Gods will return. Heroes will rise. Legends will battle. Age of Mythology Retold is in production! We know that the Age of Mythology community has been hopefully waiting for a Definitive Edition, and we’ll be delivering. We’re working hard to bring you the glory of the original game with updated graphics, features and more. Stay tuned for more news.

The Age of Mythology Retold trailer doesn’t do much other than drum up hype, but it’s worth watching whether you’re a fan or not. Age of Mythology Retold is in production now and has no release window. If you’ve not heard of the Age of Empires spinoff, Age of Mythology combines the franchise’s iconic strategy with the power of gods from Norse, Greek, and Egyptian mythology. To say that the original title was an interesting spin on the formula would be an understatement, so it will be fascinating to see it all reimagined 20 years later.

The Age of Empires 25th anniversary announcements continued today, as Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition arrives on Xbox on January 31, 2023, and Age of Empires IV is coming to consoles later in 2023.
