Invalid CD-Key/Can't connect to ESO




There are solutions for some copies of the game. This problem is caused by new copies of Age of Mythology - Gold Edition being shipped with the same CD-Key. Since a CD-Key can only be logged onto ESO once at a time, this causes these copies to never or almost never work online. This is a very common problem that many new users have been facing ever since Microsoft gave the distribution rights for Age of Mythology to other publishers. If you have one of these newer copies of the game and are experiencing this problem, your CD-Key will be as follows: BDKRJ-HFRHW-8W3YV-*****-*****

Luckily, our users have found that these sellers are able to give out new, unique, CD-Keys. Firstly you'll need to check the box of your recently purchased game to find the vendor. The following vendors are known to sell Age of Mythology - Gold Edition: Valusoft, Ubisoft, That's Hot and Xplosiv. Once you find your vendor, follow the directions under the corresponding header below:

Valusoft

You will need to email their support department using the form on this page asking for new CD-Keys for online play. You will probably have to provide certain information from your CD or box. For more information, see this thread.

Ubisoft

You will need to email their support department using the form on this page, asking for new CD-Keys for online play. You will probably have to provide certain information from your CD or box. For more information, see this thread.

Recently people have reported that Ubisoft were only given a certain amount of new CD-Keys from Microsoft and have now run out. At this point, there is nothing you can do except try to get a refund and find another copy of the game from a different distributer.

Xplosiv

You will need to email their support department (support@empire.co.uk) asking for a new CD-Key for online play. Including the following information in your email:

1) An image of the rear of the box showing the barcode.
2) An image of the receipt for the game. If no receipt is available you will need to send an image of the header from a Gas or Electricity bill showing your name and address.


That's Hot

There is no known solution for copies of the game sold by That's Hot. It says on the cover in the small print that the game is not compatible with online play. Try to get a refund and find another copy of the game from a different distributer.



If you cannot find Ubisoft, Valusoft, Xplosiv or That's Hot anywhere on the package, look harder! It has been reported that at times it is very well disguised and hard to find. If your copy of the game is published by someone not on the list above, please post a reply to this thread.

oh you can wait for what I can give
you know what I am so you know how I live
try to look proud but youíre not in the slightest
its happening now and itís always been like this.

So is there no way to play on ESO if you're not in the US? Isn't there anywhere online where you can pay Microsoft to buy a cd key? I bought some games online from Blizzard and got the key with my purchase, can't that be done with AOm?

Just letting you guys know it's not that hard to find an original copy of the game...

I found two on ebay today, and verified with the seller (and through pictures) that they are the original copies with working cd keys....

If anyone wants it ^

You just have to look.

Hello. I bought AoM when it first came out many years ago. Me and my friends have recently brought it back up in conversation and I have been really anxious to play it again. Unfortunately, I have the original box it came in, the two CDs and the gigantic manual that comes along with it. Nothing else. I believe that the actual CD case has been thrown away along with the Product Key. What do I do? I wouldn't mind buying a new one but do they even still sell this game? I heard that the new ones come with Product Key problems of their own anyway. Is there a way I can just get emailed a new one?

Usually a sticker inside the box or on the back of the manual.

Unique product keys are no longer required for any aspect of AoM now that ESO isn't accessible. Any old product key will work...

Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand.
I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me.
Take me out to the black, tell them I ain't comin' back.
Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.
There's no place I can be, since I found Serenity.
But you can't take the sky from me...

Could I get the product key from a computer that it is already installed on?

Thank you so very much! You don't know how excited I am to be able to play some AoM again!
