Details of the feature changes:
As we have reported, the special version of Empire – AOE Rise of Rome remake, is being tested by NPH VTC Game and Microsoft with a number of lucky gamers when pre-registered and below is what KenhTinGame summarizes after the trial run.
Basically, compared to the old version, AOE Rise of Rome remake brings an upgrade in terms of graphics and certain changes in game features that are already very familiar to the Vietnamese AoE gaming community. In addition, NPH also has adjustments related to the stats of the troops to balance the gameplay more.
AOE Rise of Rome remake has markedly improved graphics compared to the old version
The first adjustment that we know is that Walking through the field is not available in Skirmish, the player can choose “Walking through the field” which can be selected in the game’s settings if desired and the game’s default will is not to go through.
About the balance of the army was also announced by NPH, but this is an adjustment and change compared to the original AOE version, you do not use it for reference with other AOE versions. Another stat is Team bonus is also added but only activated for yourself and allies when playing 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 modes.
Going through the field
The option for “Walk through the field” is selectable in the game’s settings. The default setting is to go through the field. You can choose to install “Solid Farm” in the host/lobby to not let it cross the field.
There is a “spectator” mechanism that allows players to see the games in progress (optional when setting up a host/lobby)
Adding technology in BC
Increase the sight of the hut Increase the speed of applying for troops (except marines) Upgrade the BE to accommodate 8 people
Mechanism of buying gold in BM
Exchange 100 real/wood = 50 gold, 100 stone = 65 gold (gold troops no longer limit resources on the map)
Continuous work feature
Hold shift to assign farmers / troops to do things in order (for example, you can let people build BE then shift only to trees, after building houses, people will go to cut wood) BG, BS, BN houses After the construction is complete, people will automatically work with the nearest resource. Automatically refresh the field after the field runs out of food (consuming wood)
