Age of Empires: Castle Siege coming to Android in March
Age of Empires: Castle Siege is the mobile spin-off of Age of Empires, the 1997 PC classic. It debuted on Windows Phone in 2014, and was released for iOS in 2015. Now, developers Smoking Gun Interactive and Microsoft Studios partner up once more, to bring the title to Android devices. The game will be hitting Google's mobile OS in early March, and it will be a free-to-play title.
Age of Empires: Castle Siege is a mix between an RTS and a Tower Defense game. The gameplay revolves around growing your empire, training troops, and invading other players to climb the online leaderboards. It's developed by a team that worked on the hit desktop title Company of Heroes, under the banner of Relic Entertainment, and later worked with Microsoft on several Kinect titles for the Xbox consoles.
In case you were playing Castle Siege on a Windows or iOS device up until now, don't worry. You won't have to start over from scratch, thanks to the game's cross-platform save system. You will be able to install the game on an Android device and load up your progress that was saved on another OS.
As for new players, we have to warn you that this is not the classic Age of Empires experience that you're used to, but a mobile game built from scratch and carrying the same brand.
