The developers deployed Update 13.10442 for Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition recently. This patch brought improvements and balancing adjustments.

One of the most notable things added in Update 13.10442 is the new option where you can set the transparent effect on the Age-Up window to improve map visibility. This feature was based on the mod made by Aizamk, which can be found in the UI Options in the settings menu.

The latest update for Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition also implemented some balancing changes. For one, units that have Deflect Aura will no longer protect artillery units. Furthermore, the native warrior Boyar from the Phanar Royal House now inflicts more damage to artillery.

There are other changes done as well, and here are the highlights:
