The classic Age of Empires reappeared in a Definitive Edition last year, and when celebrating the first anniversary of the release, the team had some news to share regarding the future, as we'll be seeing an Age of Empires segment on Inside Xbox next month, featuring some "very exciting announcements".

We also hear that Update 8 is in the works as well, which is due to be released soon and bring features the community have been asking for. The full patch notes can be seen below:

Mixed tech Queues - Players can now queue units and techs at the same time from buildings
Added resolution options to full screen mode
Fallen units now decay over time

Unit Behavior

Units navigate better when going through narrow paths
Improved intercept targeting behavior
Ship acceleration removed to improve tasked response times
Builders no longer fail to build wall pieces under certain circumstances


AI should no longer get stuck in the Stone Age under certain circumstances
AI can now hunt Elephants
AI Scouts are less prone to killing themselves to hazards
AI units pick their targets better
General AI build orders/strategies have been updated to be more efficient

That's about the long and the short of it in terms of the blog post, but we're very intrigued by the "juicy" information they're promising for next month. What could it be?
