Hello to our Age friends and family from around the world! Today, we are thrilled to not only announce the arrival of Age of Empires: Definitive Edition on Steam as well as Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta) and Ultimate, but the official release date of Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, which will launch on Microsoft Store, Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta) and Ultimate, and Steam on November 14, 2019!

For all you Age II players eagerly looking forward to the arrival of the Definitive Edition, starting today you can pre-order the game on the Microsoft Store and Steam! You’ll be able to enjoy all the features—including cross play with your friends, four brand-new civilizations, three new campaigns, and a transport ship full of game improvements —right on day one, so be sure to unlock your copy today:

Our goal is to make the best possible version of Age II that we can, working right alongside our community. So while Age II DE’s release is only a few months away, you can sign up to participate in the Age II DE beta right now – visit ageofempires.com/insiders to join the Age Insider program – and help us tune and refine Age II even further. You’ll also have a chance to participate in future beta opportunities, so sign up!

But that’s not all the Age news today! We’re happy to announce the arrival of Age of Empires: Definitive Edition on Steam and Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta), now featuring cross-network play between the Windows 10 and Steam platforms. We believe that if you’re a fan of Age of Empires, you’re part of our family, and that means we want you all playing together, no matter where you choose to game from.

You can pick up Age of Empires: Definitive Edition on Steam or the Microsoft Store for $19.99 USD. If you’re a subscriber to Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta), you’ll love to hear that Age DE has arrived for members — a strong addition for those of you looking to add a little “stone age through medieval times” strategy to your life:

To take advantage of cross play, existing owners of Age of Empires: Definitive Edition from the Microsoft Store will need to download a brand-new client. This is a free download for anyone with Definitive Edition in their Microsoft Store library. And don’t worry: all your existing save games, campaign progress, and achievements are preserved. In fact, any achievements you’ve earned in the earlier Definitive Edition will automatically unlock in the new client; they’ll even count towards your Gamerscore, so double points! Woo!
