Age of Empires IV launches October 28th, available for Pre-order Now!

UPDATE: As of June 15th, 2021, we’re pulling out ALL the stops and removed the daily challenge limit to help you quickly unlock the FREE United States Civilization before it ends on June 22nd, 2021! All challenges are NO LONGER LOCKED to 3-per-day!

Greetings, adventurers! Today, we have a few updates for you around the United States Civilization challenges for Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition!

First, we’ve heard some concerns about what happens after you unlock the Civilization, and we’re here to help clarify! First off, if you have unlocked the United States Civilization by completing all 50 challenges, you will own it permanently! We understand that you might be seeing information to purchase the DLC despite achieving this goal: Please do not be alarmed, all of you who worked tirelessly for your reward are not in danger of losing it! We understand this is a little confusing; since you have not technically purchased the DLC, it will continue to show up despite owning the content of it! Thank you very much for bringing it to our attention, and we hope this PSA helps ease your nerves!

For the rest of you still battling your way up; NEVER FEAR! You still have plenty of time to accomplish these tasks set before you. In fact, you have until JUNE 22, 2021, at 11:59:59 PM PDT / JUNE 23, 2021, at 2:59:59 AM EDT / 0659 UTC until the event ends for good!

United States Civilization Event Ends:


Thank you!
The Age of Empires Team

    How do you beat the Louisiana challenge to build 3 additional town centers when the game limits you to building only 2 additional town centers?

      I destroyed one of the town centers and then built another. It seems to recognise that I "built 3" town centers.

      It's not bugged. You have to complete it three times, using a different civ each time. You can't change civ. You just start it again with a new civ.

    The US challenges just disappeared! Any ideas on how to play the challenges? What happens if I didn't finish the challenges on time, I barely have time to finish 3 per day.

    Just heard about this... with the 3 states a day limit, there's no chance I can complete the challenge. FeelsBadMan.

      I think this limit no longer applies now.

    I can't get past Delaware. I'm signed into my xbox account but I can't get credit for any of my wins. I've already reported it to the support team but they don't seem to understand that the instructions they give me aren't working. so frustrating.

    • lilttleknight07 June 6, 2021
      You must complete all that is required. If it's the one that wants you to build churches. I had to play 3 games with different countries.

    ok, I've played the Pennsylvania campaign four times now, not using any cheats, and after it tells me that I have won, it gives me the option of map view, or game review, what ever. After I review everything to get out of the game I choose the Quit button and it ends, but when I go to do the next challenge, it still says that I haven't completed the Pennsylvania campaign. What's up?

    I think the best option is to give everyone who completed those challenges the DLC for free, instead. It would also help boost your stats, on Steam.

      Can you please explain the problem more specifically?

  • eggyallister May 25, 2021
    Please fix the Scenario Editor so we can make Custom Home Cities, or at the very least so we can have a Home City of 131 for the Scenario Editor. It's very difficult to make a Scenario using Decks made for other Scenarios or Campaign.

    • lilttleknight07 June 6, 2021
      I enjoy the scenario editor but would like a level 131 city also. I also would like being able to take pictures for my own back grounds.

    Started the US civilization event and got exactly one state into it. After that it gets stuck. I click on Pennsylvania but it plays California. After winning it doesn't credit the game. Exiting and starting AOE over doesn't change anything. Only state choice is to click on Pennsylvania and then California shows up with me playing the British. I've already wasted too much time one this. Steam claims this is a Microsoft issue.

      I have the same problem as you guys how you solved it
    • deepsquatter May 26, 2021
      Same problem here. I click on Pennsylvania but the California map shows up. When I win, nothing happens. For some reason, it also assigns me random countries. George Washington was an ally but the game made me french.

      From the main screen I click on US challenges and the only selectable state is Penn. The picture of that state comes up and everything. Click on BEGIN which opens the single player skirmish screen. Note: I am assigned the British civilization. In the pull down I didn't see an option for US. Along the same lines, under select map California pops up. In that pull down I find some states but no Penn. The closest I found is "American Maps" under the select map but that just ends up selecting a random territory. Is there any way to reset this whole thing and start over?
    • mclerristarr May 22, 2021
      Do you mean the California map? For most of them, the map you play on doesn't matter. If you need a specific map, you can adjust it in the pre-game set-up.

    Any update? Villagers are getting stuck in the mills/planations AGAIN. Balance changes are expected towards the USA. State Militia in the treaty is slightly broken. Swedes still need some nerf in the treaty. On the other hand, is India still underperforming in the treaty because of its elephant population, some late-game buff towards the camels MAYBE? Appreciate all your work.
