πŸ›  Server Maintenance - Wednesday, April 10 - I, II, III DE, and IV

WHAT: Server Maintenance (Multiplayer Servers)

WHEN: 2024-04-10T21:00:00Z

EST. DOWNTIME: 1-2 HOURS

GAMES & PLATFORMS:
Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (Steam / Microsoft Store )

OBJECTIVES:

Routine server maintenance; no player-facing changes.

DETAILS:

This coming Wednesday, April 10, the platform team will be taking the multiplayer servers down for regular maintenance. Please note:

  • Online matchmaking will be disabled exactly one hour before the maintenance window to prevent disruption to newly-formed matches.
  • Any matches still in progress at the start of the maintenance window will be disrupted when the servers are taken offline.
  • DURING THE MAINTENANCE WINDOW, YOU WILL STILL BE ABLE TO LAUNCH THE GAME, BUT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MATCHMAKE OR ACCESS ANY ONLINE FEATURES.

To prevent any interruptions, we recommend wrapping up any games at least 10 minutes before the maintenance window. The downtime is expected to last between 1 and 2 hours . You can watch this thread for any changes to the schedule as they arise, as well as the all-clear when the maintenance is complete.

Thank you for your patience!

Is it possible that preparation for maintenance is having an effect this early?
I just tried to log into multiplayer after setting the game up on a new computer and it keeps failing.

I tried the suggested fixes here and they do not seem to be working:

Any ideas?

A forewarning to everyone that the multiplayer services will be unavailable for around 1-2 hour starting in 1 hour (2pm PT/ 21:00 UTC) as they undergo routine maintenance. Please check the schedule above and plan ahead to prevent the down-time from disrupting your matches!
