Our take

There are four ages for a tribe to progress through; the Archaic Age, Classical Age, Heroic Age, and finally the Mythic Age. Each advancement to a new age brings a selection of new units and technologies that you can use to trample your enemy.

With every advancement in your civilizations age, you’ll get to pick a new minor God, such as Aphrodite or Bast, that’ll reward you with new myth units, technologies, and expand your arsenal of God-like powers.

There are four resource types for you to collect; wood, food, gold, and favor. These four resources are used to train new units, construct a variety of buildings, research technologies, and more.

If you’d like to gain resources faster, you’re able to purchase upgrades that will drastically speed up your civilizations resource gathering.

Each tribe gathers favor in a way that honors their mythos. Vikings fight and hunt, Greeks pray, and Egyptians build monuments. Age of Mythology: Extended Edition is only available for Windows computers running Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
