Age of Empires 2 to hit the PS2 in 2001.
Apparently Microsoft's hit real-time strategy title Age of Empires 2: the Age of Kings, is to appear in Japan as a Playstation 2 title sometime in 2001. The acclaimed title gives the player the reins of thirteen civilizations which dominated the world between 500 A.D. and 1500 A.D. These civilizations are the Britons, Byzantines, Celts, Chinese, Franks, Goths, Japanese, Mongols, Persians, Saracens, Teutons and the Turks. This extensive variety really added some spice to the PC version, and strategy fans should already be getting excited for this port. The player steers his or her civilization from the chaotic Dark Age through the glorious Imperial Age. Just like in the PC version of the title, AOE2 for Playstation 2 will support online play. It should be quite interesting to see how this one turns out; I for one can't wait to see what additions might be made to the game for its 128-bit debut.
