Age of Empires IV “String not found” : Is there any fix yet?

Age of Empires IV just came out on PC and Xbox Cloud Gaming. There have been many active players since it’s launch. Players from all parts of the world have assembled to experience the graphics and real time strategy gameplay that AOE IV has to offer. The game has a lot of content to offer, ranging from single player skirmishes and campaigns to online multiplayer battles.

Despite the quality that the game has to offer, it has only been a day since it’s release. There have also been reports of several minor bugs within the game, which either inhibit the players from linking their accounts to script errors. It was something expected, considering the duration it has been out for and the massive game size.
