A lot of people dared not hope after the fall of Ensemble Studios...

What do people think? Good? Bad? The only other cartoon RTS i know is Settlers, and none that are 3D. I think it could prospectively be okay. Some of the described features sound good. Plus it seems to hark back to AoM in many respects. F2P suggests that content and civilizations will be released on-goingly. Anyways...

As if I wasn't the first to find this. I check RE's site once a week! Nevertheless, it is extremely pleasing to see.

Not so much because I like THIS idea, but it tells us that RE do have the rights to AoE!

Now, scrap this idea and make AoM 2, kktanks? =P

It may not look like AoE, but it really is the next logical step on from AoE III. AoEO will be essentially AoE III's play style except that you don't lose your home city every-time you reinstall/play on someone elses computer.

There seem to be a rough equivalent of god powers from AoM. I suspect there may be civilization unique units like AoE 2. There is "Class Equipment" that can be earned as loot and applied to lines of units, all of which appear with that item. There are Co-op missions. It doesn't look like Age but it has taken the best bits of all the games and added more besides.

And, most importantly, its free to play...

I just hope they include some form of map editor, but i guess we will see =(

Terrific news! The cartoon graphics surprised me a little, but I guess it'll make it run smoother.

Anyone fancy a wager on what civilization they'll add first after Greece?

I'm betting on Egypt or Rome. Gauls would also be cool.
