Aaaaagh! I pre-ordered this on Steam as soon as it came on... Got way too excited, should have waited... Great price, heat added

Couldn't you buy a disk version for about a fiver?

They're also useless if you want to play against anyone online - I have a disc from when it first came out which is fine, but about 5 years ago a friend of mine bought a copy so we could play against each other and he only got it to work once or twice as it turned out all the more recent copies have the same online key or something similarly ridiculous, essentially making it impossible to get connected.

One of my favorite RTS of all time

It's just an old game and there are no servers to play it on. You can still play through 3rd party software.

I used to dream of this making a comeback.. one of my favourite EVER games.. me and my mates used to spend nights/months playing this vs each other..

Ok, just ordered.. can I just check with everyone who has purchased - the game is out on the 8th May, I'm guessing that's when you receive your steam activation code?.... it doesn't seem to be included just yet with the confirmation of purchase email I got.

And thanks for posting this! Was gonna buy it on Steam, glad I waited

Why is this a good price? AoEIIHD is usually this price, and on sale it's as low as £3.50. Won't AoM follow the same pattern?

Ah right, my apologies.

I would like to play this game again but £15 is quite a hefty price tag considering I still have the disk based version laying around somewhere. If I remember correctly AoE 2 HD tends to drop to around £5 during sales. Perhaps it's worth waiting for those that are on the fence.

Ordered Heat Added! CANNOT WAIT!!!!

Yes - I've played AoEII and AoM on things like Hamachi and Tunngle over the years. But once this is available on Steam there will be a much more active multiplayer community (not to mention Steam Workshop support for new maps/mods). I've been playing AoEII HD online a fair bit recently and there are probably more people online now than there were when I first played it in 2000-2002.

I can't remember how much AoEII HD was when it first came out a year ago, but I seem to remember thinking it was quite expensive considering I'd had the game for almost 15 years so I held off. Then, at Christmas, it was on sale for £3.49, or £5.49 with the Forgotten expansion or £7.49 for that plus AoE III Complete (which I went for) and they've been on sale at those prices at least once since. So, yes, the price will probably drop significantly sooner or later but at this time this is the cheapest, unless you get it from someone on SteamTrades or something.

Not as straightforward, but it's cheaper to get the 4 pack at 20% off and split it up.

I use to play this all the time, was in one of the best clans in the game called hail clan but if I remember correctly they stopped running the servers so you can't play multiplayer

No, I wasn't just guessing at the problem - it was a known issue. Looking it up now it looks like some people were lucky enough to be given replacement keys (aom.heavengames.com/cgi…8,0,365), while since then others have been back to just having to give up (gamefaqs.com/pc/…ers?qid=41595). As you say though, there were/are probably workarounds, but it was a pretty big screw up on their part. There were plenty of servers as with my older key I could get on no problem, I just didn't want to play with strangers.
