As we round out the month and get closer to the excitement of Gamescom 2019, we have a few big updates for all our Age fans!
During the month of August, we will be hosting an exclusive, timed event in the Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition Beta on Steam that will offer a sampling of the “Campaigns” gamemode. For those of you unfamiliar with campaigns, they are a singleplayer mode that includes a series of historically based scenarios with specially curated cut scenes, units, and objectives.
Sound exciting? Good, because Campaign Weekend will feature just that! Beta participants will be able to join forces with the Maid of Orléans herself, Joan of Arc, and battle the English in a remastered version of the age-old classic campaign.
Not signed up for the Age II: DE beta yet? You can still register as an Age Insider for the chance to join us for Campaign Weekend but you’ll need to act fast! The next wave of beta invites will be going out next week, and only Age Insiders with a connected Steam account and DxDiag on file will be considered for this round.
Pretty sure you’ve already signed up, but uncertain about whether you linked your Steam Account? We recently refreshed the profile page settings to allow you to personalize and update your Age Insider preferences more easily. This means that existing Age of Empires Insiders who haven’t connected a Steam account yet can become eligible for the beta (and Campaign Weekend!) by linking a Steam account in their profile settings.
