The Yurt is an unconstructable building in Age of Empires II. Like Houses, Yurts provide five population. They cannot be built in normal gameplay, however, they are available in the Scenario Editor and can be found in some campaigns.

Campaign Appearances Edit

Yurts are clearly intended to create a nomadic atmosphere, thus their main appearances are in camps of Central Asian peoples (Mongols, Turks, Huns) in certain campaigns, such as Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun.

Another notable appearance of Yurts is in the Bukhara scenario, one of the Battles of the Forgotten. They belong to the Hephthalites (White Huns), which is justified, as the Hephthalite Empire was composed of both nomadic and urban settled communities.

Appearance outside Campaigns Edit

The Forgotten introduces the Steppe, similar to Nomad, an open space map without water, where players begin without a Town Center and scout and three extra Villagers. They also begin the game with three Yurts.

Trivia Edit

  • In the "Tales of Middle-Earth" AoE2 mod, the first Age model for the Town Hall is identical to the large Yurt model.
