Tale Of The Dragon Now Available!

The brand new expansion for Age of Mythology, Tale of the Dragon, is now available in the store! It includes a new civilization (with fully voice acted campaign), new maps, and 12 new gods drawn from the robust Chinese pantheon. Check it out on the store page here:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/355960

Alongside the new expansion, we have included some fixes that have been a long time coming. Most notably, the restoration desync has been fixed and should no longer be plaguing your (and my) multiplayer matches.

One note: Compatibility with saves from previous versions of the game is currently disabled. We will be patching this in over the next week, but have disabled it in the meantime to ensure a stable launch.

Enjoy!

Ordinarily, I don't write reviews - but I've always been pretty invested in the Ensemble Studios games and seeing what Microsoft and Skybox have done with one of their all-time legends has pushed me into comment.

Age of Mythology: Extended Edition. Ordinarily, to extend something means to prolong it or make it bigger somehow but if you're hoping for new content, this game does not have any. It's just the same game you played back in 2003 - but that's not so bad, because that game was great. This however, isn't - and there's some vital reasons as to why:

1 - The Multiplayer.
The most important aspect of any Real Time Strategy game is its multiplayer community and Age of Mythology has always had a creative and thriving one. This Extended Edition would too - if the multiplayer actually worked. You don't need me to tell you, just go check out the Support forum for this game. The game suffers from consistent crashes, desync, stuttering, framedrops and lag when attempting an online game. The developers blame "ancient bugs" left over from the original game despite the fact that none of these bugs were actually present in the 2003 release and accusing the now defunct Ensemble Studios (thanks Microsoft) for being responsible for your own mistakes is downright cowardly. disrespectful and lazy especially seeing as you're now flogging their product to an unaware market.

2 - The Single Player.
The AI during Single Player matches is bizarre, eclectic and at often times completely incomprehensible. Prone to suddenly stopping all activity halfway through a match for completely banal reasons (there was no food in their line of sight, you spawned too close to them etc) every Random Match is essentially a roll-of-the-dice of whether or not the AI feels like playing along this time. This problem has only been made worse by the addition of the new, COMPULSORY DLC which has 'updated' the AI to coincide with the introduction of a new civilization. Unfortunately, those who don't purchase the DLC are still obligated to download the patch, meaning they suffer from all of the bugs whilst receiving none of the reward.

3 - The DLC.
Most likely what drew you to this Steam page in the first place seeing as this game hasn't seen a real increase in playerbase in almost a year. I followed the development of the DLC for a good few months and have been heavily invested in it. The attitude of the developers and their 'effort' as far as producing quality content goes is detestable. Aside from the rather invested and community-involved attitude from those at ForgottenEmpires (a small team of fans), comment and involvement from the lead developers (Skybox) has consisted of grade-1 ♥♥♥♥-all. They spent a good few months assuring us the DLC would contain strictly new, fresh content without any reskinning, repackaging or rebranding of existing content and that turned out to be a complete lie. They also lied about having playtested the game for balance - admitting during a public streaming of the game (you can find it on Youtube) that they purposefully left the DLC broken and unbalanced as a means of making people have to play it. The DLC itsels is incredibly broken as of writing this (again, check the Support forum), with half the playerbase unable to access the DLC at all and the other half jokingly trying to laugh off the regret of their purchase.

One of the developers admitted on the Subreddit that they are currently "using the public to beta test the game" - meaning that if you buy this DLC you are not getting content, you are buying into the opportunity to test unfinished content. This coupled with the fact that the developers openly laughed at the idea of fixing the Multiplayer (again, check the stream) tells me that we aren't dealing with incompetent developers - we're dealing with scam artists.

I don't like having to write this sort of stuff about any Ensemble Studios IP because it sucks seeing their legacy ♥♥♥♥ on by untalented coat-tail riders, but if it means discouraging people from wasting their money on what is essentially a gigantic bug test, then it feels somewhat worthwhile. Only buy this if you absolutely *must* play Age of Mythology again and don't want to go through the effort of pirating the old copy and getting it to work - but know that this is not the Age of Mythology you played ten years ago and it certainly is not a well-supported or active game.

Buyer Beware,
If you have windows 10 you are likely unable to launch the game without it crashing and there is zero support for fixing this that works. This problem has been known by the developers for some time and it is unlikely that they will fix now. If you can run it though it's an excellent game with absolutely no equal within its class.

I absolutely loved this game back in it's prime. But now there's so many connectivity issues, it's really not worth $30, more like $12. Check for it on ebay, steam key.
