I think the Age of Empires online game started development sometime in 2009 the game has been completed and at this time is in a beta testing phase. It has been announced that it will be ready for world wide release some time in early 2011. I think we can count on this games release in 2011 as it has already been in beta phase for sometime now already.
Gamers already used to the previous versions will discover age of empires online offering many new features to get to grips with in order to have success in the game. One key feature will be that players can gain upgrades by completing in game quests and from exploration of the surrounding areas. The game so far offers 4 types of weapons upgrades as follows.
Personally I do not think this Age of Empires online weapon list that great and can imagine that for developers to make their cash back invested in the development of the game will provide more and better advances or those that pay.
The Gut Ripper weapon upgrade is going to be quite popular and provides a number of advantages to all that use it in battle. Units welding this sword will be well equipped to do extra damage to their enemy and should they try to escape the Gut Ripper will have already snared them slowing down their escape.
