Is Age of Empires 2 free?

No, Age of Empires 2 has never been free BUT nobody can deny that the two expansions (The Conquerors, Age of Kings) made Age of Empires 2 famous through illegal torrent distribution and CD-ROMs.  Then you have some individuals sharing their Age of Empires 2 CD discs with neighbors and family.

However if you own a copy of Age of Empires 2 through steam or CD there is a free community patch on that overloads your game with more civilizations from various DLCs. It’s Multiplayer supported.

All things considered  Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition is the most played game in the entire series, you can buy it from Steam or Microsoft Store. To be honest, Steam is the best right now since you can access/mod your game installation folder and a neat feature to verify game files integrity in case something goes wrong with your game steam will only download the missing files unlike MS store.

i am known as "GregStein" and a huge fan of Age of Empires 2. My current Voobly Rate is 18++; Steam ELO 22++. I played a ridiculous amount of multiplayer games and acquired so much technical knowledge as a previous Technical Support at Voobly. I am also in the Masters' tier in Starcraft 2.
