Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition Beta Launches Next Month

An Age of Empires 3 Definitive Edition beta has been revealed, giving insider subscribers an opportunity to try the game out in February.

In a now-removed forum post, the Xbox Game Studio posted some details around the beta, saying that if players want a chance to participate they’ll have to be subscribed to the AoE Insider Program. The beta will have very limited spots as the team wants to run trails with a small number of players first, with March opening up to a larger pool. Multiplayer features will be tested, along with a small portion of the main campaign. No exact date was given, though this forum post may have been published publicly by accident as it has now since been removed. We expect to hear official details next month on the Beta, though PCgamer was able to grab the minimum required PC specs for the Beta that’ll be available on both Steam and the Microsoft store.

  • Windows 10 64-bit
