This month, we’re throwing down the gauntlet: it’s time to put the Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition AI to the test! It’s time to prove that your biological facilities cannot be matched by a computer’s hard-coded imitations. Your challenge—should you choose to accept it—is to confront and defeat ever-escalating difficulties of our AI during the COMP-STOMP-EXTRAVAGANZA event!
Vanquishing the enemy AI by any means necessarily will unlock several new rewards for you to enjoy:
- Arrows? Why not LASER BEAMS?!
- Three new, AI-themed Profile Icons!
- New Research Complete FX for Buildings!
Starting TODAY through MARCH 9, complete in-game tasks within the time limit to unlock exclusive goodies! The first challenge unlocks a new profile icon and is required to save all of your unlocks:
|DAY ~||🎯 Sign into Xbox Live.
🏆 Unlocks the AI Brain profile icon.
💾 *Required* if you want to save any rewards unlocked during the event!
Each of the following challenges must be unlocked in order and on separate days:
|DAY 1||🔒 Win a Skirmish game against an Easy AI.
🧱 [Mod] Replaces Research Complete FX for buildings with Binary Code.
|DAY 2||🔒 Win a Skirmish game against a Standard AI.

We hope you enjoy this month’s Comp-Stomp-Extravaganza event!
