Age of Empires Online gameplay footage

Off-screen video from Gamescom

Here's one of the first Age of Empires Online gameplay videos, care of our camera and a demonstration at Gamescom.

Age of Empires Online was announced earlier this week at the German show, much to our surprise (a PC game? From Microsoft?)

Speaking to CVG this week, Microsoft Games Studios GM, Dave Luehmann estimated that around 75% of Age of Empires Online's developers worked on the series before.

In the same interview the MGS man claimed Microsoft is finally looking to "invest" in Windows gaming. About time, eh?
