Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms is the second new official expansion for the cult classic strategy game, Age of Empires II. The expansion was developed by SkyBox Labs and Forgotten Empires and it was published by Microsoft Studios on November 5th, 2015.

Four new Civilizations have been implemented into the game. The Berbers (do whatever it takes to unite the tribes of Northern Africa and embark on a journey to Europe), Malians (be a worthy successor of the great Mansa Musa and strive to become the mightiest king that Western Africa ever had), Ethiopians (see how powerful the Aksumite empire once was and become a ruler of the Red Sea), and Portuguese (begin your journey towards the new world as you find new routes to undiscovered lands and create even more trade routes to the great African empires).

Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms features four brand new fully voiced campaigns. In Tariq ibn Ziyad players are tasked with leading a mighty army of Berbers and Arabs against the vicious Visigoths and declaring war to the almighty Merovingian kingdom. In the Sundjata campaign players take the role of the crippled prince of Mali, Sundjata, as he aims to overthrow the strategic King of Sosso, Sumanguru, and become the supreme ruler of West Africa. The Francisco de Almeida campaign follows the expeditions of brave Portuguese explorers that just came back from India, and the next task is establishing an empire that will span over three continents and two enormous oceans. Lastly, the Yodit campaign shows how the stunning exiled princess Yodit was exiled from her country but she still managed to become a ferocious queen that no one could defy.

Use new generic units and technologies like Arrowslits, Arson, Fire Gallery, Siege Towers, and much more. Enjoy the new Sudden Death Game Mode in which you have to defend your town center which loses you the game if it's destroyed!

Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms features enhanced AI, 10 new maps, 8 new maps based on real-world locations, 5 new random maps, 10 challenging new terrains, complex new Scenario Editor Objects, Spectator Mode, and more!

Scant few games stand the test of time and retain a large active player base sixteen years after release. But not only has Age of Empires II endured, it has thrived. It’s gained new steam thanks in part to an official high-definition re-release but mostly due to the ragtag group of modders-turned-developers who made that release possible. Forgotten Empires filled the game with new stuff and rebalanced the multiplayer in one enormous mod and then two HD expansions: The Forgotten and the rec...

Many ‘HD’ re-releases of older games fix them to run easily on modern systems, tart them up a touch, then pop them onto (virtual) shop shelves, but Age of Empires II HD has actually brought the game back into active development. Sixteen years after AoE 2’s initial release, AoE 2 HD has received its second new expansion. Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms just came out, adding four new civilizations with four new campaigns, along with new maps, units, and, y’know, ...
