Cultures of Africa features six new cultures, new natural and built wonders, independent people, and over 15 new narrative events.


• Era 1 – Bantu (Expansionist)

The Bantu expansion is a postulated series of major migrations of an original Ntu-speaking group from Central- West-Africa across much of sub-Saharan Africa.

Pick this culture if you want to grab a lot of land fast and early!

• Era 2 – Garamantes (Agrarian)

The Garamantes emerged as a major regional power in the mid-second century AD. Their growth and expansion rested on a complex and extensive qanat irrigation system (known as foggaras in Berber), which supported a strong agricultural economy and large population.

• Era 3 – Swahili (Merchant)

The rise of the Swahili coast city-states can be largely attributed to the region's extensive participation in a trade network that spanned the Indian Ocean.

Pick this culture if you have lots of coasts and want to take advantage of them!

• Era 4 – Maasai (Agrarian)

A fierce pastoralist people with a Nilotic (rather than Bantu or Swahili) language. For the Maasai, achieving warrior status meant single-handedly killing a lion with a spear.

• Era 5 – Ethiopians (Militarist)

During the Scramble for Africa, Ethiopia and Liberia were the only two nations that preserved their sovereignty from long-term colonization by a European colonial power.

Tewodros II also centralized the military by creating a permanent standing army from its historical practice of temporarily raising regional armies to create a national army.

By weaving the natural cliffs and ledges into the creation of their fortresses, Ethiopia was able to fend off most colonial forces.

• Era 6 – Nigerians (Agrarian)

Nigeria unites a wide variety of cultures under the rule of one state. Although built around the three main linguistic hubs (Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo), the country brings together speakers of more than 450 languages. The variety of its terrain and the abundance of its hydraulic resources offer it significant agricultural possibilities and make it one of West Africa’s foremost producers.
