Reach for the Stars with the New AoE II: DE Event!

Hello Friends! This month is dedicated to the stars that have always watched and guided our civilizations on Earth. As the sun sets, the stars will take center stage with comets and the majestic Milky Way painting the evening sky.

From the rolling dunes of Arabia to the rolling waves on the coasts of Mesoamerica, the night will spread its magic through the lands of your Empires.

We hope you enjoy and thank you for playing! But this is just the start of a magical journey with much more on the dusk horizon, we are looking forward to telling you more!
