"Although Ensemble likes to give their games an authentic historical 'feel,' they never constrain themselves just to the facts. For this reason, players can play "what if?" scenarios, playing out the results of aggressive Russian colonization in the New World or the results if the Ottoman Empire had decided to focus its considerable might on colonizing the other hemisphere."

Hmm?

Really Nice find!!!

It seems walls are buildable, so I guess those walls could have units on them too.
*Goes to save all the new screenshots*

ooo, a hint on Ottomans and Russians being the last 2 civs.

*Is expecting a post from ES soon*

Yes, as Theias already quoted above, it would seem the last two civs are Russia and the Ottomans.

Brits and Ottomans and Russians, oh my!

Those walls look pretty sweet, as well.

Can units go on the walls? I hope so, there are even ladders there for them to climb up (hope it's not just for detail).

No probs everyone!

The walls do look awesome. I was surprised that AoE3 would have big solid walls like that.

The mis effects are beautiful in the ship screenshot. The water is nice, but i think R&Fs water beats it, hands down.

Good of you to post this here. I love that new screenshot with the ships emerging from the foggy waters and the one with the Yellow Dome.
The walls look good too, I see a few ladders leaning on them here and there. Perhaps you might be able to man them with soldiers, like in Stronghold.

Read the whole thing.

What stood out the most to me was the new fifth age, but the rest was still interesting.

*waits for the other links to work*

Edit: Heh, two 5th age topics popped up within the same minute.

The preview was so awesome!! I love it.

The music is such an important aspect, and I'm happy to see ES putting a lot of effort.

It would seem they will put the other two up today.
