"Call a handful of Minutemen to defend this colony!"—In-game description
Levy is a technology in Age of Empires III that can be researched at the Town Center by European civilizations. Once researched, six Minutemen spawn at the Town Center. Unlike other technologies, Levy is available at every Town Centers the player has, but can only be researched once as with other technologies.
With the Colonial Militia Home City Card, Colonial Militia will be available at Town Centers, which spawns fifteen Minutemen, effectively allowing a Town Center to muster two groups of Minutemen at once or mustering a second group of Minuteman.
Civilization differences Edit
- The Indians can research Levy by allying with the Ottomans at the Consulate (requires a level 40 Home City), which costs 200 export but the Minutemen spawned by the Consulate version will appear on the Home City shipment point.
- Levy can be used to assist in gathering Treasure, hunting the enemy heroes and scouts, or to harass the enemy with hit and run on their gatherers, who will perish in a single barrage by all six units (with the exception of Coureur des Bois and Settler Wagons).
