Age of Empires II HD: Patch 4.9 is live!

Hey everyone!

In preparation for the Rise of the Rajas release on Monday, we’ve been working nonstop to make sure all of our desired performance improvements are solid in Age of Empires II HD. We are thrilled to release the new 4.9 patch build with some additional improvements, as well as fixes for some of the issues affecting multiplayer users since the previous patch. The full patch notes and discussion thread can be found on our Steam forumsĀ here, but here’s the list of changes:

  • Profiles now remember your campaign progress and hotkey settings. If you have lost your progress please use the I R WINNER cheat to advance back through the campaigns to where you left off.
  • The unit animation stutter in multiplayer games has been mitigated.
  • Players are no longer dropped loading into a multiplayer game when taking longer than 20 seconds.
  • Save and Exit now handles ELO correctly.

Enjoy, and thanks for your support! We are SO excited for the release of the Rise of the Rajas DLC on Monday. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest, and tune in this weekend for the epic Battle for Angkor tournament on Twitch!
