Found the Barbary evidence in a recent AOE social post. You just have to have eyes like a hawk!

Barbary Pirates civ could be cool, but it’s probably not the time for such a civ yet. I think that “plundering” civs could be cool, as they would have “loot” as a fourth resource and have the ability to loot the opponent. Such civs could include: Barbary Pirates, Tatars, Cossacks and Caribbean Pirates.

I agree. I would absolutely love a plundering set of civs. Whether people like pirates/raiders or not, the AOE3 time frame is the golden age of plundering ‘anti-civs’. They all had base of operations and operated via contracts or on their own backs. They had a hand in the rise of professional navies, influence in young nations (US) and helped quicken the demise of certain declining empires.

But yes, this is something for way after the ‘proper’ law-abiding, non-shady Civ pool is done and dusted!

Is that supposed to be Joan of Arc because she never led troops into battle.

Dunno. It’s from the AoE socials media post. I’m more on the look out for all the hidden Easter eggs for AoE3. I care not, for Joan of Arc.

AoE4 can’t do justice to Canada as a civ. Are there even controllable bears in that game? AoE3 has bears with friggin laser beams!

I think that wouldnt fit, I don’t remember any Amazigh kingdom on Modern Age. IMHO they fit well as an alliance and minor tribe. After all, they were arabized and minorized by Arabs


This message contains a divisive opinion and content, carring a intent to start or continue heated argument and flame war about the last detail of why a civ should or shouldnt be ingame. Furthermore, this post is meant to be harsh and argumentative. Additionally, of course this post is not spam. Finally, this post is intended to be combative, maybe isn’t combative enough so I would came back and add more salt and flame.

If there is a DLC to fill out the Northern Africa regions, the regular Civs that will be added will be the Moroccans and the Songhais. Especially, Songhais have no real presence in the game, despite being depicted as an ally that the Hausa can choose. Therefore, I think it is necessary to make up for it.

Considering the precedent, I think it is more likely that Civs that appear in Revolution options such as Barbary States will be released as individual Civ DLCs like the United States and Mexicans.
