The Babylonians were the inhabitants of the Babylonian Empire, which once controlled the region of Mesopotamia at its height. They are a playable civilization in Age of Empires and are primarily a defensive civilization in both land and water maps. They can survive multiple enemy rushes with their doubled Tower and Wall hit points bonus. Villagers gather stone 30% faster and their Priests regain their faith 50% faster, making them a good choice for beginners or those who favor a turtling strategy.
