The United States of America, simply known as the U.S. is an American civilization featured in the Act I: Fire campaign of Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs that depicts the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783).

In the New World, the newly established United States of America expanded its territories westward during the 19th century, eventually becoming a world superpower by the 20th century.

In the original Age of Empires III, the United States only appears in the Act III: Steel campaign and resembles the British civilization.

Age of Empires IIIEdit

Civilization bonus: Extra Manor Houses that spawns one Settler.

Royal Guard units: Musketeer, Hussar

Unique units: Rocket

Revolution Politician: George Washington

The United States can have a powerful economy because they can create Settlers faster than other civilizations since like the British they spawn settlers whenever a Manor is built.

The United States military is very powerful especially later on in the game because their Musketeers and Hussars, two mainline units, can be upgraded to Royal Guard level.  However unlike the British they train Skirmishers instead of Longbowmen and can also train rockets from their Artillery Foundry and Heavy Cannon from their Factory.

The United States is also a Revolution civilization in the The WarChiefs that are an option to the British and the Dutch and the civilization's special ability is to give Gatling Guns more hit points. The United States' politician is George Washington who is also a playable character in Act I: Fire.

Mod appearances Edit

The United States also appear as an fully playable civilization in several mods. The most recognizable are in The Napoleonic Era mod and Wars of Liberty mod.

In both mods, the United States are played in a different way from each other.

The Napoleonic Era Edit

During the period from 1789-1849, the United States government was formed by its first president, George Washington.

In numerous wars against Europeans and American Indians, as well as the acquisitions of landscapes and other agreements was formed the American temper and a large, solidified nation.

Their personality is George Washington, He is a defensive character who tries to defend his citizens. War is a necessary evil, to him. He looks for trade routes, if possible. His settlements never will be defenseless.

Wars of Liberty Edit

The United States of America has, in the wake of Manifest Destiny and westward expansion, doubled in size and power. As the Union continues to grow, it needs a capable leader to keep it together.

Abraham Lincoln, born in Kentucky, raised a strong-armed farmhand, and practiced in law, is just the man for the job. Tall, honest, and committed, President Lincoln will lead the United States into prosperity.
