Age of Empires 2

Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition, the revised and corrected version of the original classic, has received a very interesting new update with the update 58259, which adds campaigns and events in cooperative multiplayer mode.

This is new elements compared to the original, which allow you to face the game in cooperative multiplayer through new missions and situations. There is an online event currently running until February 14, 2022, which offers various challenges and allows you to reach interesting rewards, if you complete the objectives within the set time limits.

These are, in particular, five objectives to be achieved, aiming for one a day, not necessarily on consecutive days, provided that they are completed by February 14th. Rewards vary from day to day and also include cheat codes to change certain game parameters, profile icons, exclusive decorations and more.

In addition, the update introduces the campaigns of Alaric and Saladin in cooperative multiplayer mode, that is a total of 6 campaigns and 5 historical battles that you can face in this game mode within Age of Empires 2 : Definitive Edition. In addition to the new additions in terms of content, the update also takes care of correcting and improving various technical aspects of the game.

To get to know it better, we refer you to the review of Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition, remembering that the new Age of Empires 4 is obviously available since last October.

Major Age of Empires 2: DE update brings new co-op event and campaigns

More than two years after launch, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition keeps getting new goodies. The remastered strategy game has just got another major update, which brings a new co-op event, two new co-op campaigns, rewards, bug fixes, and more.

Age of Empires II: DE’s Update 58259 – catchy, isn’t it? – has kicked off a new co-op event that runs from, well, right now to February 14. This is offering a new bunch of challenges that in turn yield some decent in-game rewards, which you can earn by beating the set tasks within a certain time limit. In the style of similar events the devs have run before, this one gets you to complete a set of challenges in order, with five in total. You won’t need to hit them all on consecutive days, but you can only complete up to a maximum of one per day, so you’ll need to play on at least five different days while the event’s live to nab them all.

Rewards vary by day, but include things like cheat codes that let you up your population cap or share resource around your team. There are also profile icons and a Town Centre decoration up for grabs. If you sign into Xbox Live at any time while the event’s in swing you’ll get to keep all of the mods and profile icons you unlock forever, so it’s well worth doing if you intend to keep them.

Elsewhere, the update brings the Alaric and Saladin co-op campaigns to the live game, which means six full campaigns and five historical battles to tuck into. You can catch the full list of these in the devs’ patch notes.

The update additionally ushers in the usual round of gameplay balance changes and bug fixes – which are lengthy, so also available to check out directly in the patch notes – as well as some cool new features for lobbies and matchmaking. Ranked Deathmatch has now come to custom lobbies, for example, and there’s a new ‘balance teams’ button that’ll help you – yep, you guessed it – balance your teams in this mode.

The latest update for #AgeofEmpiresIIDefinitiveEdition is now available! This patch features map balancing, gameplay fixes, Custom Lobby Ranked Deathmatch, and the newest Co-Op Event!

We know you’re interested in this info, so we’ll be sure to follow up once we’re ready to reveal just a few of the things coming to Age II:DE in 2022!” Lovely stuff.
