Age of Empires IV – Season Five Hotfix 7.0.6026

Today’s hotfix (July 12th) addresses some specific stability and performance issues, that we felt could not wait for our next patch. 

Please Note: As part of downloading to this new Hotfix build, any saved games and observable matches made on previous builds will be unable to be loaded or replayed. 

Thanks again to our amazing community members, all of whom have helped to make Age of Empires what it is today!
