It seems that some customers were mistakenly charged for their pre-orders for the game. On the other hand, the good news is that fortunately, Microsoft announced that all these users who were wrongly charged would be refunded.

Microsoft to refund users

The company posted all the necessary details on this refund due to an error regarding charging and info about a few gifts that some customers will receive due to the error. After refund, these users will also be able to renew their pre-orders from Microsoft.

Pre-orders have been refunded. There were a few customers who have been mistakenly charged ahead of schedule, and these customers have all received a refund.

The company also promised to send an email as soon as possible that will provide further details on this issue. It’s also important to note that pre-orders were canceled as part of the refund process and that’s why you have to place your pre-order again.

Refunded pre-orders will receive a free game

Microsoft wants to make things right with its customers, so the company has also decided to offer a free code for Rise of Nations: Extended Edition for Windows 10. Users should check their email for an email containing more details.
