Conquerors is the expansion of the great game Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings. This expansion bears the same play mode, i.e the same history and strategy in real time. The big difference that shows the wisdom of the people of Microsoft and Ensemble study is that it adds 5 new civilizations (the Hun, Aztec, Mayan, Korean and Spanish) and substantially improves the artificial intelligence both of your enemies and of the villagers, in addition to providing new technologies for each civilization. In the campaigns mode, it has added three new campaigns, while in the scenario mode, the battle of the conquerors has been added. As we can see, there are many innovations that have been added to this excellent game. Age of Kings is a game set in the Middle Age, with the format of a strategy game in real time, based on choosing a civilization out of the 12 ones and making this civilization flourish, so it is eventually able to attack the other civilizations. Conquerors looks for everything: the expansion achieves the improvement of the few weak points the game used to have - the artificial intelligence of the villagers and the enemies (after you build a camp miner, the villagers are put to collect gold by themselves), your enemies seek for holes and do not clash against your walls, you can build castles which are vital for the defense of the cities. Five new civilizations were added, as well as new campaigns. These are El Cid, Attila the Hun and Moctezuma, each one with its correspondent scenario. And there is also the Conquerors campaign, with eight campaigns on a single screen. Each civilization has a unique technological advantage, developed once the last age is reached, for example, Chinese Rocketry, Japanese Kataparuto, British Yeomen and Persian Mahouts. This patch fixes several errors and provides enhancements to the original release.
