Long forgotten... now desired!
Who will you be in the scramble for Africa?
The hungry Empires?
The African nations?
The wait is finally over! After 10 long years, the mod reaches its final version. Say hello to Age of Empires III: Wars of Liberty. This is a free fan-made modification for Age of Empires III and requires both expansions to work. Wars of Liberty is an update of our previous mod, War of the Triple Alliance. All contents from WotTA can be found in WoL.
The Team & friends
Welcome to the 19th century: The American colonies have revolted, gained their independence and they are now nations, the Natives have resisted colonization and struggle to keep their identities, the ancient Asian civilizations are now an active part of the world scenario and have to play their cards right to protect themselves, and in the Balkans, people fight for their independence from once powerful empires. There was one spot on Earth, however, that was ignored for a long time... We're at the modern era and all empires have focused their attention on this long forgotten, but now desirable, region.Founder

Let the scramble begin!
This mod is set in Africa. The new continent has several new random maps, wild animals, vegetation, coin sources. Enter into business with the local African Commodity traders. Explore these new environments with unique gameplay elements, such as Congo's fog of war that resets all the time and River Nile's water trade route.
Meet the new Cultures!
We once had the Europeans, the Native Americans and the Asians. Now, five new cultures, each with unique gameplay systems, unique units and buildings join the scramble!
- The Africans
- The Latin Americans
- The Anglophones
- The Balkans
- The South American Natives
And more to come!
Everyone wants a piece of it!
All previous civilizations have been improved somehow with new units and/or new bonuses. But unfortunately for them, now they will have to dispute the new continent with several new nations! We have added Egyptians, Ethiopians, Zulu, Brazilians, Paraguayans, Argentines, Colombians, Chileans, Mexicans, Americans, Canadians, Australians, Greeks, Bulgarians, Serbians, Romanians, Koreans, Tupi, Inca, Mapuche, Danes, Habsburgs, Italians and Belgians.
Lots of new content!
WoL not only includes tons of stuff from Africa, but also the entire world! Check out dozens of Random Maps from every region, like Verdon Gorge, Australia and Asuncion. Our new religion system makes priests much more interesting. Spies are now extremely dangerous and tricky. Reach the ultimate age, Great War, and crush the enemy with top-of-the-line tanks, biplanes and others. In WoL, every single civilization gets a theme song that plays at the beginning of the match. Every civilization and every scenario becomes a different experience!
Grows over time!
The mod never stops growing and balancing itself- and we will be releasing free content over time, including new civilizations and random maps.
Easy to install and to keep updated
WoL's installer allows you to easily install WoL and to keep it patched, that allows for a more fulfilling experience because you no longer have to worry about tricky installations. You can jump right into action!
Play team games like never before!
Wars of Liberty is more fun online! Team games become a compelling and competitive alternative to 1v1s. Create team compositions that exploit and combine the aspects of every civ, there's always something new to try. Get creative and win games!
If you tried installing previously and had issues, remember to Uninstall the Throne Room. It also is advised to delete the ''Wars of Liberty'' folder in your AoE3 installation directory from the previous attempt.
(Having trouble? On a Mac? Try a manual installation) (Might need an update)
Download latest patch!
Remember that you need a fresh copy of AoE3, all updated (Steam will do that for you) in order to install the game. After that, you just download the patcher to get the game up to date.
Make sure to keep the updater somewhere, because every once in a while we will patch the game and you will have to run the updater to get the patch.
