: Microsoft today announced a new installment in the Age of Empires
series -- and it's the first to be built specifically for touch devices.
Age of Empires: Castle Siege
is due for release next month on Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 devices, and is in development from Smoking Gun Interactive, the studio that previously worked on numerous Kinect-based games.
The game will comes with in-app purchases available. Age of Empires
fans don't appear to be entirely happy, with the comments sections of both the announcement blog post
and the YouTube trailer filled with complaints.
