William Wallace was a Scottish Knight who led an army of Scots in an attempt to keep Scotland a free and independent kingdom. He is featured and playable in his campaign, which introduces new players the gaming experience of Age of Empires II.
Unit EditWilliam Wallace is an infantry hero with the appearance of a Champion. He is available in the Scenario Editor, and makes his only appearance in the last battle of the Learning Campaign, The Battle of Falkirk. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health (since The Conquerors). Also, he is slightly faster than a Champion.
Wallace was the strongest hero in the game until the release of The Conquerors, in which Admiral Yi Sun-Shin takes first place (albeit as a ship). With the release of The African Kingdoms, the Abraha Elephant is able to defeat Wallace in single combat, as is Le Trien from Rise of the Rajas, which puts Wallace in fourth place.
William Wallace Learning Campaign Edit
"The warriors of Scotland attempt to hold off an invasion of the better equipped English armies. Take the command of the highlanders, and learn the basic concepts of Age of Empires II, such as how to build an economy, how to train your soldiers and, most importantly, how to fight and defeat your enemy. If you are new to real-time strategy games, you will learn all you need to know. If you have played the original Age of Empires, then you can skip ahead to new features, such as garrisoning and formations."—In-game campaign description
