Forgotten Empires

Forgotten Empires is a modding project for Age of Empires II that eventually turned into an official part of the series as Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten. Since its release in late 2012, the mod version received over 1 million official downloads.

Download Mod version: Install

Note: we no longer update the mod version, for full, continued support, please check out the Steam version of the game.


Age of Empires II: The Forgotten originally started as a modding project back in 2011, called Age of Empires II: Forgotten Empires. The project got gradually out of hand to the point where we felt confident on showing our mod to Microsoft, hoping there might be room to breathe new life into the decade old classic that Age of Empires II is.

Little did we know they were already working on their own revival of the series with a HD reboot of the game. After this proved to be successful we were offered the chance to turn our modding project into an official part of the series. An offer we couldn’t possibly refuse. For a full story on how the project came to life, please check out “The Story so far…”

      Yes, it possible, but I suggest you to use the official HD. It fixs many bugs of game data 🙂

      • Gabriel Picon

    Hey Guys!! I need your help. I think many of us also asked this but please, help me! I bought Age of Empires II HD Edition from Steam, very nice work, well made, perfect. I love it. But there is a problem: when I was young I played aoe2 on my osx panther emac and I usually played online trought GameRanger. Now I bought a windows pc just for this game (really! Despite I was very angry because I love macs and my osx aoe2 gold edition) online on Steam, works well. But many people are playing aoe on gameranger too! I bought it now but it Can’t be played online! It’s the SAME game but looks like it is a new one. So what I’m asking for is: Please, please, make a big, big update and make aoe2 free from Steam online rules. Make Age of Empires II free ( ,Again 🙂 🙂 )!! Hope english is good. Regards from Italy 😉

        It’s not properly true… I bought Age of Empires 3 from steam and it works fine on gameranger too! I read somewhere age of empires 2 hd edition doesn’t have more the lan multiplayer mode so this is the problem..

          1. it does has LAN however HD version requires that. you need have internet connection to start game, after that game will be in LAN

          2.steam version of aoe3 is same as non steam aoe3. aoe2 hd isn’t same game as original aoe2 so they aren’t compatible with each other without compatibility patch and with patch you lose hd version’s content while playing with original game’s players.

          3. Gameranger is bad for online play. don’t use it. all players don’t even use userpatch there

            many players play on gameranger too
