The popular RTS game Age of Mythology is getting a major update in the near future. Microsoft Game Studios has announced Age of Mythology: Retold, a definitive edition-style remaster of the classic strategy game that promises the return of Greek, Norse and Egyptian gods to the digital battlefield.
Microsoft Game Studios has released a short teaser trailer for Age of Mythology: Retold as part of the 25th anniversary of the Age of Empires series. It begins in an ancient Greek temple, with the camera panning to a towering statue of Zeus. Thor’s hammer can then be seen in a forge somewhere in the snowy north. Finally, the view zips between sphinx statues and along the side of an ancient Egyptian pyramid, before retreating into clouds strewn with marble column fragments and masonry.
“By bringing the Definitive Edition treatment to Age of Mythology, the game will feature beautiful graphics, updated gameplay and more,” reads a tweet from the official account. “Stay tuned…”
Age of Mythology: Retold will be available on PC Game Pass at launch.
The game originally launched in 2002 and was updated in 2014 with the Age of Mythology: Extended Edition. That version was well supported by a long string of updates.
That’s the extent of what Microsoft Game Studios has announced so far for Age of Mythology: Retold – but we think there will be more information on it in the near future, such as a release timeline.
