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).

Yurts appear in the following campaign scenarios.

Genghis Khan Edit

Attila the Hun Edit

El Cid Edit

  • Reconquista: The Black Guard forces have several Yurts in their settlements.

Battles of the Conquerors Edit

Battles of the Forgotten Edit

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.
