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”
