AoMMultilingual Support

For the last 3 years we have been supporting multiple languages on AgeCommunity.com. After analyzing our statistics over the last few months, we found that our alternate language pages have not been receiving any significant traffic.

As a result, we have decided to remove the links to those pages. Direct links will still work, however we will not be updating them. If you have any issues with our removal of multilingual support, please send an email to webmaster@ensemblestudios.com.

AoM20 Million

In 1997 a small group of people came together in Texas to form Ensemble Studios, and make a new kind of RTS game. The first Age of Empires surprised the critics, developed a major fan base, and went on to sell over a million copies. With each release of Age of Empires and Age of Mythology our success has grown along with our fans and community.

Today we celebrate selling 20 Million copies of the Age of Empires franchise and we want to thank you our fans for making that possible. We hope to keep entertaining you and playing games with you for many years to come.

AoMBringing home the Gold

Just when it seems like it is Michael Phelps can't get any more golden, the New York Times runs this awesome article, and a closer look page 2 reveals this gem.

"When Phelps is not sleeping, he plays the computer game "Age of Empires" with his suitemates or watches the documentary "Planet Earth." Anything to keep his mind off swimming until he returns to the pool for the preliminaries, where he follows the same prerace routine."

Here at Ensemble we are happy that our games help entertain Phelps and his friends. Keep on taking names Phelps!
