Microsoft is planning to offer its popular “Age of Empires” game for IOS and Android devices through a tie-up with Japan’s KLab Inc, seeking to capture mobile game market.

The original Age of Empires on the PC had twelve different civilizations to play. Each group had its own abilities, units, and buildings. The technology tree was also vastly different for each society as it evolved.

The gameplay is based around advancement through the four ages: the stone age, the tool age, the bronze age, and the iron age. Each new era give the player an advantage over any enemies that are still lagging behind. Those stone axes won’t do so well against bronze armor. This is the heart of the game, and will more than likely be included in the mobile edition.

Age of Empires is being developed for mobile by Japanese smartphone game developer KLab, which will be released before the end of March.
