Hello Age forum-goers!
As you’ve likely noticed, a brand-new Insiders category has appeared on the forum. This isn’t a mistake; in fact, the new category marks the first of many quality of life changes on the way for our Age Insiders!
What is it?
The Insiders category is a place where Insiders (and soon-to-be-Insiders) can talk and learn more about the opportunities that come with being an Age Insider.
- Have questions about what it means to be an Insider? Ask them here!
- Having trouble with your application? Ask for help!
- Want to know what betas are coming soon? You’ll find updates here!
In short, it’s a place for Insiders to hang out and talk when they’re between beta opportunities: a place where they can discuss, ask questions, and provide feedback about the Insider program itself! Though the forum is accessible to anyone who wants to learn more about the program, we’re working towards a future where our Insiders can also display a shiny badge and title on their profile—a special way for them to show off their dedication to their favorite Age games!
Note that this is NOT a place for Insiders to discuss confidential, beta-related information. There are super secret forums that will open up for players who are selected for any given opportunity!
Other Insider changes
In addition to a new discussion forum, we’ve also revisited and rebuild the registration process for those of you still looking to join the Insider program. Whether you had trouble completing it previously or want to invite your friends, you can visit https://www.ageofempires.com/ to check out the new registration flow!
We’ve also released a new Profile page where you can review your Insider details and update your information. Give it a look and make sure your DxDiag and Steam details are correct—we use this information when selecting our beta participants!
These are only the first steps we’re taking to expand the Insider program, and we’re excited to share some of the other big changes that are still in the works! For now: a huge THANK YOU to all of our current and future Age Insiders for joining us on this journey; we can’t wait to work with you soon!
