"Based on the 4 seasons in a year, with a 25% chance of loading up a Winter map, Spring map, Summer map, or Autumn map."—Map description
Seasons is a bonus map in Age of Empires II.
The map is included with patch 1.0c, Gold Edition, and HD Edition, along with the rest of the custom maps of Ensemble Studios. The filenames for all of maps begin with "ES@" to help players find them during multiplayer.
Each map has a river separating each players, however, the state of river and the land shows differently on each seasons:
- Winter: The land is completely covered with snow and the river is mostly frozen, where docks can only be built on the parts that are large enough and not frozen. It is usually played as a Ghost Lake map.
- Spring: Snow is generally melted and the river is mostly thawed. Each of the land is connected by ice. It is usually played as a Highland map.
- Summer: The land is green and the river is completely covered with shallows. Demolition Ships can take advantage in this map.
- Autumn: Fallen leaves covers most of the land and each of the land is connected by shallows (similar to Spring). The herdables are Turkeys whereas the other three maps are Sheep.
