How to Play "Age of Empires" Over Garena

by Antonin Korenek ; Updated September 22, 2017

Garena is a online video game hosting client that connects gamers without lag interruption. One of the many games Garena is host of is the real time strategy game "Age of Empires," which calls for players to create a giant empire out of a small tribe. Through Garena, the players will confront each other one on one to either expand their own tribe or block the opponent from adding to his own. The software for "Empires" must be installed on your computer for it to work with Garena.

Load the Garena client.

Select "Settings" in the upper right hand section of the screen.

Click "Game Settings."

Click "Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome" or "Age of Empires II: The Conquerors," whichever one is installed on your computer.

Click "Browse" under "Executable Settings."

Locate the .exe file that loads the game. Typically this will be in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires.

Find a room that has an open slot for an "Age of Empires" game or click "Host Game." The game will boot up automatically.
