Age Royale – Battle Royale Preview

Battle Royale is coming to Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition on the back of the November Anniversary Update, and we’ve planned a massive tournament to celebrate! The first-ever Age Royale tournament will provide a first look at the brand-new game mode coming to Age II: DE, and the action kicks off this weekend on Saturday, October 31 at 15:00 UTC / 8 am PT / 11 am ET!

You can watch the tournament at, or you can visit the streaming channels of any of the contestants playing during the event!

The Contest Begins

Battle Royale pits up to 8 players against each other in a free-for-all contest fought to the last combatant standing. The $10,000 USD Age Royale tournament features sixteen of the best Age of Empires II players and content creators as they battle for supremacy in the all-new game mode.

In Battle Royale, players begin a match with only a few units under their control. As they explore the map, they’ll find and capture military and supply buildings that grant resources for the fight ahead; the more you control, the faster you can bolster and replenish your armies!

However, be vigilant: these buildings can be stolen by other players if they’re able to overwhelm your defenses. All the while, the map will slowly constrict as the match progresses—destroying anything caught in its way.

The single-day Age Royale tournament will continue until one Battle Royale Champion is crowned!
