World’s Edge and Capture Age Partnership

We are proud to officially announce the partnership between World’s Edge and Capture Age. 

Capture Age is a ground-breaking spectating tool that completely changed how you can watch, enjoy and analyse Age of Empires: II. Today we can confirm that Capture Age will be coming to Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition.

Over the last three years, the Capture Age team has been developing a new way to watch Age of Empires. As fans of the Age of Empires franchise, their knowledge and understanding of the game has forged a tool designed to display real-time information that engages viewers without detracting from gameplay.

The Capture Age tool has been utilized during tournaments such as Hidden Cup 2 and the Escape Champions League to deliver a new and unique spectating experience that changed the way we watch and understand Age of Empires.

Sadly, the tool was incompatible with Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition upon release. Now with the partnership between World’s Edge and the Capture Age team, the tool is being redesigned from the ground up to complement and expand the viewer experience.

Recently, the Capture Age team were responsible for the amazing overlay used during the Red Bull Wololo and Hidden Cup 3. The overlay tracked multiple players’ resources, population and completed research in real-time, without having to swap between views or access menu systems.

As development progresses, Capture Age will be a stand alone tool providing a huge list of extra features to get excited for!

In-Depth Real-Time Statistics


Enhanced Minimap with High Contrast Colors


World Overlay with Monk Conversion Time Indicators


Per Unit Statistics and Individual Unit Kills


Tournament Integration with Direct Scoreboard Integration


Event Panel with Tribute Amounts, Market Usages, Notable Events


Capture Age will bring a whole new viewing experience to Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition and we are proud to be a part of it.
