It’s been a whole year since we launched Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, and what a year it has been! We’ve celebrated everything from the Lunar New Year through May-hem and took a Summer World Tour, all while sending transport ship after transport ship of tweaks, balance changes, and improvements to the game—all along with the guidance of the community, of course. It’s been an amazing journey thus far, and we’re excited to finally share the Anniversary Update with all of you to celebrate YEAR ONE of this grand adventure!
The celebration isn’t just limited to game content; we decided to flex our art muscles to set you up with some exclusive pieces to share your love for Age II: DE on your computer. Check out the results below: from official event backgrounds to fan art created by the talented artists over here at World’s Edge—all for your enjoyment!
Thank you for being here; we can’t wait to continue the journey in the year to come!
November Anniversary Event
Of course, every one of our Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition events comes with a beautiful, event-themed wallpaper to help celebrate, and it wouldn’t be a party without some of the most iconic characters introduced over the 20 years of Age II—plus, a LOT of confetti! Now you AND your computer can celebrate in style with this magnificent piece! (Especially with that llama! 😉)
The anniversary celebrations continue! What’s been your favorite Age II: DE moment from year one? Let us know in the comments below!
