New Scenario!

It has been one year since the world had its first look at Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition at E3! To celebrate, we’ve revisited the demonstration and created the Mongol Raiders scenario. Test your skills defeating six separate enemies as you descend across the land!

Challenge your friends to beat your score in this timed challenge scenario, or compete for the #1 position on the leaderboard!


New Map – Land Nomad

Land Nomad is a community favorite that gained an impressive following due to it’s interesting playstyle. Similar to Nomad, each player begins without a Town Center or Scout and must build from the resources of the land without the use of water for docks and fishing ships! It is available now both in Ranked Team Game pool and unranked matches!


Keep It!

Remember: if you sign in to Xbox Live during the event, you’ll get to keep all of the mods and profile icons you’ve achieved! Sign in, earn your rewards, and enjoy this Mongol civilization themed event!

    It is unfortunate that the devs did not see it necessary to explain the cool downs in the challenge. I am on my last goal with a cool down of 14 hours with only 10 hours left in the challenge. Disappointing. Fun game though. I should have stayed home from work so I could have played earlier and tomorrow so I could beat the last goal. Oh well, could've, would've, should've.

      I've also done this multiple times and it is still not unlocked. Have we got a fix for this anywhere/anyhow?

    Thanks for another fun event, they just keep getting better! The revamped E3 Mongol raiders scenario is a great addition, a fun fast carnage filled challenge!

      Only one challenge can be completed each day and only in the order of the list.

    • chelsire July 25, 2020

      Entre desafío y desafío tienes que esperar 12hs. (Si no me equivoco) Si cumples el desafío antes de que transcurra este lapso no desbloqueas nada

      @zenzzyzx vielen Dank dann schaue ich mal ....

    • zenzzyzx July 26, 2020

      I believe the civilizations that have access to the onager/catapult are Aztecs, Bulgarians, Celts, Cumans, Ethiopians, Koreans, Malians, Mongols, Saracens, Slavs, and Teutons.

  • avanglion-2 July 23, 2020

    I'd like to report a problem.
    Destroying a Siege Onager with a Mandugai while playing "Mongol Raiders" does not count towards the "Kill a Siege Onager using Mangudai" objective from the "Mongol Conquest" event.

    Reply
    • beararse16 July 24, 2020

      If I upgrade the Mangudai to the Elite Mangudai, does that still count if it kills the onager? Or does if have to be just the Mangudai with a "Siege Onager"?? Not really sure its that specific.

    • textbookmold80 July 23, 2020

      That's not a problem. The quest specifies that it must be completed in "Standard or multiplayer"; scenarios are neither.

  • mgoblin256 July 23, 2020

    I hope we get to keep the Yurts. Extremely fitting for the Mongol civ in general.

    I just scored over 28 000 on the scenario but it didn't unlock the profile icon you can get for exceeding 15 000. By the way, I did wait until the achievement was open/available. Others are reporting that they are not getting the achievement as well. Very frustrating.

      Same issue, I've completed the previous two tasks, waited over 24 hours, gotten 15-16k+ multiple times, signed out and back into xbox live, completed it again, still no reward nor can I move on to the next task.

      Same here, scored 29.000 and nothing ... I guess we can still expect more bugs from Microsoft after each 'patch' :)
