I bought the basic version on windows store.

Bro i hope you are reading this If civ name doesn't matter at all. You can just remove Age of Empire and called whatever fictional medieval game

Could it be names of variant civs are a riddle from devs?

Bro i want to give you some examples about variant civs so you guys make it better.For example you guys added italy to the game its variant can be naples or milan,mongol variant golden horde or timurids not some person or some order i think it should be this way.

But i like the idea of jeanne darc starting as peasent and lvl ups to a warrior its really cool but she is not a civ.Still i will play it so dont change it i want to see what you guys did.(Only the name can be changed)

I’m assuming the answer is now, given its not plastered everywhere but…Would anyone be able to confirm if the expansion is going to be included in the GamePass subscription? - Not just a slight discount

Kind Regards,

you need to buy it separately

Japanese baby, let’s gooooo!

I’m not expecting a ton as far as this civ goes, but as long as it holds its own, I look forward to it.
