***Beta branch update***: 08/18/2017 - Cross-network play testing

Greetings,

Earlier today it was announced that Rise of Nations: Extended Edition will release as a cross-network play game that will allow players to play against each other on Xbox live, and Steam starting September 14th 2017.

Starting today we are adding Beta users with our Windows 10 UWP version of the game, we hope that you will join in, and help test this exciting new feature. Nothing should feel different other than you may see some Xbox live players popping in here and there.

We would love to hear all your feedback and insight on this great new feature, and are excited for the upcoming live release of cross-network play on September 14th. Thank you for all of your help and continued support.

~Rise of Nations Team~

Beta branch update: 07/19/2017

Greetings,

There is a new update on the beta branch that should address a few key issues identifed in patch 1.20. Extra participation in this version of the beta branch would be greatly appreciated as the more data we can gather the better. Please leave all feedback in the beta branch section of the forums.

Note: This is not the live branch. This is the beta branch

• Fixed some instances of players appearing as an open slot on lobby join
• Fixed some instances of players appearing with the name "Human" on lobby join
• Fixed an issue when retrying timed out P2P connections

Thank you again

How to access the Beta branch:

Your mainline branch will be 1.10. The beta branch will be V1_20_beta. To switch between branches, right-click on the game name from your Steam library and select Properties. Select the Betas tab. Use the drop down box to either opt out of all betas, or choose the V1_20_beta branch.

About This Game

Rise of Nations


Rise of Nations is a real-time strategy game that spans all history.
