Age of Mythology originally came around way back in 2002, but most fans kept playing it until 2006. They never fell out of love with it.
Age of Mythology was lost somewhere between the pages, and maybe to some it was dead, but was never forgotten. And, a burning proof of that is the newly announced expansion Tales of the Dragon. This is the first expansion for the game in nearly 13 years (since it arrived).
As far as a recap is concerned, AOM was one of the best RTS titles that was out there at the time. Sure the world was always gaga over over the Age of Empires series, but AOM was different. It brought the prominent Gods from the classical era into the mix, with God powers (still in love with the Egyptians) being a deciding factor.
During the time leading up to the present day, plenty of RTS titles came and went and were even better than what a dated AOM would ever have offered. But then again, when you have a strong inclination towards something, even though it's old and dated, you will always have a soft corner for it.
As of now, the expansion is in development at Forgotten Empires and SkyBox Labs -- the two studios that have worked on Age of Empires 2 HD Edition and last year's Age of Mythology: The Extended Edition.
In case you forgot, Age of Mythology: The Extended Edition came with the base game and the Titans expansion, aside Steamworks integration, Twitch support, a superior observer mode, native HD widescreen and improved water and lighting mechanics.
We have no idea how the new expansion will turn out for the game. However, Forgotten Empires will hold a livestream on Twitch on 2 October to reveal more on Tale of the Dragon.
Stay tuned for more updates!
