On May 26, a new batch of DLC, called Knights of the Mediterranean, will be available in Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition.
The Italian and Maltese civilizations will be enhanced, along with a slew of new features, including the casual friendly Tycoon Game Mode and Diplomacy Mode.
The collection of historical maps will feature eight, nine new minor civilizations, as well as 30 random maps.
The Maltese will be able to make unique fortifications, use Fixed Guns, and can battle at sea with Order Galleys, use Arbalesters, and more.
Italians can use Architects to construct buildings for free, invest in the Lombard in order to improve the economy, construct a Basilica with Papal soldiers, use shielded Pavisiers to lure opponents into an ambush, and they can build the Elmetti facility.
Historical maps are a new form of Random Maps, which, while randomly generated, have unique objectives based on conflict on the European continent. These include the Italian Wars, Eighty Years War, The Deluge, Great Turkish War, Great Northern War, Napoleonic Wars, Russo-Turkish Wars, and the multiplayer-only map The Thirty Years War.
Diplomacy, a new multiplayer game game, allows you to change your loyalty to other players during a match, while Supremacy, Deathmatch, and Empire Wars are all supported. It is designed to entail economic development, and provides a setting where you should concentrate on developing the strongest economies without having to strengthen armies or defend against large-scale sieges.
Knights of the Mediterranean is now available for pre-order on the Microsoft Store and Steam, and will cost you $9.99. It will also be available for PC Game Pass.
