Topic Subject:AoE DE update 8 coming soon

It's been little over a year now since Definitive Edition was released. We have gotten some very meager updates afterwards, but now it seems more features are finally coming our way:

"Age of Empires: Definitive Edition Update 8 is currently in the works! It will be released soon, and will include some of the community's most-requested features, including automatic farm reseeding, mixed unit queues, dead unit decay, and more!"


No word on the game/certain features being actually properly finished with this update however, so don't get your hopes up. Still it is a most welcome suprise!

You may have noticed some additional advertisement here on AoEH and HG, sometimes up to the point where it's downright interfering with viewing the website normally. If this is the case for you, you might want to consider using an adblocker (especially the case on mobile devices). HG needs ads to keep running however, we are working on getting this sorted out as soon as possible, thank you for your patience.

Better late than never, but still a lot of missing features before we can call this a definitive edition. At least it's a step in the right direction, I guess...

Going to give a try to AoE DE again once the update is out.

Though the update is welcome and much needed, it might be a little too late to get the game back on its feet.

This is an update I expected one month after release, not a year. The update by itself doesn't add anything substantial enough to keep players playing the game. Some might come back, sure, but more updates are needed to keep the players there. There are so many things this game needs to make it worth getting into again. Right now, I'm more interested in going back to RoR than playing DE.

I heard more cries for gates and garrisoning units than reseeding farms at the granary. This change isn't needed and shouldn't be a priority, where's an elo system, where's the much-needed improvements to the lobby, recording games, spectator features, where are all the features from AoE & RoR that are still absent from DE?

Maybe it's only a fool who'll perilously journey out to what might not be there. But if you want to solve problems, you don't just solve the ones that are there, you find more and make more and go after the impossible ones.
The neanderthals never ventured into the unknown and they went extinct, so who are the fools?

Good! I hope someone will keep working in future Aoe DE updates. Ill try the game again once the update is out.

Need an Elo system asap!

Paint me shocked. I thought the game was dead. Although I am glad they are still working at it I am a bit worried they may be prioritizing ''Age of Kingizationing" (reseeding farms? ehhh...c'mon! I did not ask for it!) instead of more important topics (parthfinding?).

When does the exclusive end?

The best stuff I made for Age of Empires:

 Coke vs. Pepsi Rated 4.4 ★ ★ ★ ★ ⅖ (Multi player scenario)

The new update does at least make pathfinding and unit movement and attacking logic a lot better. As for the automatic farm seeding it has a double edge to it. Managing your wood is important and if your villagers automatically seeds farms you can end up losing your wood in critical moments when you are building important buildings or units. On the other side, it allows for a focus on other aspects when your wood is high.
