Age of Mythology: Retold arrives on Steam on September 4

By - | Views: 13,515

Always great to see an RTS classic get revived. Age of Mythology: Retold from publisher Xbox Game Studios will be coming to Steam on September 4th.

From the creators of the award-winning Age of Empires franchise, Age of Mythology: Retold goes beyond history to a mythical age where gods, monsters, and humans collide. As a huge fan of classic RTS games, and someone who actually entirely missed the original (too busy with Age of Empires), I can't wait.

Call Upon the Gods
Choose your gods from the Greek, Norse, Egyptian, and Atlantean pantheons. Devastate your enemies by summoning powerful lightning storms, earth-shattering quakes, and even the famed Nidhogg dragon. Or call upon nourishing rains and protective Dryads to help your people grow & prosper.

Unleash the Monsters
Unleash Centaurs, Trolls, Mummies, and more. From bejeweled crocodiles who harness the power of the sun to the mighty one-eyed Cyclops, you will command diverse units inspired by the world’s great mythologies.

An Epic Mythological Universe
Embark on multiple campaigns spanning 50-missions that take you across a vast, mythical world: besiege the mighty walls of Troy, battle Giants in the frozen wastes of Midgard, and discover the mysteries of Osiris in the shifting sands of Egypt. Become a hero of myth—or even a god.

Better with Friends
Play with your friends, either head-to-head or against the advanced AI on dozens of randomly generated maps and scenarios for limitless re-playability. *

It's available for pre-purchase on Steam now. If you own Age of Mythology: Extended Edition on Steam, you also get a discount which is nice to see. They're also doing 7 days Advanced Access for the Premium Edition.

Really nice to see Microsoft doing so many more PC releases, especially on Steam too, making it super-simple to play games like this on Linux thanks to Valve's effort with Proton.

Wait, it is just another remaster/remake? So boring. Make a cool sequel at least.

The extended edition is already fine. It is not even like this looks particularly good from the trailer, not that this is that important for this kind of game.

Why not a new game, same universe and all if they want, but new... Remasters are boringly boring when i played the original for hourssss already.
I never played it the first time around, so this is fine with me, seems like it could be my kind of thing.

Raise your hand if you're tired of RTS __NOT SHOWING YOU GAMEPLAY__

Like -- grow up -- these kinds of first person cinematic in video game trailers were attractive in the 2000s because cinematic were ___impressive___ ___difficult to do___ and ___scarce___.

They are not the attractive marketing tools they used to be. Now they completely misrepresent the experience and only serve to confuse.

What are they even trying to get me to buy? Someone needs to fire marketing.

So is Age of Mythology: Extended Edition like the Age of Empires II: HD Edition (which released a year earlier in 2013) and AoM:Retold is essentially the AoE II:Definitive Edition remake? Because if so I might check it out, I was aware of AoM growing up but never had it and DE has been fantastic. (I see there are plans for two more pantheons/civilizations, which suggests they're going the DE route with it.)
