Knights of the Mediterranean

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

Maltese

Maltese

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! Fighting at sea with Order Galleys may wet the gunpowder, but your Arbalesters won’t mind. You can always restock at a Gunpowder Depot, or blow it up when an enemy army marches past!

Italians

Italians

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! Invest at the Lombard to optimize your economy and turn a quick profit, or construct a towering Basilica and send Papal soldiers to strengthen and complement your army. Use shielded Pavisiers to lure opponents into an ambush of Bersaglieri, or let Elmetti lower their lances and carry the day with a thundering charge!

Tycoon Mode

Tycoon Mode

Tycoon is a new casual game mode in which players vie to create the most productive economic engine for their civilization. Free from the pressure of the head-to-head military play, Tycoon allows players to explore and strengthen economic strategies for their civs and take that knowledge back into the other game modes. Victory is secured by holding the highest Tycoon Score at the end of the game round or being the first to reach the score target. Other key changes in Tycoon mode include limits to military unit caps and lifespan, and a new set of Tycoon Challenges that offer bonuses to Tycoon Score for players that are first to meet economic milestones.

Diplomacy mode

Diplomacy mode

A brand new way to experience Multiplayer with your friends. Allowing players to change their diplomacy to other players during the course of the match. Negotiate with your friends over war & peace… and make them pay for it!
