Challenge legendary heroes to battle
Age of Mythology is a classic real time strategy game that has been around for over two decades. It has gone through many iterations and editions, but the one featured is still considered by many to be the most iconic version. Developed by Ensemble Studios and published by Microsoft Game Studios, Age of Mythology takes gamers back to a time when gods and mortals lived side-by-side and engaged in epic battles for control of an ancient world.
About the Game
In Age of Mythology, players take control of one of four civilizations — Egyptians, Greeks, Norse or Atlanteans — and embark on an epic journey to build a powerful army that will allow them to conquer their foes. The game focuses heavily on resource management — players must gather resources in order to construct buildings, train troops and upgrade technologies. As they progress through the campaign they will meet legendary figures from mythology such as Zeus and Thor who can provide them with special powers or abilities.
Among the game’s many features are its strategic combat system which encourages unit tactics — both offensively and defensively — its detailed economic system which allows for complex resource management strategies such as trading with opponents, its highly customizable AI which can be adjusted to suit any style of play and its range of mythical units like Minotaurs, Medusas and Centaurs which provide unique advantages.
In addition to the single-player campaign mode there is also a comprehensive multiplayer mode which supports up to 8 players at once along with various online modes such as team deathmatch or king-of-the-hill.
