New Age of Empires Online Civilizations Revealed
We already knew that Age of Empires Online, slated for release August 16, will launch with two playable civilizations: the Greeks and the Egyptians. The game will be adding new premium content monthly to further expand the gameplay options in a persistent and evolving world, and we’ve been offered a sneak peak at two new civilizations and a Booster Pack coming by the end of 2011: the Celtic civilization, the Persian Civilization, and the Skirmish Hall Booster Pack.
The Celts bring to the game the frenzied Woad Raiders, the dangerous Druids, and the powerful Celtic Swordsmen, while the Persians introduce the Immortals, mounted Persian Archers, and special attack elephants.
The Skirmish Hall Booster Pack allows players to customize their starting Age, forces, resources, difficulty levels, and the number of enemies.
