Don't know if it's been posted here before, but there is a whole historical documentary with a few clips up already being launched alongside the game:

Would have loved to try this out today, but no, city power had other ideas for me.

Having a blast so far, doubt I'll do the single player any time soon, mainly just skirmish and multiplayer (with some mp vs AI for me too). But I have to say the "Art of War" training missions are quite challenging to get gold. The best I can muster for the first economy one is 5:45, lol.

But it's addictive and I have tried like 6 times now already, but must do some work now first before trying to get that elusive gold medal :D

There really is a lot to do and accomplish, I see each race has their own masteries that you can earn / obtain with challenges also along the way. Its very relaxing to play too and can see myself playing this when I just want to have a chill out session.

I see in the videos @ponder posted they use 720p, I was hoping to enjoy 4K. The work's laptop is a Radeon 530, I suppose I will have to play 720p too ?

All the reviews say it didn't live up to the hype Microsoft created, with graphics from 2010. But I see it's on Game Pass, so definitely gonna try it out.

The graphics are OK, nothing special. The gameplay is decent.
I'm currently doing the Norman campaign, and I must say I'm enjoying the history and factoid video's between missions. They did a lot of work in that department. But maybe it's just because I'm a bit of a history nerd.

The video's are extremely well done. I really like the soldier overlay on real life locations.
The game uses 100% GPU - 2070 Super. Everything on high.

The video production quality and history story elements are so well done!

Wish the graphics were a bit better though... Enabling HDR does make it look better with highlights popping, and gameplay is silky smooth, but there is more left to be desired in the graphics department.
