Age of Empires: DE Release Update - Age of Empires

Hi all, When we set out to re-release the original Age of Empires (as ‘Age of Empires: Definitive Edition’), we had many debates over the extent of restoration that we should undertake.

I hope now come more into the beta, because I was not still in there ^^

We’ll be bringing in a lot more beta players, so you definitely still have a chance at getting in:) keep an eye on your email for the potential invite!

Can those of us who preordered please get beta access? I was anticipating to play this on the 18th. Either way, I’m glad you guys know you can’t rush perfection, and that this will ultimately result in a much better game. :slight_smile:

I already pre ordered from the Microsoft Store! (I think this is the only possibility we can get, is it ?) What can we do for joining the beta ?

LoL AoE is delyed hah… I have feeling this is gonna be to hard for you guys. Keep up the good work but i think its a little bit shame.

We’ll be reaching out to those who pre-ordered soon with more information. Keep an eye on your email! We’ll also be bringing in a bunch more players for the beta, so you definitely still have a chance to be chosen:)

Guys… I never asked you for anything - well, that’s not really true; in fact, I did asked for a AoE remake all of this years. Anyway… If I could be a part of the Beta testers, I would be really really greatfull! So, well… Just consider It! Hahaha!

Am I the only one who thinks this is great news? Btw I pre ordered and applied for the beta weeks ago plz let me join :frowning:

I hope they make some kind of compensation to whom pre ordered and got already charged in the credit card.

Sorry guys, we can’t gaurentee access to anyone, but since we are going to be bringing a bunch more people in you will have a better chance of being brought in now! Make sure to keep an eye out for the potential invite in your email:)

Will you accept players who have not pre-orderd or taken the beta signup already?

We are expecting a Steam Version too just like Cup Head! They listened to the community! and they did very great!

At GamesCom 2017 a lot of people wanted AOE:DE on Steam too and so do i.

Yep, just make sure you sign up now, and you’ll have a chance to get picked:) https://www.ageofempires.com/age-insider-information/

Incredible bad move and bad behaviour from Microsoft to do this just days before release. I expect you will repay us more than just a release.
