Some amazing news today guys and gals, Ensemble Studios the makers of the Age of Empires series is re-releasing Age of Empires II on steam, with full support for Steam Workshop. I can wait to see all the mods the community is going to start releasing.
One of the biggest selling points for me is multi-monitor support and high resolution game play. This is arguably one of the best RTS games ever made. I have great memories of playing black forest, chopping deep into the woods and building 100+ walls to keep out the enemy was hours of fun.
It is on sale until the 9th of April 2013, and if you pre-order before the 9th you will get special early access from the 5th April 2013.
This is well worth picking up for steam support and bug fixes, playing AoE II after vista was tedious at times. There is a reason steam is so popular, it makes it so easy to download and play games. A side note you can still play the original Age of Empires II online using GamerRanger: http://www.gameranger.com/
