Patch 2.3 Now Live!

Patch 2.3
Just a minor update only 1 day after Patch 2.2 went out. Updating the version was necessary to prevent cross build desyncs due to the war salamander pathfinding fix.

Bug Fixes
Amphibious units can now traverse terrains properly once again.
The game will no longer spontaneously pause due to breakpoints existing in some AI scripts.
Desync tracking system will now generate logs when you play scenarios.
You cannot enable the desync tracking system in quickmatch (settings are ignored).

We're still looking into some data fixes that went into Patch 2.0 Hotfix #3 that got lost when Patch 2.1 was introduced. For example, the AI won't cross Yellow River.

We are also aware there is a refresh issue in the lobby browser. This isn't something that was changed, so we believe there is a problem on the Valve side, but we are investigating this. Some people have posted information that if you change the dropdown from ping to something else and back again, it'll recover quicker.

Flushing $30 would be more productive then spending money on this terrible remake of a great game. Super laggy and absolutely no support for bug fixes. Examples of horrendous code: One game started with a teammate that had a pond in place of where his town center should have been and therefore he started the game defeated! Another time I was playing 1 vs 1 against the AI and after the game I saw that my opponent was only given 1 town center compared to my 3! Several other times the AI has been known to do nothing after 2-3 minutes into the game as if they forget how to gain resources and advance ages. I also have a problem where my mouse cursor thinks it is on my desktop when hovering over portions of a map which makes the game unplayable. I can fix that error by using Alt-Enter twice to go to window-mode and back again. However, if I repeat this process again (due to the error recurring), the entire game crashes... The sad part is many people would play this game if any effort was made to correct these errors.

This game is an absolute gem in the RTS genre. Single player campaigns are fun even if they have already been played a hundred times. The classic AOM "Fall of the trident" campaign is arguably the best in the series.

Like how CS:GO is for online FPS, this one is for online RTS. I highly recommend this to fans of AOE series.

One of the BEST AOE series titles ever. Command your god-like powers to rule against your enemies and crush them. All game modes and map editor work well and are easy to use.

A great game just like the original. No amazing graphic updates here but it runs excellent on modern systems. I have just as much fun playing it now as I did when it first came out.

The "Purchase DLC to unlock this!" stuff bugs the hell out of me, and not much was changed from the original game. Needs adjustable FOV, though multiplayer worked fine for the hour or two I played with a friend, no problems there.

To be perfectly honest it feels like a lackluster cashgrab instead of a proper remake, plus it's more expensive now than it was when I bought it as a kid around 2005. Ridiculous.

One of my favourite games from my childhood. A friend got me into it , loved the original.As you expect i got excited when this came out on steam, too bad this remaster is full of bugs and has ♥♥♥♥♥♥ performance. In single player games it kinda stutters alot even if i have 300 fps. And online its even worse its VERY laggy impossible to play because of blatant servers. If u want to play this game get the original version and go on Voobly or Game Ranger. This Extended Edition is a joke don't waste your money on it.The majority of positive apvotes are probably from people who only play campaing.

They've done a great job updating the textures. Love the Chinese expansion too.

However, increasingly more often, like many other people, I am having problems with launching the game. Great game but I wouldn't recommend it until they finally address the problem.

I remember growing up with this game, playing it every ♥♥♥♥ing time I got home from kindergarten and preschool.

Thanks for destroying my childhood with the DLC and the needless updates, that try to fix what is broken. And f you, Microsoft.

I was able to play this game once and after that it has crashed every time I've tried clicking play on the launcher. I quite liked the gameplay when I was able to play. Some other people seem to have had similar issues. Can't really recommend based on my experience.
