Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms expansion to be released on Nov. 5 for PC

Age of Empires II HD, the graphically revamped version of the classic RTS game, first developed by the now defunct Ensemble Studios, will get its second expansion pack on November 5 for Windows desktop gamers. It's called Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms, and it's being developed by the Forgotten Empires team, which previously released The Forgotten expansion for the same game.

As you might expect from the title, the expansion will include new campaigns, units and more that center on the African civilizations. It will also feature English voice acting for the campaigns. Pricing for the expansion has yet to be revealed. The Forgotten Empires team is already working on another project for Microsoft; Age of Mythology: Tale of the Dragon, an expansion for the recently launched Age of Mythology: Extended Edition revamp, again based on an old Ensemble Studios RTS title.
