My friend installed on MS Store and me on steam. We can’t join each other’s games since the update and we don’t see the same game in the public multiplayer. Anybody else facing the same issues?

Your issue has been resolved, and you can now update you game !
Enjoy the update :slight_smile:


I just tried it, it’s still the same for me. It does not work. On my Laptop, the download of the update is always blocked. And on a second pc, I erased and reinstalled AeO3 last night. It does not launch and the download of my ADDons remains blocked.
And it’s the same on my friend’s computer with another microsoft account. It still has the update error.
AeO3 DE from MS STORE.
Please. What should I do now?

How was the issue resolved? I still can’t download the patch or play. I got 386.3 MB since 2 days ago. Every time I try I get the same message. Error downloading.

It hasn’t been resolved. My (PC) game still makes the download error and then nothing… My clock is alsways synchronised. Fix please and help me because I am very sick and this is the only game for me left to play. Where is the solution you write about?

Some people say, you need to deinstall the game, and completly download it again. That should help.
