The biggest innovation is the so-called “hometown”. This differs depending on the people and can be expanded in the campaigns from mission to mission, without later losing an extension of the city. It develops like the character in a role play and allows different bonuses depending on the expansion. The resources are different for the first time than in the first two Age of Empires games: Wood, Food, Coins (instead of Gold), and Experience Points (New); the stones were left out. Experience points are needed within a scenario to receive bonuses in the form of “shiploads” from the hometown. On a cross-mission basis, they serve to expand the hometown.
Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs
The expansion pack (expansion pack) under the name Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs was released in early November 2006. In this add-on , it is possible to lead three Indian tribes as a complete people (Aztec, Sioux and Iroquois) and thus to write another story in the New World. There is also a new campaign that continues the story of the Black family. In addition, there are extensions of the existing European peoples. Here the hometowns were revised, new units and maps added. Another new option of European nations is the revolution, Instead of entering the imperial age, the player can choose to declare a revolution, thus transforming his nation into a revolutionary, heavily militaristic nation. The British z. B. can become a US Revolution in a revolution. A revolution, however, is associated with a sharp decline in the economy, as all settlers transform into colonial militia and from now on no new settlers can be trained.
