Age of Empires 3 Server Upgrade Begins Monday, 3/14!

Land Ho!

It’s finally time for the long-awaited Age of Empires 3 server upgrade! Last month, we asked our awesome Age 3 community to help us test the new servers, and boy did you ever come through! We got tons of great data that helped us make sure that the new hardware was up to snuff, and now it’s time to roll it out.

To ensure a smooth transition, we need to take the servers offline for a bit longer than your typical maintenance break. Here are the details:

  • The Age of Empires 3 servers will be offline on Monday, March 14 beginning at around 7:00 PM PST.
  • Service will resume (running on our slick new tech) on Tuesday, March 15 at around 8:00 PM PST.

We expect this upgrade to significantly improve quality of life for our Age 3 players, including increased server stability and making it much easier to reset your password. Any players who have been unable to reset their passwords are encouraged to try again after service resumes on Tuesday.

We will post updates on our Facebook and Twitter feeds, so be sure to follow for the latest news!
