Age of Empires

The Dawn of Man Expansion

Welcome to the official Age of Empires: The Dawn of Man Expansion website

The Dawn of Man Expansion will be a brand new addition to the Age of Empires franchise, created by the fans for the fans.  The project began its first steps back in 2006, and since has made huge strides in becoming the first complete expansion developed for Age of Empires outside of Ensemble Studios.

After a break in progress the project is now back in development, so check this website for the latest information.

Calling all artists, scenario designers and historians!

Can you create incredible 2D images?  Can you build 3D graphical models?  Are you a wiz at creating Age of Empires scenarios?  Do you have a good grasp of the history of the ancient world?

If you can answer yes to ANY of these questions then feel free to logon to the Tribulation Board, a dedicated forum to our team at Tribulation Designs.  We are always looking for productive input on current projects and applications for new members.  Remember that this expansion is being developed for all fans of Age of Empires, so we invite you to tell us what you want.
