3 New Maps!

Mediterranean: Teams spawn on separate land masses along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Nearby natural resources on land are limited so players must expand to the surrounding land masses while fighting for control of the sea and lucrative Trade Routes.

Description: A large sea dividing Europe and Africa that is teeming with Fish, Whales, and Treasures. Natural resources on land are limited and will be quickly depleted so players must fight for dominance of the sea and the two lucrative Trade Routes and Royal Houses. Several islands dot the sea and provide strategic points for players to control and establish a strong presence on the sea.

Settlements: Phanar, Habsburg, Bourbon, Wittelsbach, Hanover.

Outlaws: Inquisitor, Corsair Marksman.

[Knights of the Mediterranean]

Acropolis: Players begin on their own plateau with some resources. Resources are more plentiful in the valley.

Description: Just like in Ancient Greece each player begins atop their own Acropolis that can be easily defended with a few segments of walls and the starting Battery Towers. However, not many resources are present atop each plateau so players will have to descend into the resource-rich valley below to continue gathering natural resources. Greek Phanariots also know the area well and may join you in your conquests.

Settlements: Phanar.

Outlaws: Inquisitor, Highwayman Rider.

[Knights of the Mediterranean]

Pomerania: A coastal region on the southern shore of the Baltic Sea.

Description: Along the southern coast of the Baltic Sea lies Pomerania. In this region, you may take to the water and use the coastal islands to gain an economic advantage over your enemy. You may also choose to control the land instead including the long trade route in the south.

Settlements: Vasa, Wettin.

Outlaws: Inquisitor, Crabat.
