Definitive Edition’ gets Mexican Civilization

Mexican civilization joins Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition in DLC next week.

Forgotten Empires heralded the arrival of Mexican civilization Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition on December 1 as new DLC.

The official blurb reads: “In Age III: DE, rising Mexican states may choose to revolt instead of advancing to the Ages of Fortress, Industry, or Empire. Each revolt gives you a whole new deck full of opportunities. Unlike any other civilization, Mexico can reverse its revolts and return to Mexico, while retaining access to the benefits of any cards sent during the revolution.

“Add a whole new set of federal states to evolve your gameplay and Mexican civilization can adapt to any strategic situation like no other.”

Additionally, Historical Battles will also receive a new scenario unique to the Mexican Civilization DLC. “Grito de Dolores, as the Bourbon reforms granted more power to the Spanish elite and diminished that of the Church, resentment grew among the Mexican rural population. When news of Napoleon Bonaparte’s conquest of Spain reached the Americas, the words of a Catholic priest ignited the sparks of revolution.

On December 1, all owners of the previously released United States Civilization DLC will receive the historical battle The Burning of USS Philadelphia for free, even if they do not own the latest Mexico DLC.

Additionally, owners of the United States and Mexico Civilization DLCs will have access to another historical battle called “The Battle of Queenston Heights”. This battle will be available to owners of both DLCs even if players purchase each DLC separately.

An in-game event will also begin when new DLC arrives, called Fiesta Mexicana, which will celebrate all 31 states of Mexico. Starting December 1, players can participate in 31 challenges to earn unique profile icons, while players who complete all 31 challenges will unlock unique skins for in-game explorers.
