Hill Forts is a technology in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition that is unique to the Lithuanians and can be researched at the Castle once the Castle Age is reached. Once researched, it increases the range of Town Centers by 3.
Hill Forts is a very useful defensive technology, especially in the Castle Age. It allows Town Centers to outrange Mangonels, and therefore potentially stopping the enemy's advance. In the Imperial Age, the Town Centers can protect a larger area from potential raids.
- When Age of Empires II was first released, the Teutons originally possessed a free bonus with similar characteristic, where their Town Centers possessed +5 range. Since the release of The Conquerors however, the bonus was removed from the Teutons.
