Apple Games Features Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has posted a new feature, this time turning the spotlight on the recently released Age of Empires III expansion, The WarChiefs. The game expansion introduces a variety of new elements to the game including three Native American tribes and the associated War Chief units. The feature describes the expansion's gameplay and offers a rundown of the specifics of the new nations.

“We didn’t want the Native Americans to just feel like an obstacle in the game,” lead designer Greg Street explains when asked about their presence in Age of Empires III. “Instead, we wanted the Native Americans to feel more like a potential resource over which colonists could compete.” While that’s still the case in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs, the expansion pack also brings with it three tribes — the Aztecs, Iroquois, and Sioux — whose fortunes you can now control.

“There is plenty of precedence for this in history,” Street adds, referring to real-life alliances between Native Americans and the Europeans who encountered them. That idea forms the basis of the two-part single-player campaign, “Fire and Shadow,” found in The WarChiefs. Continuing the story of the Black family, which started in the original game, act one concerns Nathaniel Black and his Iroquois uncle, Kayenke, who fight Mohawk and Seneca tribes allied with the Hessians. They later side with Colonel George Washington and help him win the Revolutionary War.
