Greetings everyone.
The files on the disc are dated August 15th, 1997. It appears the beta also has the developer command line.

I would love to hear about your thoughts and learn more about this beta!

DO NOT POST LINKS DIRECTLY TO THIS BETA SINCE THIS IS AGAINST THE CODE OF CONDUCT. Doing so will result in a ban. You are free to discuss any discoveries or differences. Thank you.

Nocomonda,

What is the name of the Beta, does it have a version number, and is Mor Havoc in it?

Dawn of Man is an early well known Beta demo for Computer Gaming World magazine. Its "Wreck of the Hyksos" is a scenario in it with Mor Havoc as a unit belonging to the Libyan player:

This is significant because Mor Havoc is in the units list in the Editor but not in any official scenarios.

Dawn of Civilization was replaced by the Ascent of Egypt Learning Campaign in the final builds of the original Age of Empires, and is only present in select known alpha/beta builds, such as the one bundled with Computer Gaming World (CGW) Magazine.

The description in the Granary says:
"Demo Version of AoE exclusive to CGW (Computer Gaming World) Magazine, from Issue #160 CD-ROM, November 1997. Build is late Beta, and 5-scenario campaign is exclusive to CGW."

An even earlier version of AOE was the 1995 Dawn of Man game:
