I’m not sure if this has been posted before, but I’m trying to pre-order AoE IV and I get an error in the steam shop saying "Your transaction failed because you are trying o buy ‘Age of Empires IV (Pre-Order)’ which requires ownership of ‘Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition’. Please correct the error and try again.
Is this working as intended? Do I really need to buy AoE II: DE to be able to pre-order AoE IV?
Same here. Waiting for response. I want to pre-order and don’t care about AoE II DE.
For more info, I attempted to preorder the regular, 60$ version, not deluxe. I do own AoE II HD.
Same here, I was pumped to get all my pre orders ready today. I will have Bf2042, B4B, and i wanted to top it of with AOE but i have no intention to re purchase the second game.
Just a guess but could this be because AOE4 pre-order gives you Lord’s of the West for AOE2DE free?
I bought the game on a cdkey site so i can pre order =( oh well
It’s probably because you get the DLC for AoE 2 de Lords of the West , when you preorder aoe 4 and it is confusing the system because you don’t own aoe 2 de which is required for Lords of the West
I know why it’s doing it. I’m posting because it’s stupid and needs fixed lmao.
They’ve taken down the ‘free DLC’ offer for pre-ordering 4.
Too bad, I had decided to do that but apparently that deal is gone.
Resolved for me. They removed it; probably will reinstate.
