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.

Some technology upgrades apply to Yurts, as they serve the same function as Houses.

Campaign appearances[edit | edit source]

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 | edit source]

Attila the Hun[edit | edit source]

El Cid[edit | edit source]

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

Battles of the Conquerors[edit | edit source]

Battles of the Forgotten[edit | edit source]

Appearance outside campaigns[edit | edit source]

The Forgotten introduces the Steppe, a map similar to Nomad but 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 | edit source]

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