Choose a culture

Wars of Liberty expanded the Age of Empires III's original concept of cultures by adding three new ones, plus the two present in our previous mod, War of the Triple Alliance, making five in total. We're also in the process of adding even more cultures: 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 styles of aging up. It generally represents a specific geographical region. Choose a culture below to read more about it and the civilizations it includes:

Try these civilizations if you like...


We noticed how Ensemble Studios introduced its new civilizations in the expansions: as cultures. The Asians, for example, share a lot of similarities but are very different from the Europeans. Following that logic, Wars of Liberty introduces five new cultures, and adds civilizations to the original ones.

Don't Miss

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