Empires Apart goes Free-to-Play!

There are some big news for all Empires Apart players: today Empires Apart goes Free-to-Play!

We are changing the format to make the game accessible for free to everyone. Anyone can go to Steam, download the game and play it at absolutely no cost. You will have access to all game modes and you'll be able to play with the Byzantines civilization.

What does it mean for all those who had bought the game? You are not going to lose anything, and you're getting more than the value of your money back. You will be considered a Founder and you'll get immediate access to all the original civilizations plus access to exclusive content in the future.

The other civilizations are being repackaged as DLCs. You will be able to play against them with the F2P version and even to try them briefly with the new test scenarios, but you will need to buy the DLCs if you intend to play as the Mongols, the Chinese, the Arabs, the French, the Aztecs and the Koreans!

If you would like to have more information on how the Free-to-Play system works please read the FAQ we've published.

What, wait a seconds, did you say Koreans? Yes, there is a new playable civilization!

Now you will be able to buy the Korean Civilization Pack and lead the brand new faction in battle.

The Koreans are a ranged-focused civilization which can make use of the powerful Hwacha for devastating firepower. Their Nobles provide a unique mechanic, boosting the area around them and improving your economic development.

We have completely revamped the in-game menus, and brought in a massive number of improvements: new AI, a new map, and countless gameplay and UI improvements! We are also resetting the Ranking, so everyone gets a fair chance to start this new Ranked season on equal terms.

Last but not least, don’t forget to tune in for today’s developer stream live on Twitch at 8.30 pm BST!

This is the start of a new exciting path for Empires Apart. We can’t wait to see you all in game!

Patch 1.4.1 is LIVE - Stability improvements

Hello folks,
we just put out a patch that should further improve the stability of the game. This should mean less FATAL ERRORs. We ran games lasting several hours without crashes. Please let us know if you're still experiencing issues.

We're aware of a potential crash on Islands when playing vs the AI which we will fix with another patch very soon. In the meantime we hope to have improved the overall stability for everybody.

“Empires Apart is a very capable game […] It does feel a bit like Age of Empires, but its focus on multiplayer and lack of content may put a lot of people off. If you liked the gameplay provided by Age of Empires, you should definitely take a look at Empires Apart”
8.0/10 – https://www.gamewatcher.com/reviews/empires-apart-review/13001

“Empires Apart is both a good spiritual successor to Microsoft’s classic and a good game in its own right, delivering a very capable experience that successfully brings most of Age of Empires mechanics into the modern age. If you liked Ensemble’s iconic series then you should definitely take a look at this game”
4/5 – https://www.strategygamer.com/reviews/empires-apart/

“An extremely entertaining product if you want to play it online, characterized by well designed factions”
