Which is the best Age of Empires III civilization for beginners?


Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition launched this week, and players are already flocking back to the Early Modern era in droves. While Age of Empires III still has an amazingly high skill ceiling, it’s not quite as exacting or arcane as Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, which means it’s a surprisingly good choice for newcomers to the series.

Even in its Definitive Edition, Age of Empires III has smaller maps, fewer civilizations and less complicated gameplay than its predecessor. This isn’t strictly a good or bad thing — players have been arguing about each game’s relative merits for the last 15 years. But it does mean that if you’ve always wanted to play an historical RTS, either by yourself or against other players, Age of Empires III could be a very good place to start.
