AoE 2 HD is going out on Steam soon, with modernization updates and full steam integration (with mods, too). Looks like I'd be buying AoE 2 all over again.

How do you play multiplayer on 2 and/or 3? I have AOE 2: The Age of Kings, AOE 3, and AOE 3: The War Cheifs. As soon as I can find out how to set up a multiplayer game, I'd love to play with anyone of y'all who can play.

I wasn't so hot on the Steam re-release, considering I've got the Forgotten Empires mod, which does much of the same thing that the HD version does, and for free :P

You play multiplayer in AOE3 and TWC my clicking "multiplayer" and ESO. You log into ESO2, and you can play games with people... I think all over the world.

Both AOE2 and AOE3 can also be played in multiplayer using a program called GameRanger, which allows you to set up multiplayer games on supported games (AOE2/3 being two of them). Once you've set up the GameRanger and your account, just open a lobby; GameRanger'll take care of the rest.

Sounds good. I'll have to install my AOE games on this comp. I got a new one earlier this summer and I haven't put all my games on it yet.

If you get AOE2 on Steam, they've now included a new in-game multiplayer lobby.

That, too. And it does look better so I'm told. I think I'll wait for the bugs to get worked out... and for the price to drop.

Yeah, come Christmas sale, it will be like 5 bucks, haha. There's also a new expansion called "the Forgotten" that I'm waiting to drop as well.

OH YEAH, that's a good one. The AI is a might difficult to play against, but the new civs are well worth it.

(It was released as a mod for the original AOC, for free, if you have the time, initiative, and original game to check it out...)

Oh this game is 75% off on Steam currently, and will be for 13 more hours.
I was quite tempted to get it myself, but I think I am going to hold off for now...
at least till it goes 75% off again later this month then I'll think about it again. XD
Be part of the answer, not part of the problem.

The Forgotten is ripped pretty much straight from a free mod called "Forgotten Empires."


I still have the original AoE II and the free Forgotten mod, and refuse to pay for the steam version >_>

I might still buy AOE II HD and the Forgotten Empires ripoff - if the price comes down, just to see what "HD" looks like. (And because I'm curious what the multiplayer ladder is like on HD.)
