Choose a culture

Wars of Liberty expanded the original Age of Empires III concept of cultures by adding three new ones, plus the two present in our previous mod, War of the Triple Alliance, being five in total. Also, we'll be adding new cultures next, the Middle-Easterns and the Southeast Asians. A culture is a set of civilizations that shares a number of characteristics which can range from units and building sets to gameplay mechanics such as aging up. It generally represents a specific geographical region. Choose your culture below to read more about them and their civilizations:

Try these civilizations if you like...


We noticed how Ensemble Studios introduced the new civilizations in the x-packs: as cultures. The Asians, for example, share a lot of similarities but are very different than the Europeans. Following that logic, Wars of Liberty introduces five new cultures, plus adds civilizations to the old ones.

Don't Miss

  • Each culture has some unique age up system
  • Each culture also has a "special building" that does something interesting
  • Sometimes we will be adding civilizations that don't match any culture: we call them the Standalones

I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
