Cooperative battles are now available at Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition.
As explained in the Steam Update, this new mode presents “narratives and historical objectives” with “the same gameplay that you know, but adjusted for cooperative experiences”, with complete dubbing of voice and an AI adapted to face two opponents instead one’s.
So far the popular strategy game had a competitive multiplayer, but now it can be enjoyed in the company of a friend. In this sense, Microsoft has revealed that for battles that require any of the DLC only it will be necessary for them to have the user who sends the game invitation.
In total there are twelve historical battles, six of which come from the base game (Algiers, Christopher da Gama’s Expedition, Chuvash Cape, Raid on the Caribbean, Fort Duquesne and Battle of New Orleans) and another six of the different DLCS (The Battle of The Three Kings, Fall of The Hausa and The Era of the Princes, DLC The African Royals, DLC United States Civilization; Scream of Dolores, DLC Mexican Civilization; and Battle of Queenston Heights, which It requires both DLCs).
Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition was published in October 2020 and renewed one of the great exponents of the PC strategy gender. In our analysis we told him that “with cosmetic and quality of life changes, but leaving the base intact, this is the best way to play an indisputable classic.”
