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

New units in Age of Chivalry HegemonyEdit

(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. Some of them therefore don't require the Mercenaries Technology.
