For the Age of Empires IV Technical Stress Test, we will not be enforcing a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). You may stream or video capture from the Technical Stress Test build, but please note the following:
- The NDA still applies to previous betas and previews. Please do not share media from these previous iterations of the game.
- The Technical Stress Test has a general watermark labeling it as pre-release software.
- The Technical Stress Test will contain only a portion of what Age of Empires IV will have to offer at release and more opportunities to showcase Age of Empires IV will be in the near future.
More information about the NDA can be found HERE.
To better assist with navigating the NDA, please see the below Guidelines. These are commonly asked questions about what is covered by the NDA.
- If you see someone violating their NDA, please report it to AOEEnforcement@microsoft.com. Include the URL and a screenshot of the violation if possible.
