To access co-op in Age Of Empires 3, players will need to go to the Historical Battles screen. Here they can select a mission and host it as a co-op game. Players will be able to add passwords to ensure only their friends get in, or can leave it public and let anyone join.

The new mode will take place in existing Historical Battles, which have been updated for co-op play, as explained in a Steam post. (Via PCGamesN) Missions will now have AI designed to face two opponents instead of one. Players who own DLC missions can host and play with friends who do not own that DLC content.

In other news, itch.io has said on Twitter that “NFTS are a scam” and that they will not be promoted through the site.

“Also fuck any company that says they support creators and also endorses NFTs in any way. They only care about their own profit and the opportunity for wealth above anyone else. Especially given the now easily available discourse concerning the problems of NFTs,” itch.io concluded.
