Roughly two years ago, Microsoft revealed their plans for bringing the classic RTS franchise Age of Empires to mobile devices. About a year back, the software giant announced that game development company KLab Global is working on the AoE:World Domination for three mobile platforms – Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
Today marks the release of Age of Empires: World Domination for Android devices, along with a soft launch of the iOS version of the game, with absolutely no mention of the Windows Phone version. The mobile-only title features a real-time battle system, just like in the original AoE titles. Based on the free-to-play revenue model, this mobile strategy game offers real-time battles, lets you recreate historical empires through advancements in technology, and pick from over 100 legendary heroes including Joan of Arc, King Arthur, Oda Nobunaga, Cao Cao, Knut the Great and many more.
Just like in previous AoE games, players will have to explore the map to find enemies that are hidden in the fog-of-war. In AoE: World Domination, players can team up heroes and distinct troop types to create the ultimate battle unit. The game offers extensive customisation of an empire, allowing players to build their empire by picking structures from history’s greatest civilizations, all the while building their own devastating army.
Age of Empires: Word Domination is available as a free download supported by in-app purchases on the Google Play Store. The game is said to be available only in select countries as of now, but we’re sure that plans for the game’s global rollout are already in motion.
