Age of Chivalry: Hegemony Wiki

Age of Chivalry Hegemony introduces changed unit lines and several new units.

New units in Age of Chivalry Hegemony[]

(also see: What's New In Age of Chivalry?)


Besides the changes to standard units, a new "unit class" has been enabled: Mercenaries.

These units are powerful warriors drawn from foreign countries to fight for florins. You need to research the Mercenaries Technology (and usually a specific Policy Decision) before you gain access to these units.

Others are drawn from certain regions belonging to the country they serve. These units therefore don't require the Mercenaries technology and even come at a different price. For example, the cost of artillery (Bombard Cannons) depends on whether a civ has to hire mercenary gunners or builds its own domestic artillery.
