Hi,

I already bought the bundle and im also a beta member of AoE2 DE. I just got AoE1 DE, but no sign of AoE2 DE, (since steam says i “already” got the game).

Should i ask for refund? I’m going to get both?

Thank you.

I tried to buy the game as soon as it was announced on xbox stream and the “purchase for myself” option is disabled. I have access to the beta through steam so the shop thinks i already own the game but I DON’T. Help please!

EDIT: I already post this on steam discussions. I’m just trying to attack the issue from all fronts available

Thanks so much for the report. We’re aware and looking into this and will circle back when we have more information.

( I am sorry, this is a repost from Age of Empires II -> Ask for Help, Will getting the Steam 'Age of Empires Definitive Edition Bundle' prevent me to get AOE2DE?
I didn’t realize that I posted in the less active AOE2DE main forum, and I think this needs quicker attention)

Request:

The problem is that the bundle is priced at 14.99€ for beta participants, because Steam thinks we already own AOE2DE. I am guessing that buying this bundle for 14.99€ only gives us AOE1DE and when the beta ends we will lose AOE2DE. So if you are in the beta, getting this bundle right now only gives you AOE1DE, (although at a pretty nice price, 14.99 € in my region), and then have to buy AOE2DE again after the beta

Either that or we get both games for 14.99€.

Bundle: https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/11831

Troubleshooting Steps:

Buy the bundle as a beta participant for 14.99€

Well, the game is available on steam for pre purchase and i can’t buy it because i’m participating like beta tester. But i do not know if in the future the price will be higher and i can pay the actual prize, how can i buy it ?

Same issue here! Please help us to pre-order our lovely game.

As a participant of the closed beta I cannot preorder the game on Steam because Steam thinks I already own the game.

So I’ve tried restarting my Steam client multiple times and seems like not much has changed apart from me being able to buy Age 2 DE but not actually receiving it because I “already own it” (second picture).

Hey there! A few questions:

  • First: did you completely exit and re-launch Steam before attempting to purchase?
  • Can you please include a screenshot of the error message you received when attempting to purchase the bundle.
