Hi All

New DLC dropping for aoe3DE on 1st Dec! Viva la Mexico or a missed opportunity??

"Description

This content brings the Mexicans as a playable civilization to Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition for the very first time. The Mexican civilization provides a broad range of new content, including: two new Explorers, a unique Revolution mechanic, 8 units, 2 buildings, and a new Home City with shipment cards specific to the Mexicans, along with the brand new ‘Grito de Dolores’ Historical Battle. In addition, the Mexican Age up mechanic allows the advancement of the civilization by choosing from different States, which provides special shipment cards and bonuses that conform to every playstyle.

The Grito de Dolores Historical Battle - As the Bourbon Reforms granted the Spanish elite more power and diminished that of the church, resentment grew among the rural Mexican population. When news of Napoleon Bonaparte's conquest of Spain reached the Americas, the words of a Catholic priest ignited the sparks of revolution.

BONUS: Owning both the Mexico Civilization and the United States Civilization will unlock The Battle of Queenston Heights Historical Battle in game."

* I have let the devs know It should read Mexican Civ instead of Mexico Civ :P

We will have the possibilities of a team game where you can have Aztec, Spain and Mexico all on the same team.

Looking forward to it and all the sombreros and ponchos that will come with the civ

They are really fast with new civs!

Perhaps they release it now to counterbalance AoE4.

What's the point of Mexico? Aztecs = ancient day Mexico.

It's like adding a Turkish civilization with the Ottoman already there...

Why do they have to introduce a stronger musketeer for every new civ? They have musketeers that can throw grenades. The power creep in this game is real.

Lakota and Haudenosaunee existed long after the US has been formed, and the Lakota in particular fought the Americans. Mexico is a bit weird, but to be honest I don't really care. New content is good for the life of the game, regardless of how people feel about it balance wise. I'm right about done with AOE 4 by now, so this is good with me.

I just hope that the keys will be given to people who will invest a minimum in saying what will be broken or not sincerly
