The Wars of Liberty team is hard at work on the December Update, and we have exciting news about what is in store for our great fans in the next few days! Besides the usual bug fixes and balancing, we will also be adding hotkeys to the new civilizations to aid in competitive play - and make it much easier to use micro-intensive civs like the Zulus!
The December update will also include the recently-announced civilization of Peru! Read below for more information on this unique new civilization!
The history of independent Peru begins on July 28, 1821, the day that the Argentine General José de San Martín, head of the Liberation Expedition, proclaimed the independence of Peru in Lima. Peru has experienced a time of prosperity, know as the Age of Guano, a period of economic stability that ended shortly after the war with Spain. General Ramón Castilla canceled external debt, gave Peru an important international position in the continent, promoted intellectual and material progress, initiated the development of the Amazon, founded the diplomatic service, initiated educational reform, modernized the army and created a respectable naval force.
In Wars of Liberty, the Peruvians have a weak economy, as they receive little economic support from their Home City. However, they have a strong military, and many special tactics that allow them to strategize effectively against their enemy.
- Rush! Every building-dependent system will be enabled one age earlier, including Town Centers, Immigrants, Religions, and Military buildings.
- Retreat. Dead units increase nearby allied unit speed and give LOS.
- Military Fortresses. Military Buildings shoot when garrisoned with villagers.
- Guanera. Peruvian Unique Building. A sea plantation that returns some of your XP back with each shipment you deliver.
Can train Decoys.
Can garrison in any building.
Heavy infantry grenadier.
Very weak infantry with high damage and range.

Female support unit and healer trained from the Town Center. Can build military buildings.
Rabona Hero unit sent from the Home City. Can train Decoys and build Town Centers.

We look forward to seeing the unique strategies players come up with after the December Update! And don't forget to vote for us one last time during the final day of ModDB's 2016 Mod of the Year competition! Every vote helps! We'll see you on the battlefield!
