So I got AoE III so far can anyone list in the comment section AoE Online/multiplayer platforms other than steam???
Hello, there is no Steam multiplayer platform/server offered, multiplayer is instead realized through Microsoft’s ESO (Ensemble Studios Online) service for all PC versions of the game. Regardless of how you bought the game, this service is not tied to Steam in any way and everyone can play on ESO together.
To access ESO, click on Multiplayer -> ES Online from the main game menu.
Sounds like you have pirate copy. you asked this before.
