Age of Mythology: Retold Will Emerge on Xbox, PC, and Game Pass in September

The Greek gods will soon be throwing down in this cooperative RTS game.

Among the more pleasant reveals of the Xbox Games Showcase this year was that Age of Mythology: Retold from World's Edge would be coming to Xbox in addition to PC. The real-time strategy genre tends to be a little dry, but the Age of Mythology series overcomes that limitation by featuring awesome mythological gods and creatures. Console and PC gamers will get to experience that magical strategy mixture when it arrives on September 4.

Official description:

  • 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.

The trailer certainly showcases some exciting scenarios and characters. It will be interesting to see how well the controls adapt to playing with a controller. Real-time strategy games usually favor a mouse and keyboard setup, after all. We'll find out how it works in a few months!

Age of Mythology: Retold will arrive on Xbox and Steam on September 4. It will cost $49.99. The game will also debut on Game Pass.
