Patch 2.3 Now Live!

Patch 2.3
Just a minor update only 1 day after Patch 2.2 went out. Updating the version was necessary to prevent cross build desyncs due to the war salamander pathfinding fix.

Bug Fixes
Amphibious units can now traverse terrains properly once again.
The game will no longer spontaneously pause due to breakpoints existing in some AI scripts.
Desync tracking system will now generate logs when you play scenarios.
You cannot enable the desync tracking system in quickmatch (settings are ignored).

We're still looking into some data fixes that went into Patch 2.0 Hotfix #3 that got lost when Patch 2.1 was introduced. For example, the AI won't cross Yellow River.

We are also aware there is a refresh issue in the lobby browser. This isn't something that was changed, so we believe there is a problem on the Valve side, but we are investigating this. Some people have posted information that if you change the dropdown from ping to something else and back again, it'll recover quicker.

I'd hope for a release in 2014 game that the graphics and bugs would be fixed. The game without the boost is already a fun time and great buy. However for something that has gotten a DLC so late and has a community playing even now, I'd expect some attention towards optimization. Games like this shouldn't be crashing

An absolute buggy mess! Whatever they did to this game to "modernize" it, it does nothing but crash at various points; this with win 10, GTX 760, 16GB, i5.

Crashes on the tutorial every time. Crashes in single player random maps every time because it won't run unless you purchase the DLC. Crashes in campaigns at key points. These aren't random crashes, they are repeatable known places that the game crashes Every. Single. Time.

Spent many many hours on this as a child, so it's good to see it ported to Steam. Similar to Age of Empires but with myths and legends. What's not to like?

Did you ever want to advance to the next age?

Well now, you can't!

With the newest update to Age of Mythology: Extended Edition, you can stay in the Archaic Age for as long as you want!

Plan out your Villager rush like never before!

Witness the game closing as soon as you click "Advance to the Classical Age" in record speeds!

Yell at the top of your lungs immediately after you spent five minutes setting up your economy! Your neighbours will think you're killing someone! (which is useful for when you are actually killing someone in the future, so they think you're just playing Age of Mythology)


So buy this broken game that worked literally days ago, only $32.99!

At the beginning I found it really childish, because of the animation, but after a while i was really bitten by the game bug. I went through the whole game and I wanted more. Worth playing.

This game was my everyday life for so long. I really loved it that much. There was always so much to do and maps you could make on your own with crazy rules.

It brings me joy to see it come back to life! however, sometimes is better if they remake a game from statch than just bring one back and try to resucitate it as it was.

It is enjoyable but expect random bugs and maybe it won't even run on your pc if the gods are not pleased.

(PS: "The Expansion DLC" must be avoided, you have been warned.)

Hi,

I played Age Of Mythology years ago when it first came out. It was a fantastic game, it offered a deep multiplayer environment and had exciting god powers and myth units to differentiate if from other RTS games.

I purchased the new extended edition on Steam when it first came out. It was OK, the game was buggy and slow on my new PC but the gameplay was solid.

With this new expansion, the Tale of the Dragon DLC, the game has turned into Garbage. I'm no longer able to play random maps against and AI - they force you to buy the DLC to continue to play random maps - and the performance has, somehow, gotten worse.

I'm dissapointed in the developers and Microsoft. They released and buggy poorly performing game and over time have only made the game worse.

The fact that the DLC breaks the original game is ridiculous.

Microsoft has done serious damage to their reputation, my experience with this games maek me feel like they have no integrity!

Please don't patronize these shameless developers.
Don't buy this junk instead donate the money, help out in your community, buy the old CD-Rom version.
Do anything but buy this sad sorry excuse of a RTS.

I would recommend this game, if it would work at all!!! I had it on for over 6 months then the update happened and then poof no more worky. Fix this and ill adjust my ratingfor this game... Discard my demands and youll forever be banished to the land of no trees, no fishing, no bushes, no gold mines and constant attacks from a massive amount of myth creatures. In other words Greenland.

Avoid this as it has DLC that prevents largest map settings.

The nostalgia for these games runs out after about 3 hours and you realize how poor the AI is.

This game just went downhill after the release of the dlc as it constantly lagged. Those who didn't have it couldn't play as it was an automatic win for those with it once a certain troop comes into play after which i requested a refund for the dlc. You're unable to fully enjoy the game as they force you to have that dlc and even then it's been horrible. Hardly any players on anymore! I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

75% of the online matches crash. Overpriced af. As online multiplayer is the only thing worth paying for in this game, this is just worthless. Just download it if you want to play campaign, otherwise this game is just a big case of butthurt.

And apparently much cheaper at ♥♥♥, if you feel the need to spend unnecessary dollars.

I LOVE this game - cannot stand how Steam handles it. Won't launch, tried fixing it countless times, now after half a year of trying to get the darned thing to run again I just tried uninstalling and re-installing and now the launcher won't even pop up! Horrible treatment of one of my favorite games! Please fix this or I'm gong to get a refund.

Pretty much what everyone else said. It is sad that steam does nothing about this. The fact that there is a game for sale that does not work and is basically stealing peoples money is beyond wrong and we should all get our money back. Do not buy. Also I will alwasy read reviews now before I buy. Steam is not as honest an orginization as I once thought. Sdaly they are still my prefered way to game above Microsoft and Sony.

This game was fine literally until the DLC came out. When the DLC dropped, it introduced a lot of bugs, graphical glitches and changes that ruin the game. These changes are there even if you don't have the DLC, so thanks guys.

Don't buy this version, it's not worth it anymore.

The Tale of the Dragon is a terrible expansion to our beloved Age of Mythology's franchise! The Chinese's civilizations are unfairly balance against the other civilizations in the game.
50+ scout cavalry with low HP but high damage is an equivalent to to the Egyptian's Mercenary cavalry. Even though they have high HP, they have limited time to live unlike the Chinese's scout cavalry!
And don't get me started on the vermillion birds, this things is so OP that it's just ruin the game!
Even the Chinese's god powers are unfairly unbalanced, that's make the Atlantean's God Powers looks like a vanilla!

But the online game is really fun, the community are tight knit and friendly! There's unlimited scenario to play with and you can hone your skills against the players around the worlds. You can even team up with them and take on Titan AIs that you find it difficult to do on single player.

Over all, the expansion was terrible but thanks to Forgotten Empire for releasing this game on Steam for the fan to play and battle online as well as Ensemble Studio for being the original creator and master of the franchise.

Have fun!
