DE's latest DLC adds a casual-friendly gamemode to Age Of Empires 3

Age Of Empires III: Definitive Edition will feature a casual-friendly mode that blends combat and economic success in its latest DLC, Knights Of The Mediterranean. Unlike other Italian and Maltese civilisations, the DLC will feature an allegiance-shifting diplomacy mode, and a variation on random maps based on historical European wars.

The Knights of The Mediterranean DLC features two new game modes, including Tycoon, which emphasizes winning economic success for your empire over a combat victory. The devs say the technique will stop players from having to strengthen armies or defend against full-scale sieges. Another feature is Diplomacy, which allows empires to swap allegiances in multiplayer, and it sounds horrifying to me. The Knights of the Mediterranean DLC is a collection of randomly generated maps based on conflicts like the Napoleonic Wars.

Both Italy and Malta are involved in the Knights Of The Mediterranean DLC, which has their own new structure and buildings. Italy can use the Basilica for long-range combat, while Malta has fixed guns. Nine additional minor civilisations, including the Hapsburgs and Hanovers, are being added in, each giving a unique ability and a potential employer. These royal houses may be accessed by a Trading Post if you like them.

The Age Of Empires III: Definitive Edition was first introduced in 2020, revivifying the 2005 original as part of an Xbox Games studio revamp of the Age Of Empires series. It''s since been succeeded by Age Of Empires IV, which came out last October, but it''s great to see Tantalus Media and Forgotten Empires continue to support the game like this with further expansions.

The DLC for Age Of Empires III: Definitive Edition from The Knights of the Mediterranean will be released on Steam on May 26th and will be available on the Microsoft Store. It will cost you 8/9/$10.
