Age of Empires Online has gone free-to-play, Gas Powered Games has announced. Previously only free-to-try, all content is now available through in-game purchased or microtransactions. “We probably turned off a lot of players who would’ve kept playing had they been given the option to earn a Premium Civilization,” systems design lead Eric Williamsontold PC Gamer.

That’s not all though: current players will be given 500 Empire Points and those who create a new account will be handed 100 points.
