The Microsoft development team responsible for Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition recently revealed news about the game.

It seems that very soon, Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition will receive a new DLC: Knights of the Mediterranean.

Age of Empires is one of the most important real-time strategy game series of all time, having been a milestone in the video game industry when it was released and serving as a source of inspiration for many subsequent games.

The third game in the series, Age of Empires III was, for many players, the most intense and most complete game in the series, so much so that it was entitled to a remaster around its 15th anniversary: ​​Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition.

With the right to improved graphics and various interface and gameplay improvements, since then Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition has been fed by the responsible team (from Xbox Game Studios) so it remains alive and in good health, recommending it.

The Age of Empires team (Forgotten Empires) has recently been developing several DLCs for Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition and now comes the news of the next one to come: Knights of the Mediterranean.

Knights of the Mediterranean will be available to all players on the Microsoft Store and Steam starting May 26th.


Knights of the Mediterranean

In Knights of the Mediterranean, players will explore the Mediterranean with two exciting civilizations: the Italians and the Maltese, as well as enjoying new maps and immersive game modes.

As part of this DLC, players get to expect:

  • 2 new Civilizations (the Italians and the Maltese)
  • 30 new maps
  • 9 new Minor Civilizations
  • 8 Historical Maps (The Italian Wars, Great Turkish War, Napoleonic Wars, Eighty Years' War, Great Northern War, The Deluge, Russo-Turkish Wars, The Thirty Years' War)
  • Diplomacy game mode
  • Tycoon Game Mode

Both new civilizations bring with them different added-values. For example, with the Italian civilization, players start with an Explorer and an Architect, and can build Basilicas that enhance the growth of nearby buildings.

On the other hand, when choosing the Maltese civilization, we immediately have access to a Grand Master and we can build Fixed Weapons, which are fixed artillery pieces of great power.

This is yet another major update for a game that feels timeless.
