In-game campaign description

The Battle of Zama is the fifth scenario of the Rise of Rome campaign in Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, replacing Zama.

Objectives Edit

  • Destroy the three Docks in Carthage's harbor.
  • Bring Scipio to the blue flags at Carthage's Byrsa Forum.

Hints Edit

  1. Reaching the Numidian camps will provide you with Heavy Horse Archers.
  2. Hannibal relies on resources gathered west of Carthage. Destroying his camps there will eventually starve him of resources needed to train his armies.
  3. A group of Priests can turn the tide of any battle against War Elephants and Phalanxes.
