The Aztec civilization is first featured in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors as one of its new playable civilizations and in Age of Empires III as a Native American tribe. It is once again present as a major civilization in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs.

Age of Empires II: The Conquerors[]

Main article: Aztecs (Age of Empires II)

In the expansion for the second installment of the series, the Aztecs play a major role in the game, having their own campaign in which the player is commanded to repel the Spanish invasion of Tenochtitlan. As well as the Mayan civilization, they lack cavalry and gunpowder, but have access to the Eagle Warrior as kind of a replacement.

Age of Empires III[]

Main article: Aztecs (minor native)

Aztecs are one of many Native American tribes to forge alliance with. They provide units such as the Aztec Eagle Warrior and Aztec Jaguar Warrior. They can be found in Sonora and Yucatán.

In The WarChiefs, they are replaced by the Zapotec.

Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs[]

Main article: Aztecs (Age of Empires III)

The Aztecs are one of the three civilizations added in The WarChiefs. Most of their military units are unique to them, with the exception of Canoes and War Canoes. Like their The Conquerors counterpart, they lack cavalry and artillery. To make up for this, the Aztecs have specialized infantry units that fulfill similar roles.
