    I wish we (pre-orderers) can get closed beta invitations. I was AoE:DE beta tester on Microsoft Store, and I just saw beta threads (because I was so busy at work) and I think I am late to the party which makes me sad.

    Are we getting any new video or game info or a view of the new tech trees in Games Com 2019 or is this pretty much all the info we get from Games Com about AOE2:DE?

    I have Aoe DE from Microsoft store, but now the icon appears gray and I got a message in the game which says I need to update for free in Microsoft store for new cross play and future updates. I looked in Microsoft store but I didn't find the way to update the game there. I tried with downloads and update in store but Aoe DE didn't get a new update. Could you help me with this? I will appreciate it.
