Objectives Edit

  • Help destroy the British on your side of the river.
  • Find and destroy the British Fort Command building.
  • Find and control the only Trade Route. (300 XP)

Players Edit

As soon as the player destroys the British on their riverbank, some French buildings will be under their control, so they can create a base.

Allies Edit

  • French (French) - The French are being attacked by the British at the start of the mission, if you defeat the British on your riverbank, the French will give you some of their buildings for you. Sometimes they will send their troops to help you overthrow the British fort

Enemies Edit

  • British (British) - The British attack the French on the French bank of the river early in the mission, and possess a mighty fort and several buildings across the river.

Strategy Edit

The level minimap

As the cutscene ends and the level begins, the British have a large force inside the French town. The player should send their forces forward to assist the French as quickly as possible.

Afterwards, some of the buildings come under the player's control, so they can build up a base and prepare to assault the British base. Fortunately, the French will help protect the player's base, and send some assault forces of their own.

There is a second objective, to capture the Trade Route on the eastern side of the British fort. Doing this will earn a lot of experience, which will allow the player to send more Mercenaries from the Home City. With a few Artillery pieces at their side, they'll be very effective.

When the player has built up a large army (and possibly taken over the Trade Route), it's time to attack. Focus on taking out their troop-producing buildings, and use artillery against the British fortifications.

Aftermath Edit

Once the British are defeated, George Washington will step forward to tell John Black that Warwick fled west, toward The Great Lakes.
