AOE DE on Windows installed

As you know, i preordered AOE DE months ago and couldn’t wait for it to play. After the game got delayed, without me asking for it, i got a refund for the game.

But the game is still installed on my system and i usually would have access to the game, despite it is now being not paid due to refund.

How is this handled now? I’m sure, all of the people, who paid for it and then installed it, and received a refund now have the game still on their pcs.

You will learn it’s locked when you try to run it at release.

Yeah, the game is locked. You’ll have to re-buy it.
