This is the biggest gift they have given us.
IT’S HAPPENING! REDCON-3!! No Malta flag icon
I like the name and promo art. Super cool.
That’s a lot of content for asked price:
The Knights of the Mediterranean brings a wealth of new content to Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition, including the addition of the Italy and Malta Civilizations, the brand new casual friendly Tycoon Game Mode, and the first ever set of Historical Maps, which bring endless replayability with a historical twist.
## 2 New Civilizations
Guard the Mediterranean against incursions with unique fortifications, don shining armor to fend off attacks, and shell opponents from afar with Fixed Guns. Fire Throwers and greatswords win battles, but the superior logistics of your Commandery win wars. Luckily, you can have both! Fighting at sea with Order Galleys may wet the gunpowder, but your Arbalesters won’t mind. You can always restock at a Gunpowder Depot, or blow it up when an enemy army marches past!
Unite wealthy merchant republics, duchies, and Papal states while new Settlers flock to your booming empire with every technological breakthrough, and use Architects to construct buildings for free! Invest at the Lombard to optimize your economy and turn a quick profit, or construct a towering Basilica and send Papal soldiers to strengthen and complement your army. Use shielded Pavisiers to lure opponents into an ambush of Bersaglieri, or let Elmetti lower their lances and carry the day with a thundering charge!
## Brand New Tycoon Game Mode
Tycoon is a brand new, casual friendly game mode that puts the focus on economic superiority over military domination. Free from the pressure of head-to-head play, this new mode allows players to explore and strengthen economic strategies that they can then leverage in the other game modes throughout Age of Empires III: Definitive Editon.
## First-ever Historical Maps
Historical Maps are a new variation of Random Maps. Randomly generated for endless replayability, these 8 new maps dive into history with Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition with unique objectives for each map, based on some of the most memorable conflicts on the European continent.
** The Italian Wars*
** Eighty Years’ War*
** The Deluge*
** Great Turkish War*
** Great Northern War*
** Napoleonic Wars*
** Russo-Turkish Wars*
** The Thiry Years’ War (MP Exclusive Diplomacy Mode Map)*
We’ll that’s pretty hot. I love that artwork.
Artwork is always top of the top.
2 battleships in that last photo, looks like they’ll have access to 2 like spain.
Great, but I also wanted scenarios / campaigns. : D
But I’m very curious about the historical maps …
30 European maps. My god.
Boy this is epic.
I dunno what you guys think but the game is now complete for me. Whatever you add for future dlcs I’ll welcome them without a word.
Finally justice for Europe.
Great Turkish War!
This is a mean for Polish and Austrians?
We need the charge of the Winged Hussars!
PD: They added Habsburgs…
While aoe2 was praying for not european civs, aoe3 was praying for them, and we got both.
Great Job Forgotten Empires!
The Italians are basically NE Italians.
I saw the deluge in historical maps. Poles next?
BTW historical/real world map is a nice feature in aoe2 that should have got into aoe3 at release. Happy the game now has more focus on the casual side.
Yeah and Habsburgs is something like Austria for me. Both could be a good couple for the:
Turkish Wars, the new dlc of AoE3…
Malta is disappointing.
