Red Bull Wololo, the iconic global 1v1 Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition tournament, is back for a groundbreaking final fifth iteration, with a medieval theme and an awe-inspiring LAN Final at Castle Heidelberg in Germany. Since the beginning of August, registrations have been open for the qualification stage taking place on August 14th and 15th, offering aspiring conquerors around the world the opportunity to take on the biggest stars in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, including the reigning Red Bull Wololo Champion, Liereyy. Each tournament is a fierce battle of wits as only the top players rise to the ultimate challenge and compete for the most vigorous civilisation.
A spectacle for the ages, Red Bull Wololo V is set to be the most prominent iteration yet, befitting the final chapter of the series. The quest to Castle Heidelberg has already begun, and players can register to the Red Bull Wololo V qualification stage, where hundreds of players will battle for two spots in the final. The group stage will take place from September 13th to 17th, determining the final twelve who will throw down the gauntlet at the Red Bull Wololo V Final from September 18th to 19th. A spectacular final chapter, the gothic Castle Heidelberg in Germany will be transformed, bringing players back in time with breathtaking medieval cosplay and more! The final will be narrated by leading broadcast talents and streamed on YouTube and Twitch, with streams in English, German, Spanish and many more languages.
Red Bull Wololo V fortifies the success of previous events in the series. The first Red Bull Wololo began in 2020, and viewership and participation have continued to increase as the storyline evolved. Red Bull Wololo IV came to an exciting five-day conclusion in June 2021 and saw 40,000 peak concurrent viewers and over 1,000 Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition players registered for the Red Bull Wololo IV qualification stage. The world's highest-ranked Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition stars from around the world are set to return for the final chapter, including Red Bull Wololo IV winner Kai 'Liereyy' Kallinger.
Red Bull Wololo plays out on Empire Wars, a unique game mode for Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, seeing two players face off in an honourable duel like the knights of old. Each game starts in the Feudal Age, skipping Dark Age to jump into the action as fast as possible. As part of the series, each Red Bull Wololo has introduced a new story arc for players to compete in. Red Bull Wololo I and II had players compete to control a castle and library in Western civilisation. Red Bull Wololo III represented Asian civilisation, and in Red Bull Wololo IV, players took on the role of battle-hardened Viking warriors in a Nordic-themed event.
Red Bull Wololo V has teamed up with industry leaders to produce an unforgettable final chapter in the unique event series. AGON by AOC, the global leader in gaming monitors, returns as the Official Monitor Partner for the event, bringing exceptional visual clarity and ultra-high refresh rates to competitors.
