The Age of Empires III remaster received its first major update since its late 2020 release. In addition to the weighty balance patch, a new civilization has appeared in the update – the USA. And gamers are no longer impressed by its performance. The players believe that the United States has turned out to be inadequately strong.
The USA in Age of Empires III has a series of advantages over other civilizations. For starters, she receives a box of books that will accelerate her progress towards the next era. Also, the United States receives immigration cards instead of the usual ones, like other civilizations. These cards are drawn from a pool of other civilizations, which allows you to collect the best bonuses within a match. The unique US unit, the Gatling Machine Gun, is essentially the first rapid-fire machine gun on wheels.
On the forums and channels for the game, the reaction is mixed. If earlier Sweden was called an ultimatum choice for victory, now attention is directed to the United States, as to the most imposing civilization. Naturally, the choice of the USA does not give an automatic victory, but if you play all the features and bonuses properly, you can get a serious advantage.
USA is available as a standalone DLC for $ 5, or you can get it for free by completing 50 challenges. True, only three challenges can be completed every day. So at least 17 days will have to be spent to open access. Such an offer will not work indefinitely, but the announcement of the end will be made a month in advance.
