Unpack your trebuchets – Red Bull Wololo, the iconic global Age of Empires tournament, is back for 2022. Red Bull Wololo: Legacy will see players compete in 1v1 battles for the ages, with competitions unfolding across Age of Empires I: Definitive Edition (AOE I DE), Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition (AOE II DE), and Age of Empires IV (AOE IV).

Players and fans can look forward to the most beloved faces of the community on-site and an unparalleled AOE esports experience at the immersive LAN in historic Castle Heidelberg from October 21st-30th.

There are many routes to qualify for the Castle Heidelberg tournaments, spanning open qualifiers, community events, progression through official Microsoft and partner circuits, and direct invitations. Open Qualifiers for AOE II DE and AOE IV are open for registration, to determine the most talented conquerors and queens who will take on invited AOE legends in Castle Heidelberg.

The first chapter of Red Bull Wololo began in 2020, and viewership and participation has continued to increase as epic rivalries and storylines emerged throughout the years. The electrifying Red Bull Wololo V: Enthrone Final saw AOE icon Ørjan “TheViper” Larsen take home his first victory against two-time Red Bull Wololo Champion Kai “Liereyy” Kallinger. Breaking down the epic battle on broadcast, TheViper said “It got really messy but in the end I was able to pull it off. It was so intense and I couldn’t afford any mistakes. Wild Game!” Red Bull Wololo V: Enthrone came to a spectacular close in September 2021 with the first Castle Heidelberg LAN Final, which saw over 77,000 peak concurrent viewers. Each tournament is a fierce battle of wits as only the top players rise to the ultimate challenge and compete for the strongest civilisation.
