Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition – Hotfix 114480

Today’s hotfix is aimed at addressing pressing performance and gameplay related issues.

Stability and Performance

  • Fixed an issue that could result in freezes or crashes during gameplay.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed Units to be fused as a single entity in one tile following a certain order of commands.

Ongoing Investigation

  • We are still looking into an issue where the Quick Play screen will freeze upon finding a match when having any Team map bans selected. In the meantime, please do not select any Team map bans before queueing to avoid the issue.
  • We are still looking into additional reports of games freezing or crashing on all platforms.

Please note that custom mods may not be compatible with the latest game update. If you are experiencing issues launching or playing the game after downloading the new build, try disabling your installed mods before trying again.
