Africa and some other parts of the world were being colonized by the Europeans too. So will there be anything related to this in AOE3? By this I mean maps and African Natives, Indian Natives, Aborigine Australians, Filipinos, etc. tribes to ally with.

I have not seen any talk of this, so if AOE3 is in fact entirely focused on the Americas just say so without adding a bite and we'll leave the thoughts of Africa, India, Philipines and Australia to ES for an expansion pack of some sort.

People are speculating other areas might come up in an expansion pack, though.

I'm fairly sure you could simulate an African or other theme with the editor - let's see what fan designers come up with.

The problem is that if they include Africa and Australia then they'll need to make native tribes for them too, and that means we have to wait longer. An expansion pack would be better.

Since almost every terrain in the world is probably possible, the only thing preventing you from making a scenario from somewhere else is the names of the native tribes- and scenario editors have been ignoring civ names from the start. Find something close (Iroquois settlements could pass for Melanesian, for instance) and run with it.

Another important point to remember is the differences in setting - European influence in Asia was centred on controling trade until about 1800, and Africa - apart from the Cape - wasn't colonised until the 19th century, either.

Wellent ich gugk, so hindert mich / köstlicher ziere sinder,
Der ich e pflag, da für ich sich / Neur kelber, gaiss, böck, rinder,
Und knospot leut, swarz, hässeleich, / Vast rüssig gen dem winder;
Die geben müt als sackwein vich. / Vor angst slach ich mein kinder
Offt hin hinder.
