    just a lil snippet from the creators...

    The Age of Empires III engine is a fully DX9, Shader 3.0 compliant engine with more technical bells and whistles than any other PC game to date. As you can see from the screenshots, we have a world that feels bright and sunny, but with a softness and depth that hasn't been seen before. From things like self-shadowing to HDR (high dynamic range) lighting to water that has proper Fresnel reflectance properties, this is a very high-end graphics engine.


    again my 6800gt will be able to take advantage of shader 3.0 in yet another title :)

    Hmm, does it worry anybody else that the game might need a 6800 to run at a decent pace?

    It's not a "microsoft" game. Microsoft is just the publisher. It's developed by Ensemble.

    6800 and equivalents will be commonplace, if not outdated by the time this game gets released.

    I thought Ensemble was a Microsoft devision.

    Looks nice, gonna need a pretty high powered computer by the looks of it, doesn't keep in tune with the other AOE's.

    Sure it's not a hoax or anything, because I didn't realise they were making a new version.

    1st line says that its shipping the second half of 2005, so I would expect to see it in stores by this summer if not earlier.

    I can almost see a Baldurs Gate style game using an engine like this. If only =p. I loved the first two games, and their expansions. Can't wait for AOE-3.
