Back in the day, this was the first screenshot for the first DLC to come to AoE III:
People speculated that the Regular and the Carbine cavalry were some kind of Bersaglieri, even Aussie Drongo did a video speaking about that. But this time we have a very clear side feathered hat:
The name of the screenshot is Surprise Brooklyn. Brooklyn have/had a lot of Italian descedents and immigrants, back in the day. So they are paying homenage to that and to people that thought that Italy was the first DE III DLC.
Edit: also the kneeled riflemen seems a new unit or a previous age skin for Bersaglieri
That is indeed the peculiar hat of bersaglieri, and even the uniform match perfectly… Wonder if Aussie Drongo will actually made a video about this… Since the last time he made one, although he very well knew it wasn’t gonna be italy…
I really dont know, besides that soldier that looks like indeed a Bersaglieri, I see a black soldier and an unit that looks like a State Militia from US.
The forum is only displaying the first image that I refer to the old USA Teaser, are you talking about the second one?
Right, there are USA units, as I said is a tribute to the discussion that we had earlier when we had the USA hints, while covering the Bersaglieri among the crowd. If you showcase only the new units, people will figure it very easy, right?
Some Italy ideas from forums:
Still with the possibility of a new expansion in mind, here’s another idea for AoE III, this time a new civilization.
Notably missing from AoE III are the Italians, which are only indirectly mentioned as mercenaries or in flavor text in cards and technologies. Despite the nation we know today as Italy only being unified on 1870, the Italians and their ancestors were always a major figure in European and International politics since the days of the Roman Empire. Between the 16th and late 19th ce…
Hi everyone and welcome. Let me do a small introduction before we go to the heart of the matter.
So this is the fan design that I made of an eventual Italian Kingdom civ for AoE3.
I’ll start saying that I’m not that expert on aoe3 balance and mechanics as much as I’m of aoe2. So what to me may have appeared as a good idea, it may seems orribile to an more expert eye.
So for that reason nothing that you’ll read here is written on stone, but it’s subject to potential change, especially on the b…
Good comrades, how are you? I hope so, well I’ll get to the point, I have noticed that a lot has been said about the Italians and here I will honestly put the ideas I have to create a civilization (it may be horrible, but hey, the laughs are not lacking xd).
The Italians, well it has been one of the most requested civilizations since age 3 vanilla (myself included) these aspects that I will put here is simply the way I would like to see the Italians in the game (it may have several similarities…
They can put italy and ready…
There is one volunteer regiment called “Garibaldi Guards” during the US Civil War that dressed very similarly like the Italians (hence the name). So it could also be a mercenary or consulate unit.
The 39th New York Infantry Regiment, known as the "Garibaldi Guard" after the Italian revolutionary, Giuseppe Garibaldi, was an infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War.
This regiment was mustered (assembled) in New York City by the Union Defense Committee, under the leadership of Col. Frederick George D'Utassy by special authority from the War Department during the Civil War of the United States. On May 27, 1861, they deployed to Washington D.C., having bee...
But the image could suggest either way (hinting the Italian civ with an “true” Italian unit that could blend in the US army, or hinting the Italian regiments of the US civil war with a very Italian-looking unit)
Yes, but surely they will put them for a European dlc next to Poland-Lithuania to attract more people …
@DoctBaghi you have to see this too
Surprise Brooklyn more sounds like the Dutch
The historical city of Nieuw Amsterdam (New York).
Brooklyn comes from Breukelen, which is a town in the Netherlands.
Maybe like AoE2’s “Porto” pack that became Indians.
But that would mean the natives. So maybe a north american modpack like Haudenausee.
So i’m going to predict an Haudonausee modpack or update.
Yeah, like when everybody said Morocco was the next civ, and turned out it was MEXICO.
Yeah, we’re all going to be very disappointed when it ends up being Canada this time.
These are almost all USA units. Probably just a new merc
No the first leaked USA units were also mixed within a group of regular European units. Check the first image.
There’s going to be a patch updating to native civs soon…
Well, it was a civ with m,three vowels and co at least xd…
I’d really like to see Italians in the game, though I’d also like to see more civs from other regions.
I’m proudly one of those.
But the the bersaglieri hat + Italy being first choice on ranks of what civ do you want for DLC polls + original plans of including it, makes me think that we will get it.
I just have the feeling we get canada as a new civ sry.
I hope italie as well witch good priest units or churge
Can we be sure it’s not Brazil or something?
Canada is too late for the time period of the game…they became independent only in 1867, although they could put the British Canada of the war of 1812…
