Age of Empires II: DE gets a battle royale mode and “massive” update next month

A little under a year ago, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition landed, bringing the classic turn-based strategy game into a new era. To celebrate the title's one-year anniversary milestone, publisher Xbox Game Studios has announced a "massive update coming your way this November". "We hope everyone likes cake, because it's birthday time!" Microsoft announces in a preview clip of the upcoming update (included below). "We're celebrating by making Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition bigger and better than it's ever been." While most of the tasty morsels of information about the update's contents won't be shared until closer to its arrival next month, the studio does give us a good peep at some of the goodies in-store. First up, the content drop will include "a new game mode, a supporting 'quick play' system, a truck-load of new features, a humungous list of balance changes, and more. That new game mode is none other than a battle royale format, which gets up to eight players battling it out in a free-for-all style contest, each fighting to be the last still standing.
