Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition – Knights of the Mediterranean Teaser

Ensemble Studios and Microsoft have shared a brief teaser for Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition. The video reveals that the game will be getting a new expansion Knights of the Mediterranean on May 26th.

Knights of the Mediterranean brings a wealth of new content to Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition, including the addition of the Italians and Maltese Civilizations, the brand new casual friendly Tycoon Game Mode, and the first-ever set of Historical Maps, bringing endless replayability with a historical twist.

New Civilizations:

  • Malta – 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!
  • Italy – 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!

Tycoon Game Mode
