Update 66692
Update 66692 Forgotten Empires

Are you a fan of the Rajendra campaign in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition? If so, some changes and bug fixes were applied to the said campaign in Update 66692.

The Rajendra campaign in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition focuses on the conquests of Rajendra Chola I, considered by many as the most successful ruler of the Chola Dynasty. This five-scenario campaign received several changes in the latest patch.

In the first scenario called “The Successor,” the Chalukyan Army will no longer rebuild its military buildings. This is pretty significant considering the said army is the most formidable opponent you will face on the map. If you’re able to dwindle their numbers down by eliminating their military structures, victory will surely be yours. Another major change in this particular mission is that for a village to count as being raided, you now have to also destroy the Chalukyan tower in it.

In the third Rajendra scenario “Rising Star,” you can no longer build Bombard Towers in the said mission, making the task of defending your settlements harder than before. Furthermore, Sri Lanka will now ally with the Chalukyas if you happen to lose control of the castle on the island.

You can read the other changes below:

Rajendra I: The Successor
  • Manyakheta is now a bit weaker.
  • Updated the scouts' report to reflect that Vengi gives no economic aid, only military aid.
  • The Chalukyan Army’s units will not chase you for as long as before.
  • The Chalukyan Army now starts with a University.
  • The army camp has more guards (during the night) and is more difficult to enter.
Rajendra II: Deeds of the Father
  • Added a timer for the opening defense objective and ensured Mahinda’s men focus on attacking your camp, so that they do not get lost if you try to lure them.
  • It is now possible to be defeated in the mission.
  • Ruhuna no longer rebuilds any military buildings.
Rajendra III: Rising Star
  • The flare that appears when the Tungabhadra Castle quest begins no longer calls Vengi to attack in this direction.
  • Improved Srivijaya’s transport loading abilities (i.e. properly blocked an inaccessible spot they were trying to reach.)
  • You can no longer build any economic buildings during the opening fixed force mission.
Rajendra IV: Sacred Waters
  • Fixed an issue where the player could lose control of the Relic Cart and wind up unable to bring it to the monks.
Rajendra V: Slaying the Vritra
  • Added a failsafe that removes all nearby missiles right as a Castle changes hands, to minimize the risk of the player accidentally destroying the building they are meant to capture.
  • The Chola Navy now gradually gets upgrades based on your progress.

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition Update 66692 is available on PC.
