Age of Empires 3: DE’s Mexico DLC adds the “most strategically diverse civilization yet”

Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition launched a year ago this month, and there’s been plenty to sink your teeth into since then, including – most recently – a big anniversary-themed bash with new maps, “tons” of Inca updates, and more. Now, Forgotten Empires and Tantalus Media have announced that there’s a new DLC coming up very soon for the remastered strategy game – and it’ll bring “the most strategically diverse civilization yet”.

The AoE III: DE Mexico DLC brings – yep, you guessed it – the civilization of Mexico to the game when it launches on December 1. “In Age III: DE, the burgeoning Mexican States can choose to revolt instead of advancing to the Fortress, Industrial, or Imperial Ages,” the devs reveal. “Each revolt offers you a whole new deck full of opportunities.”

Unlike the game’s other civs, Mexico can reverse these revolts and then return to Mexico, all while still “retaining access to the benefits of any cards sent during the revolution”. There’ll be a brand-new set of Federal States which you can use to “evolve your gameplay”, and the devs say that the Mexico civ can “adapt to any strategic situation like no other” – so it sounds like the DLC will throw something pretty new and innovative into the mix.
