It seems Age of Empires has no boundaries, with recent news that the Free-to-Play game has made its way over to Steam and is available now to play. The latest in the long-running Age of Empires franchise, Age of Empires Online allows players to play as some of the greatest ancient civilisations including the Greeks, Egyptians, Persians, and Celts.
As players grow their empires and look for new adventures, Age of Empires Online delivers the opportunity to buy new Premium Content Packs – everything from entirely new civilizations to Booster Packs with new game modes and more. It’s the biggest Age of Empires game ever.
What’s more, Age of Empires Online adds new social interaction, customization, and MMORPG gameplay in an evolving and persistent world. Play co-operatively or competitively, craft and trade items, and level up by completing quests – all for free! Plus, Age of Empires Online still offers all the classic RTS gameplay, empowering players to build mighty empires, manage resources, earn rewards, and battle their way into rich new worlds full of lively villagers, epic warriors, and historically-themed architecture.
While some may scoff at the more cartoon cel-shaded style art, overall it seems to be quite a fun game, and at the very least a well-shaped free-to-play title. Also to celebrate coming to Steam, all Civilisation and Booster Packs are 50%, which offers a range of new content.

I played the Beta a reasonable amount... my only concern is how long it took just to unlock the 'co-op' game mode... (I never actually played a 'co-op' map coz my bro didn't get that far into the game...)
I see all the DLC is bundled @ ~$17AUD on steam atm which is a pretty good price (especially when compared to GFWL's prices (or the over-inflated cost of 'MS points')) tho it sorta depends on how much of the game you really wanna dig in to.

To play multiplayer you have to pay.
