It is a strategy video game developed by Ensemble Studios and released by Microsoft Game Studios. It was released in North America on October 30, 2002, and in Europe a week later.

FULL NAME:Age of Mythology

Age of Mythology, like most strategy games, is focused on destroying enemy units and cities, building your units and towns, and training villagers and warriors. Players can take down and conquer rival cities and empires in this manner. Players progress their tribe through four ‘Ages’: beginning in the Archaic Age, the player can also upgrade to the Classical Age, the Heroic Age, and finally, the Mythic Age.  Each upgrade to a higher age activates the player’s new units and technologies, strengthening their settlement. However, upgrading involves the payment of a sum of funds and the construction of a certain prerequisite building. 

Age of Mythology is a spin-off from the Age of Empires series, it took some of its influence from Greek, Egyptian, and Norse mythology, and legends, rather than from real historical events. Several gameplay elements are similar to the Age of Empires series. The campaign follows an Atlantean admiral, Arkantos, who is forced to travel through the lands of the three civilizations of the game, searching for cyclops who are in alliance with Poseidon against the Atlantis. 

Age of Mythology was successful commercially, going platinum after selling over one million units four months after its release. In 2003, an expansion pack, Age of Mythology: The Titans followed, and Era of Mythology: Extended Edition was released via Steam on May 8, 2014, for Windows.

Warring groups collect assets and use them to create on-site military bases and armies. Buildings can only be built on the building slots of predefined parcels. Plots vary from farmhouses to full-fledged castles, with numerous slot structures and buildings available, and when they are in the sole presence of a side’s armies, plots may even be bought. The only resource is the nebulous “resources,” that are inexhaustibly generated in dedicated buildings. The War of the Ring is fought by four forces on two sides: the horse-lords of Rohan and Gondor with their forges and battlements are the ones representing the Free People.  The Battling Uruk-hai of Isengard and Mordor’s Orc Hordes, backed by Haradrim, Mûmakil and Trolls, are the ones representing the Forces of Darkness.
