Get it while it lasts.

You will need to download the GFWL client for Windows.

Once done, find the AOE3 icon. Click it and grab it.

Can pay via CC or XBL Points.

FUUUUUUU

You have to register the account as being somewhere in the US. I tried using my local NZ xbl accounts (one of which had the credit I was going to use) and NZ isn't a supported region.

DAMNIT

I WANT THAT GAME.

Download the client. Run it. Find AOE3. Click it.

Get it.

I just did that last night and I am now the owner of it.


Perhaps setting up XBL from an actual Xbox and then grab the game then. :confused:

Yay got it. Can't download it now though (not enough GB, man). Wasn't in my list last night though.

What do they give you for installation?

ISO file? Or something else that is easy to backup for future re-installation?

You download it through the Games for Windows Live client. It works in a similar manner to steam it seems.

Just be aware to those who still want to get the game, read the following (I got it from official website.


AGE OF EMPIRES SALES INFORMATION:
Due to the overwhelming success of the Age of Empires III sale, we have temporarily run out of keys to unlock the game. You can still buy the game at this amazing price and you will get a key in the next week. When new keys are added to the system you will be auto-assigned a key, there is no need to call support or take any other action from your end. We will post information on the forums and on the website when the keys are available and the next time you click 'View Game Keys' for the game you should be assigned one.

And I don't have a key :(. Hopefully one won't be too far away.

I used a Loaded Card from NZpost and it worked.

Also, the files are stored in the installation directory (in the settings)

6 files. .Cab format.
