Age of Empires IV launches October 28th, available for Pre-order Now!

You’re invited to celebrate THE TEUTONS: a civilization well known for their toughness, tenacity, and their ever-stylish capes!

As with all of our monthly events, we’ve created a new set of challenges for you to complete over the course of the next two weeks, as well as exclusive profile icons, new visual mods, and even a new cheat code to spice up your time in the campaign. On top of all this, the team has built a new challenge scenario—the Barbarossa Brawl—to test your skills: a holdout where you’ll defend against increasingly more challenging waves of enemies over time. See how long you can last and make your mark on the leaderboard of your friends!


  • New Barbarossa Brawl challenge scenario!
  • Unlock three new, themed Profile Icons!
  • Unlock giant Pretzels for your Onagers!
  • Unlock a relaxing Teutonic Knight Statue for your Town Center!

DAY ~ 🎯 Sign into Xbox Live.

New Scenario!

The celebration continues with the Barbarossa Brawl: a new challenge scenario based on the original Barbarossa campaign. Defend your Town Center against impossible odds for as long as possible, then find new ways to increase your score and top your friends on the leaderboard!

Keep It All!

    Hi, I struggled with this challenge for about a week. I searched through the community for an easy fix. I even saw a few YouTube videos but none of them worked. Yesterday, I tried again and I was able to survive for 21 minutes. Here's a breakdown of what I did. 1) Build your 2nd TC to your west between the stone and the gold mines and assign villagers to mine both with priority being stone 2) Send your scout to the Cuman mercenaries 3) Build two layers of houses surrounding your original TC with 2 layers of Palisade wall around them 4) Train TKs from your castle and garrison them 5) Build a market to send gold to the Cumans also build a stable and train a few knits 6) Assign villagers to build docks and build fireships - works both in the North and the South 7) Do not forget to keep gathering resources 8) Build 6 Castles surrounding your Palisade wall 9) Train pikemen or skirmishers and garrison them inside 10) The secret is to keep gathering resources till the timer shows 15 min, repair your castle now and then and unload knights or TKs to destroy trebuchets 11) When armies of blue and purple overwhelm, unleash your garrisoned forces to keep them distracted 12) Keep training forces 13) Garrison villagers if they cant gather resources This worked for me. Do not give up!!

      I concur. I tried about 12 times now, with and without cumans, imperial age, galleys, everything. Nothing gets me more than 18.5 mins. Far, far too hard for an average player.

    • viridbirch77415 September 29, 2020
      rush purple with all u have at the start of the challenge. fight their monastery with vills if you need to, run with the relic, ignore everything else. Delete your own TC -> get PRETZELS
    • stronkestloins September 29, 2020
      I barely made it to 20 mins. I just stayed in the castle age and built teutonic knights, and prayed. I've been trying to capture that relic, and that is actually impossible. It seems like you need 300 apm just to have a chance.
    • zhuyezhiyi September 28, 2020
      I Try it and try it but there is no chance 15 minutes must be highest… 20 minutes is much strong for a normal AOE2DE Player
  • dengood September 24, 2020
