Ages discovery

The Discovery Age is the first age in the game Age of Empires III. It is characterised as the beginning of settlement in the "New World", exploration around the land, and the starting point of economics for the European Settlers. It allows only a simple economy, including trade but does not allow for military development under normal circumstances. Because of limited technologies and little (if not outright nonexistent) military strength during this age, it is strongly recommended to advance to the Colonial Age as soon as possible.

Units and Buildings availableEdit

The Discovery Age is followed by the Colonial Age.

Abnormal Military Development Edit

While normally it isn't possible to train military units in the Discovery age, it is possible to acquire such units by freeing captive military units from treasure guardians, converting treasure guardians, or training pet animals. However, any army formed in that manner is very small at best, and it is usually reserved for the purposes of scouting, treasure hunting and harassing.
