Image Welcome to the 19th century: The American colonies have revolted, gained their independence and they are now nations, the Natives have resisted colonization and struggle to keep their identities, the ancient Asian civilizations are now an active part of the world scenario and have to play their cards right to protect themselves, and in the Balkans, people fight for their independence from once powerful empires. There was one spot on Earth, however, that was ignored for a long time... We're at the modern era and all empires have focused their attention on this long forgotten, but now desirable, region.


ImageLet the scramble begin!

This mod is set in Africa. The new continent has several new random maps, wild animals, vegetation, coin sources. Enter into business with the local African Commodity traders. Explore these new environments with unique gameplay elements, such as Congo's fog of war that resets all the time and River Nile's water trade route. Read more about Maps

ImageMeet the new Cultures!

We once had the Europeans, the Native Americans and the Asians. Now, five new cultures, each with unique gameplay systems, unique units and buildings join the scramble!
- The Africans
- The Latin Americans
- The Anglophones
- The Balkans
- The South American Natives

And more to come! Read More about the Civs


ImageEveryone wants a piece of it!

All previous civilizations have been improved somehow with new units and/or new bonuses. But unfortunately for them, now they will have to dispute the new continent with several new nations! We have added Egyptians, Ethiopians, Zulu, Brazilians, Paraguayans, Argentines, Colombians, Chileans, Mexicans, Americans, Canadians, Australians, Greeks, Bulgarians, Serbians, Romanians, Koreans, Tupi, Inca, Mapuche, Danes, Habsburgs, Italians and Belgians. Read More about the Civs


ImageLots of new content!

WoL not only includes tons of stuff from Africa, but also the entire world! Check out dozens of Random Maps from every region, like Verdon Gorge, Australia and Asuncion. Our new religion system makes priests much more interesting. Spies are now extremely dangerous and tricky. Reach the ultimate age, Great War, and crush the enemy with top-of-the-line tanks, biplanes and others. In WoL, every single civilization gets a theme song that plays at the beginning of the match. Every civilization and every scenario becomes a different experience! Read More about Gameplay


ImageGrows over time!

The mod never stops growing and balancing itself- and we will be releasing free content over time, including new civilizations and random maps.

ImageEasy to install and to keep updated

WoL's installer allows you to easily install WoL and to keep it patched, that allows for a more fulfilling experience because you no longer have to worry about tricky installations. You can jump right into action!

ImagePlay team games like never before!

Wars of Liberty is more fun online! Team games become a compelling and competitive alternative to 1v1s. Create team compositions that exploit and combine the aspects of every civ, there's always something new to try. Get creative and win games!



If you tried installing previously and had issues, remember to Uninstall the Throne Room. It also is advised to delete the ''Wars of Liberty'' folder in your AoE3 installation directory from the previous attempt.

The Coldfix

Break out your winter coats and mittens, because the Coldfix is here! After months of development, work on WoL's largest balance & bugs patch is finally complete! We also have two exciting announcements at the bottom of this post, so be sure to read them!


All previously-announced features, including:

  • Lots of bug fixes, like making Berry Bushes no longer as fast to gather Food as huntables.
  • Many balance changes, like making Spies less deadlier against mercenaries and Heroes (this means your Habsburg armies are more durable this patch!),
  • Plus some new features, like new textures for Inca, Mapuche and Tupi units (thanks to Zupay!) and Mexico getting their Faith and Priest improvement techs enabled one Age earlier, among other things.
  • For a full list, read the Patch Notes on our forum!

Major AI improvements, now allowing nearly all of WoL's civilizations to function as competent enemies or allies. Special thanks to guest6777, Septafolia, all of our wonderful testers, and especially AlistairJah![


The Updater is unchanged, so you only need to Download a new one if you have not yet updated to 1.0.9. Otherwise, run your Updater and it should automatically update your game to 1.0.9d!

If you have any issues updating WoL to 1.0.9d, or need to install the base mod first, visit our Installing and Updating thread for detailed instructions.


The future of WoL is as bright as ever, and we have a couple of exciting announcements for our fans!

First, we haven't forgotten about our next update, Update 1.0.10! We plan to announce the Secret Civilization and official name of this update in the next month, so keep an eye on our forums and social media, and we are on track to release the update later this year!

In the meantime, you'll be able to test out our balance in the Coldfix in Wars of Liberty's First Official Tournament! We'll be announcing more details on that very soon, so start getting acquainted with the changes in 1.0.9d now!

Dear developers of Wars of Liberty!

Will you add Great War era before the Age of Empires 4?

That's a strong "maybe"

Greeting! As I wanted to ask, what is the name of the Song that plays most often when playing as the Americans?

I only ask because I can't for the life of me find it no matter how much I dig through the files manually!

I certainly wouldn't be asking if this wasn't my last resort!

Thank you for your patience.

If you're talking about their civ song that plays at the start of matches then it's a version of the song "House of the Rising Sun." Hope that helps!

Why it's asking for "Product key"?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Could you guys add Patricios for Argentina? as they are the nation´s prowess and the colonial milita assembled to defend against the brittish invasion. And also Argentina´s first proper military unit.

Highest Rated (4 agree) 9/10

A mod which adds 24 new nations that are unique, fun and very well made along with tweaking base nations. A ton of new maps are included too. There is soo much to discover and most of it is balanced aswell.

The only reason why i didn't give a 10 is because numerous bugs and glitches. But i know these are inevitable with such a huge mod and will be fixed fairly soon.
