Boomshaka-Irwin

    This game looks aweful!!!

    • khann

      I agree. I got excited when I read Age of Empires, but I was sadly mistaken when I watched the trailer.

  • NPeart

    I hope this isn't some lite rts, that you have to pay to enjoy.

    Great potential for another crapware.
    Need "Age of Mythology" on iPad NOW!

    • ChilLama

      If it was just a port I would be happy.

  • 21tigermike

    Pfft. that guy is such a Cnut.

  • jayfisch

    I think it's more in the freemium kingdom builder vein but with some interesting real time squad tactics mechanics

  • hourglass

    I'm very interested in seeing how this turns out. Why didn't they just port AoE 1? That game could literally run on a toaster.

  • ste86uk

    All I can do is hope it turns out well and the graphics improve, I love age of empires I remember playing them endlessly on the pc when I was a teenager.

  • StarViruZ

    TBH I like the PC version and the mobile versions (java), very cool these days...
