Empire Wars is an additional game mode to accompany Supremacy, Treaty and Deathmatch, available to play RIGHT NOW!
Popularised in the Redbull Wololo tournament series for Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, Empire Wars instantly transports you to the action with a pre-built town, additional resources and a bolstered economy.
Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition is much the same, only instead of a pre-built town, players can place buildings as they see fit. Through a steady trickle of free Construction Wagons from the Homecity, wagons are transformed into buildings of your choosing – making what you build and when a strategically valuable decision!
|Designed to get you straight into the action, Empire Wars begins in the Exploration Age with enough resources to advance with a Politician, Wonder, or Federal State, etc, right away!|
|All Cards and each Age-Up deliver Construction Wagons that can construct nearly all default buildings (excluding Houses*, Town Centers and Banks).|
|Shipments are earned more frequently, arrive faster and an additional shipment is awarded upon reaching the Commerce Age, ensuring every match begins on even footing.|
|Many buildings are available to be constructed an age sooner – including an additional Town Center.|
|Most civilizations begin with a free Outpost Wagon or Castle Rickshaw – other starting units/resources vary as per balance requirements, detailed below.|
