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 ageofempires.com, 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!

    For Age of Mythology players who fancy a taste of Battle Royale with a bit of a different rule set check out my Steam Workshop RMS script: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1843789593

      That's true, but I think they wanted to include as many people as different nationalities and languages as possible, and also include the most popular casters from different platforms, my guess is that they went for diversity. Take into account that Liereyy and MBL are also missing, and they played the final of the KOTD3 just a few days ago.

    This reminds me a lot of the 2nd Dracula campaign or the final Kotyan Khan (Hungary storyline) campaign, where you control villages to be able to control units.
