New Civilization – Italians


Age of Empires III

Unite a rich but fragmented Italy as new settlers flock to your thriving empire with every technological advance and architects build buildings for free!

Invest in Lombard to optimize your economy for quick profits, or build an imposing basilica and send papal soldiers to strengthen and supplement your army!

Use armored Pavisiers to lure opponents into a Bersaglieri ambush, or let Elmetti lower his spears and win with a thunderous charge!


New Civilization: Maltese


Age of Empires III

Protect the Mediterranean against raids with unique fortifications, don shiny armor to fend off attacks, and bombard opponents from afar with stationary weapons.

Fire casters and greatswords win battles, but your Commander’s superior logistics win wars. Fortunately, you can have both!

Fighting at sea with order galleys may wet the gunpowder, but your crossbowmen won’t mind. You can always resupply at a Gunpowder Depot or blow it up when an enemy army passes by!


New historical maps


Historical maps are a new variation of random maps. Randomly generated for endless replay, but 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 flood
  • great turkish war
  • Great Northern War
  • napoleonic wars
  • Russo-Turkish Wars

New Minor Civilizations – European Royal Houses


Age of Empires III

With the introduction of over 30 new European maps, 9 new minor civilizations enter the game, adding an arsenal of new units, technologies and unique abilities.

Representing larger entities whose influence transcended national borders rather than groups of individual people, European Royal Houses thematically blur the lines between major and minor civilizations in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition. Like Native American settlements, Asian holy places, and African kingdoms, a trading post must be built in the palaces of European royal houses to ally with them. Royal Houses provide unique ability and more units and technologies on average than other minor civilizations, but are staggered across multiple ages rather than being available in the Age of Exploration. These assets pack a lot of punch and units often utilize novel mechanics such as unit promotions, charged actions, (dis)mount, and damage deflection, but they tend to come at a higher cost than their counterparts.

  • royal houses
  • House of Bourbon
  • House of Wittelsbach
  • House of Oldenburg
  • house of hanover
  • House of Phanar
  • House of Jagiellon
  • House of Vasa
  • House of Habsburg
  • house of wettin
