Age of Empires 2 Rise of the Rajas features new civilizations and more

Set in southeast Asia, this expansion features four new civilizations. Each with its own fully voice-acted campaign. As well as an all-new map type, new units and fixes. Burmese – Ascend to power, quash a treacherous rebellion, and restore the Burmese monarchy to its former glory. Khmer – Construct the largest religious monument in the world and amass an immortal army of devastating siege weapons. Malay – Rebuild the largest thalassocracy to ever exist. Leave your mark on the region while hopping from island to island and rule the Southeast Asian archipelago.

In any case, wonderful news and a great early Christmas present. Thank you to the developers for the continued development and support of this awesome game. And the tournament featuring the best players in the world including the Viper, Dogao, Daut, Fire, Slam, Nicov, RiuT and Tatoh is a brilliant marketing campaign. Hopefully, they will spread the news on that. This tournament is Dec 17 – 18. Hosted by Zero Empires, Resonance22, T900 and Nilpferd.

This new expansion looks awesome. A lot of players have been asking for a South Asian expansion pack for countless years and that’s what we exactly got. Bottom line is, be grateful for what the developers have done at keeping Age of Empires 2 alive and kicking.
