New Age of Mythology expansion announced: The Titans
15th Apr 2003 | 15:16
And lo, in the age before the Greek Gods you get to control their pappies: the original Gods, the Titans. Control powers like Atlas and Cronus in this new Age of Mythologies expansion featuring, erm, the Atlanteans.
AOM: The Titans should arrive this Autumn from Microsoft, adding a new culture - the Atlanteans - to the nine existing civilisations based on Greek, Egyptian and Norse mythologies.
This expansion of AOM also includes a whopping new single-player campaign and the addition of 12 new scenarios.
Atlantean players will be able to call upon the might of the Titan gods and upgrade human units to heroes. It's quite a hefty expansion pack as it introduces 12 new god powers, 18 new human units and 10 formidable myth units to the game.
The Titans features all the class features from previous Ensemble Studios titles, like the massive armies, economics and amazing attention to detail. Of course, we've never heard of Atlanteans, so maybe it's a detail that's being pushed a good deal further - in fact, they sound a bit wet.
We're very looking forward to this, however, and expect all these lush visuals and engrossing gameplay from Ensemble Studios by this Autumn - or we'll just drop the Earth in a huff.
