Earlier this week we asked on our social channels:
Did you know you could play on LAN in Age of Empires II HD? When was the last time you got together with friends for a LAN game?

Many of you not only shared the last time you invited everyone over for a LAN party, but you also asked how to create a LAN game in AoE II HD. Below are the quick and easy instructions on how you host a local game for you and your friends so you can enjoy low ping.
- You will need an internet connection to set up the game.
- Your friends will all need to be on the same local internet connection as you.
- Host a multiplayer game and have your friends join as normal.
- If all of your friends are on the same local internet connection and join the game, the game’s connection will then automatically turn local.
That’s it! Time to play.
