Welcome to Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms; the second new official expansion for the Age of Empires II universe in over 16 years. Challenge friends with four additional civilizations, new units, ships and technologies. Fight your way through the African continent with four campaigns and obliterate your opponents with a fresh batch of units under your command!

  • 4 New Civilizations
    • Berbers – Unite the tribes of Northern Africa and set sail for Europe. Can you hold your ground against the scrambled kingdoms of Iberia?
    • Malians – Follow in the footsteps of the great Mansa Musa and become the greatest king of Western Africa.
    • Ethiopians – Relive the glory of the once mighty Aksumite empire and rule over the Red Sea.
    • Portuguese – Set sail for the new world, discover new routes to unknown lands and expand your trade routes to the mighty African empires.
  • 4 New, Fully Voiced Campaigns
    • Tariq ibn Ziyad: Prepare to lead an army of Berbers and Arabs across the sea to Iberia, to defeat the fearsome Visigoths and bring the banners of war to the powerful Merovingian kingdom.
    • Sundjata: Said to possess a magical instrument that guarantees victory, Sumanguru, King of the Sosso, is poised to forge a new empire. Can you help Sundjata, the crippled prince of Mali, defy the odds, defeat Sumanguru, and become the most powerful ruler of West Africa?
    • Francisco de Almeida: Daring Portugese explorers have returned from India and given hope of glories and wealth unachievable in the Old World. Can you lead an armada to the East and forge an empire that spans three continents and two oceans?
    • Yodit: The beautiful princess Yodit has a promising future at the Aksumite court. But when her jealous nephew accuses her of theft, Yodit is forced to flee her home country. Witness how exile shaped this fallen princess into a mighty queen.
  • New Generic Units and Technologies
    • Arrowslits – Increase the power of your Towers and Keeps as they hail arrows down upon your foes.
    • Arson – Help your melee units burn enemy buildings to the ground with this new Castle Age research.
    • Fire Galley – Bring fires to the attack earlier in the game with this new Feudal Age ship.
    • Siege Tower – Hide units inside the tower and help them scale your opponents walls.
  • Sudden Death Game Mode
    • Be prepared to defend your town center in this new game mode. Each player only gets one, and if you lose it, it’s game over!
  • Improved AI
  • 10 New Special Maps
  • 8 New Real World Maps
  • 5 New Random Maps
  • 10 New terrains

THE NEXT VERSION OF AGE OF BLOODSHED HAS BEEN LAUNCHED

Ocean Texture

The time has come. The latest and greatest version of the mod has been launched! As you all know, this has been one of the largest mod projects ever conceived for Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms. I have been asked if this mod supports other versions of the game. The truth is that I have no reason to believe that it doesn't, but of course, the best experience is the way it was meant to be played. It is meant to be played with The African Kingdoms.

There may be a new expansion after this mod, but I have already done so much and I am moving on to other projects. As always, I may return to this mod and add more missions, more textures, and more content. But for now, I am taking a break.

Soviet Union

This has been a singular project that I have not shared with anyone and it has had a singular focus: to build the greatest Age of Empires II HD mod there is. In the future, there may be other mods that copy my textures and my ideas, but as long as I am given the appropriate credit and you make some slight variations, then we will be okay. You will find the download link below as well as a link to this mod on nexusmods. This is farewell, for now.
