  • bettinglizard99 January 24, 2020

    can you give me a free copy of dowloadeable aoe IV because i paid 600 rand for steam collection of aoe III.the game refused to install.the key didn't work

      First of all, that's not possible, there's no key involved on steam if you purchased from them directly, you likely purchased a key from a reseller. Second of all, do you really think this is the place to beg?

    • pinkpenguin3013 August 7, 2019

      You dont have to, but its only 15 bucks, and considering all the work they put into remastering everything - that's really nothing compared to what you're getting.

    best news this summer ! wallet ready

  • cro321 June 15, 2019

    I could never get AOE:DE to run on windows store.

    So, thank you for this steam release. Im sure the modding community will have ALL kinds of neat content once steam workshop is enabled

    • esocniceking June 21, 2019

      I don’t think there is gonna be Steam Workshop for the Definitive Editions. They want to establish as a central mod hub so that both Steam and MS Store players have access to the same mods.

  • danjimlaz June 13, 2019

    Hi all! Can we expect a similar edition at the age of mythology?

    thanks for answer see you XD

  • mrcrazyhuhn June 11, 2019
