The Celts Invade Age of Empires Online

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Things have been a little quiet on the Age of Empires Online (PC) front for a little while. The last DLC was released in January. Despite a trailer advertising the upcoming Celt civilization, nothing ever appeared; that is until now. The "Premium Celt Civilization" has been released and brings with it ten new achievements worth a total of 125G. The DLC costs $4.99 / £3.25 and can be downloaded from here. Of course, this new DLC is included in the Season Pass, so players who bought this pass will be able to download the new content for free.

Take charge with the Celtic infantry! The northern tribes are on the attack with all-new quests in the snowy regions of Celtica and beyond. Spirited Celtic warriors paint themselves with powers before battle and arm themselves with metalworking and crafting skills. Charge into battle with the fleet-footed Woad Raiders and the high-health Champions in more than 60 unique quests, including multi-stage missions. Then revitalize your siegeless warriors using healing units: the fierce-fighting Druids and the buff-casting Augurs. Unlock Rare and Epic gear, Advisors, and Ranked PvP; increase your Capital City warehouse storage; and add more Workshops. Get the Premium Celtic Civilization Pack today!
As well as the new DLC, the "Skirmish Booster Pack" that was released back in January has come to the end of its 'free' period. The DLC now costs $4.99 / £3.25 and must now be downloaded from here. Weirdly enough, there has also been new achievements added for this DLC pack where none existed before. There are four new achievements worth a total of 45G.

In the final DLC addition, there is a new bundle pack available. Players can buy the "Premium Celt Civilization" and previously released "Defense of Crete Booster Pack" in one cheaper package. The "Celtic Defense" package costs $9.99 / £6.75 and can be downloaded from here.

Late adopters of this game will be glad to know that they have a choice as to where they can source the game. Previously exclusive to Microsoft's Games for Windows portal, the game has now been made available on Steam. To celebrate the release of the game on this platform, Steam is having a sale on select DLC. Here is the full list:

• "Pro Persion Civilization" - $9.99 / £6.49 $4.99 / £3.25
