Rise Of Nations is an astonishing masterpiece that is still a fresh memory in the minds of strategy connoisseurs. The game has stood the course of time, and the extended edition sells like hotcakes. This title shook the strategic genre when it arrived in the early 2000s. The game combined the best quirks of other strategy titles like turn-based strategy and added its personal twists. The title blends some of the concepts of Civilization with the overall gameplay of Age of Empires. Rise Of Nations features multiple civilizations alongside their respective abilities, and the extended edition compliments the original features.
The extended edition further improved the successful formula by adding Steam integration and Steam Trading Cards, achievements, Twitch integration, and multiplayer with Elo ranked matches to the game. Although the extended edition never arrived on console, the recent rumor suggests that the game could be making its way to Xbox. The game was recently sighted on the Xbox Store Spring Sale console edition. While the title appears in the store, you can’t purchase it presently — credit to the Twitter user Invader_1986 for spotting this alluring listing.

However, we advise taking the news with a pinch of salt as Microsoft is prone to making these mistakes, like the recent appearance of the Resident Evil Village on the Xbox Game Store turned out to be nothing but a mistake. Rise Of Nations Extended Edition has been a massive success, and the strategy enthusiasts enjoyed the renovated version of the original game. The title arriving on Xbox or consoles, in general, would not be surprising considering the conquest of the title on PC in the strategy genre. The Rise Of Nations Extended Edition is owned by Microsoft, after all.
Fans of the nostalgic title have shown some hype, while others desire a Rise Of Nations sequel altogether. For most of us, including myself, Rise Of Nations is one of the first strategy games we indulged in before discovering the specific after-taste of strategy. Rise Of Nations started a domino effect in the strategy genre that can be felt even with the advent of the new decennium.
