New Strategy Game from Ex-Age Of Empires Devs

Recommended Posts

Gaming website Kotaku has revealed that an Ensemble Studios incarnate named Robot Entertainment is working on a strategy game codenamed Spartan, that is similar to Age of Empires.

Kotaku says that the game may share a lot with the AoE core gameplay, with maybe some RPG elements and a visual change in direction.

Personally I gather these changes to gameplay and graphics are meant to make RTS more accessible to casual gamers. It would agree with the reason Ensemble Studios was dissolved in the first place and with recent trends in the game industry. Do you agree? What do you predict Spartan will be like?

While that screen looks...odd, i'm excited for any strategy game made by the AoE devs.

I am a little worried microsoft will make this multiplatform, which will inevitably result in design simplifications to accomodate the 360 controller.

Remember, people, AoE3's ingame art looked very cartoony as well, by the time it was in pre-pre-pre-pre-alpha phase, and it only got better. A lot better, actually.

If a spiritual successor to Age of Empires is indeed in development then I certainly hope the gameplay is not watered down in order to make it more "accessible to casual gamers." There's enough games which cater to that demographic already.
