Invites for the Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition closed beta will be released in waves. Below is the currently announced schedule of invite waves.
Even if you are not one of the insiders invited to the AoE II: DE beta on the day invites are sent, there will be many more opportunities to be invited in the coming weeks leading up to release in fall 2019.
What to Expect
- All the beta invites are not sent out at the same time. Some may receive invites early and you may happen to receive it a few hours later.
- Be patient. As stated in the first point, you may receive the beta invite hours after someone else did.
- The first email isn’t the final email. The first email will say you were selected to participate in the beta. The second email will provide instructions on how to access the beta and beta forums.
- Do not ping people, especially staff or moderators, in regards to whether the beta invites have all been sent for the day. This process can take hours. Paging or asking people about it will only cause frustration because they do not have the power over who received an invite or not.
- Remember to carefully read and follow the instructions in the email before asking questions.
- If you are encountering any issues with beta forum access, please see this topic. If you are encountering any issues with the beta itself, please post those to the beta forum only since the beta is under NDA.
- Check all your mail folders, including spam or junk folders, for an invite and any other insider communication. You may need to add email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe sender list.
