Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten finally gives us Dracula

, | News

Age of Empires II HD gave everyone nostalgic for a taste of the old fashioned real-time strategy game a chance to play with modern resolutions and enchanced Steam features. Now, more than ten years since The Conquerers, Age of Empires II has a new official expansion. The Forgotten, which started as a mod, has been published by Microsoft Studios. The expansion features five new civilizations, Twitch streaming integration, spectating, adds two new modes to multiplayer, and four new story campaigns. One of the campaigns finally brings Vlad Dracula to Age of Empires!

History forged an incredible legend around the man who ruled Wallachia in the mid-14th century. Holding his ground against the vast armies of the expanding Ottoman Empire, his cruel tactics made him the most feared man in all of Eastern Europe. Shall his thirst for blood and the loyalty of his soldiers hold the Turks back for good?

Will he look like Gary Oldman or Bela Lugosi?
