Here we go again with another content update to Age of Empires: Definitive Edition. This is a smaller update, but introduces some big bug fixes and quality of life improvements to the game experience. Don’t worry; this isn’t the end of our updates—we’re still working away on the issues and features you all want to see—but it is an ideal place to build a granary, setup a barracks, and begin your journey through the ages. Welcome, friends, to Update 11!

Remember that you’ll need update your game in the Windows Store:

  2. Click the [ ∙ ∙ ∙ ] symbol next to your profile picture.
  3. Select Downloads and updates.
  4. Press the Get updates button to automatically detect, download, and install the latest changes to your game!
  5. Open the game. The title screen should read Build 23987.

That’s it; you’re ready to play!

We hope you enjoy everything we’ve included in this latest update! Feel free to post your initial thoughts below, or join in to the full discussion over on the official forum!

    Ik zit nu met versie Bild27473. Is dit de laatste versie?

    I have a problem with the newest update too. My Windows store doesn't see any for it. Also the AoEDE icon in store become gray.
    And my wish: Could You add last age option(choosing the final age)? I wish I could have a bronze age battle in single player :)

      Me too eh! If only I knew this was coming out on steam....

  • deckardcane August 22, 2019

    My main menu version reads "27374".

    I go to Windows Store, Click the 3 dots, "Get Updates", and it says "You're Good To Go" .

    But I am not up to date.
    And I can't update :(

    If it help diagnose - the game icon is in black in white at this update screen when all other icons for apps are colorized.

    Please help...

      Same here, and I can't find an answer anywhere. Wish I waited to buy this game on steam. The support is so awful

    Va genial con cada parche se pone mejor, pero hace falta un botón de agrupamiento como en el Rise of Rome o formaciones como el Age 2 algo que facilite el micromanejo de grandes grupos de unidades

  • furiousforcey July 22, 2019

    Please add a select all army units button, like StarCraft 2.

  • theroot79 July 18, 2019
