You know how we told you that Microsoft's secret "Project S" game played a lot like Age of Empires? Well, that's probably because it was Age of Empires. Namely, a new game called Age of Empires Online.
Earlier today, a new Twitter account was registered and launched for AgeofEmpires, urging people to sign up to a beta for a new game called Age of Empires Online. The art used on the page is the same we saw when we first learned of Microsoft's "Project S".
The website it points towards isn't currently active, but it's registered as www.ageofempiresonline.com.
This should be good news for fans of the series, who had long given it up for dead since original developers Ensemble were shuttered by Microsoft. They'll also be pleased to know that the game's being developed by Robot Entertainment, which is comprised of former Ensemble developers.
We'll update with more information on the game when it comes to hand.
