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 hospital's techs still mess up. The late game tech just disappear as I upgrade the previous one. The tech that add 10 pop cap and reduce training time just by like 70% just disappear.

I'm having a problem. I entered windowed mode, and now for some reason I can't make it go back to full screen mode. I clicked the option to turn off windowed mode several times, but it wouldn't do it. I even did a full reinstall of the mod, and it didn't work. Is there any way to make it go to full screen again?

Just run WoL as admin.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Install with WoL instaler, and later run ''Updater'' (located in main WoL folder). It will download each patch automatically.

The Danish deck is a teaser for future updates right ?
They got Maxim guns and colonial mercenaries from all over their empire (In the European rework post you said that mercenary cards would be updated to better reflect colonial empires).

Fun mod! Awesome maps and new game features. Many many nations, but still there some serious balance issues. Is good to see that patches come sort of often, and is a very alive mod. Would be nice to have better balance methods, but in general very fun, best mod for Age of Empires 3 ever with a very devoted team.
