You know how there are several franchises that pretty much every gamer knows about, no matter how old they are? Age of Empires is one of them. Many attempts to continue the strategy legacy have been launched over the years, not all have succeeded. Now, Microsoft Studios has brought Age of Empires: Castle Siege to Windows players everywhere. Quite literally everywhere, as the competitive online game can be played on computers, tablets and mobile phones, while at home or on the go. Which civilization you choose to play as is entirely up to you, whether that’s the Franks, the Britons or the Teutonic Order. Each group has its strengths and weaknesses in terms of offense or defense.
Age of Empires: Castle Siege is available for Windows users, meaning that the free strategy game can be played on computers that run on Windows 8, Windows tablets and the Windows Phone. Thanks to cross-platform technology, all players from around the world can join the same free-to-play world and battle against each other in complex strategy duels. Once you set up an account and get assigned to a piece of land that’s reserved for your units only, there’s nothing to stop you from expanding your territory and building an army of valiant warriors. Collect and manage resources, set up sturdy walls to ward off enemies, and fight your way to the top of the official ranking!
If you need a little bit of time before challenging your friends, feel free to play through a selection of historical battles - including the Fall of Constantinople. Being successful in Age of Empires: Castle Siege all comes down to dexterity and quick reflexes. Use your fingers to control certain units and command them to attack the weakest spot in your opponent’s defense. Should you be playing on your Windows 8 computer, simply use the mouse to give out orders.
