Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition Hotfix

Die Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition – Entwickler haben einen Hotfix für das letzte Update veröffentlicht, welches einige schwerwiegende Fehler behebt. Darunter zählen auch zwei Exploits. Der Erste ermöglichte es Spielern mit den Litauen den Reliquienbonus in das Unendliche zu stapeln. Beim zweiten Exploit konnten hingegen feindliche Mauern entfernt werden, wenn die Bauflächen von Türmen, Donjons oder Toren verwendet wurden.

Außerdem behob man ein Synchronisationsfehler, der auftrat, sobald Bauflächen auf feindliche Einheiten/Gebäude im Nebel des Krieges platziert wurden.

Alle Änderungen stehen auch im Changelog.

◆ UPDATE 44834 ◆

Today’s (January 28) hotfix introduces a handful of solutions for some of the gameplay issues that cropped up with the January update, while work continues on other bugs you’ve reported—including specific crashes that some users are experiencing. Here’s the list of changes:

  • Fixed an exploit which would result in the Lithuanian Relic bonus stacking beyond the +4 cap, failing to decrement if the Relics were ejected from the Monastery, and stacking to infinity (and beyond).
  • Fixed an exploit which allowed users to delete enemy walls using TowerDonjon, and Gate foundations.
  • Fixed an out of sync error triggered by placing building foundations over enemy units or buildings hidden by the fog of war.
  • Please let us know if you continue to be awarded Lords of the West achievements without completing the listed requirements, as we have taken steps to resolve this. If you continue to experience it, please visit our forum and describe what you were doing when the achievements were rewarded, and whether or not you were rewarded other achievements or event challenge unlocks at the same time.

If you continue to experience any crashes, performance issues, or technical hiccups in the game, please take the time to reach out to the support team so they can assist you.


Crashes are the primary focus of our ongoing investigation, as well as performance issues noted by a subset of players. For those experiencing them, the most important thing you can do is contact our support team: both for assistance and to provide details that will help our team understand the problem.
