Concentrating on the late medieval period, Age of Chivalry: Hegemony replaces or significantly alters each of the civilizations in the original game, while also adding a number of new ones, allowing the player to control Central and Western European states. Many new units and technologies have been added and gameplay dynamics have been changed considerably in this complete overhaul of Age of Empires II.

Play as Austria, Bavaria, Bohemia, Brandenburg, Brittany, Burgundy, Denmark, England, Flanders, Florence, France, Friesland, Genoa, Guelders, Helvetia, Liège, Milan, Poland, Savoy, Saxony, Scotland, Venice, or Wales. Fight against your friends or the AI through random maps or on newly crafted real world maps of Central Europe, Western Europe, Northern Italy or the Low Countries, or play through the unique historical eight-scenario campaign. Explore a whole new medieval period in Age of Chivalry: Hegemony!

6 comments by Happertesch on Apr 20th, 2015

The three new countries made available in the new beta, the Papal States, Naples and Hungary, will add to the large number of European countries that were already playable in Age of Chivalry: Hegemony.

They not only come with their own technologies, units and policy decisions, but even have unique features. Gain florins for every building you destroy as Hungary, invest in Jubilee Years as the Papal States to gain florins, or quickly train up an army of knights straight from your stables as Naples. Each also has a wide array of policy decisions to choose from, to shape your country while you play.

Other countries have also seen changes. Not only are there new technologies and units, but new graphics have been sprinkled throughout, both for units and buildings, and some castles now even have original, progressing construction graphics.

A new version of the AI is included not only supporting the new countries, but also reconfiguring the original ones. The AI now uses more varied troop combinations and strategies and utilises new technologies.

The Lateran Palace

Furthermore, the Age of Chivalry campaign has been updated. The scenarios have been combed through for bugs and rebalanced where necessary, and an additional scenario has been added, created especially by Julius999, depicting the 1379 Chioggia War between Venice and Genoa!

Medieval Florence

N.B. This is still a beta version. Not all intended graphics have been completed: some of the new countries don't have original graphics for their monument or history files yet (to be fixed in an upcoming update), and future versions will also add more new unit and building graphics!

Great mod. But I have a problem: when I launch the mod and i try a single-player game they give me this message: "You must insert the Age of Empires II:Conquerors Expansion CD to play a single-player game, and then restart", but my original game works perfectly, and I have installed the 1.0c patch, so I can't understand where the problem is. If someone can help me, I will be very grateful.

What version of the game did you have installed normally? There are some versions - including the Gold / Collector's Edition - that already have the 1.0c patch installed. If you then install the patch again, it will give you this problem. This can be fixed by reinstalling the game, not installing the patch, then installing Age of Chivalry. Hope this helps!

Unfortunately it's not possible to port this to HD, for reasons I'll explain below. On the plus side, it's still possible to get the original game quite cheaply in places like Amazon. Age of Chivalry includes the Userpatch, which makes the original game fully playable even on modern systems.

Age of Chivalry already has more civs than AoE2HD, which means it can't be ported there (as unlike the original game, HD doesn't support adding new civs) and with the upcoming patch it will also have more civs than the Forgotten expansion for HD, so porting it there won't be possible either. (HD is unfortunately far less mod friendly than the original, for example it doesn't let you use custom user interfaces and the Workshop system can't handle extensive file replacements like you'd get with a mod this size.)
