AoEII HD features support for 1080p+ displays, an “enhanced visual engine” for better textures and lighting effects, and contains all campaigns and content for both the original game and The Conquerers expansion. Also thrown into the mix is support for Steam Workshop, which means you can expect all sorts of mods for the game in time, as well as the usual Steam story of achievements, cloud saving, leaderboards and matchmaking.
