The Definitive Edition of the RTS game Age of Empires III will receive download content in the form of the Mexican Civilization. The expansion adds new scenarios and gameplay options with a Mexican theme. The paid dlc package will be released on December 1 and costs 5 euros.
The DLC includes two new Explorers, eight units, two buildings and a new Home City with special Shipment maps for Mexico. Also new content will be added in the form of the historical battle Grito de Dolores and there will be a new Revolution mechanism. The latter means that players can choose to Revolt rather than advancing to the Fortress, Industrial, or Imperial Ages. “Each uprising gives you a whole new one” deck full of opportunities”, writes Microsoft.
earlier was there already released a United States Civilization-themed DLC pack, which included nine units, a new Explorer, specific Shipment maps, and a Home City. If players have both the Mexico and the US Civilization Expansion, they will also get the historic battle “The Battle of Queenston Heights”.
In addition to the remaster of Age of Empires III, the fourth part of the series was released this year. This is the first all-new AoE game in 16 years and will feature four campaigns as of release. Tweakers wrote a review about it.
