Ladies and gentlemen, we have some sad news for you today. With the Xbox PC Marketplace closing, the free-to-play strategy game Age of Empires Online has to suffer a major setback. Players will no longer be able to purchase any content come August 22nd and also lose all the Microsoft Points they have previously bought with real-life money. On the one hand this means that everything already in your possession can be re-downloaded whenever you like. On the other hand, new players will not be able to join the fun after this Thursday.  To confirm this assumption, we took a look at the forums and found this:

Sadly correct, no new players will be able to join the game after the marketplace closes. […] Existing players should be relatively unaffected, with the exception of the ability to purchase Empire Points.

Naturally, this has caused quite a ruckus within the community. Does this mean that the online game is going to be closed? No, but with a reclining player base, things don’t look good for Age of Empires Online. Guess we'll just have to wait and see if the free-to-play title manages to stay alive.
