We mentioned this in yesterday's news roundup , but it's worth another mention. Age of Empires Online is now freely available to download today and tomorrow. You can download the game now from Games For Windows Marketplace . Once it's installed, you'll be able to try out the game for free for as long as the beta lasts.
