The official AoE3 website claims you can play "multi-player campaigns":

Play against your friends
There are several multi-player campaigns where you can get into some heated battles with your friends.

However, the only campaign I've found in the game was the single-player one. The very "Campaign" menu option is only available after you click "Single Player" first.

There are multiplayer scenarios, but I don't think they mean that. The game itself distinguishes between "scenario" and "campaign", so does the official website, I guess.

So what are "multi-player campaigns" and how do I play them? I use "Age of Empires III: Complete Collection" from Steam.

There are no built in multiplayer campaigns within the game. If you want to play multiplayer campaigns, you will have to download them from 3rd party multiplayer campaign providers.

  • The question was not "where can I get multiplayer scenarios". The question was "what are multi-player campaigns, as mentioned at the official site". Are you sure that when they talk about "multi-player campaigns", they mean 3rd-party multiplayer scenarios? AFAIK, "campaign" and "scenario" are to distinguished terms in AoE. – enkryptor Jul 17 '18 at 12:24
  • Campaigns as we all know are collections of scenarios right? So it is just a matter of downloading custom made campaigns (collections of scenarios) and playing them consecutively with your friends. I hope this makes my answer clearer. – Sofonias Ayele Jul 17 '18 at 18:21
  • A collection of scenarios is just a collection of scenarios. A campaign is something more — it has its own storyline and progression. A campaign contains scenarios, but they are not random 3rd party ones. Are you sure that when they talk about "multi-player campaigns", they mean 3rd-party multiplayer scenarios? – enkryptor Jul 17 '18 at 18:56
  • Even though It would be a great idea to include multiplayer campaigns within the game itself, it would create some problems like all players have to be online at the same time which could be quite uncomfortable. So yes, it would be necessary to download 3rd party scenarios from the web. – Sofonias Ayele Jul 18 '18 at 6:03
  • "There are several multi-player campaigns" the official site says. Are you sure that when they talk about "multi-player campaigns", they mean 3rd-party multiplayer scenarios? – enkryptor Jul 18 '18 at 11:12
