The Tutorial for Age of Empires III is the first level of the game, recommended for new players.
The player plays as the British (in reality, the in-game faction is named "English Colonists"), and has one Explorer, one Caravel, three Musketeers and some Settlers (that appear after a Town Center pops out).
First, move the Explorer to designated locations (by flags), and repeat the same thing with the newly provided Musketeers.
The player must head towards a required location to set up a new colony. Then, they must continue building it and advance to the Colonial Age, after which the Spanish begin to attack. Victory is achieved when they are defeated.
- The fact the in-game faction is referred as "English Colonists", rather than "British" refers to the fact that at the beginning of the colonization of the Americas, the United Kingdom didn't exist.
- Scotland and England were legally separate kingdoms, until each parliament passed an Act of Union, at 1707, thus officially founding the United Kingdom.
