Age of Mythology Extended Edition Release Date Announced

Few games have stolen hours from my day like Age of Mythology. As far as I’m concerned, it will forever be the definitive Age of Empires experience. The problem is, in recent years it’s been a hassle to launch the game on a modern PC, and the visuals — while less important than the content — are cringe worthy. Thankfully, Age of Mythology, The Titans expansion, an improved rendering engine, full Steamworks support, Twitch TV integration and more are coming this year.

According to the recent post on the official Age of Empires website, the game will launch early May 2014 on Steam. Check the full list of features below:

  • Time of Day
