Age of Mythology: Extended Edition

Microsoft now has a studio wholly devoted to the Age of Empires series, and is currently working on remastered 'definitive' editions of Age of Empires 2 and 3. Meanwhile, Relic Entertainment is busy creating Age of Empires 4. And now it sounds as though Microsoft may have plans to revive Empires' more fantastical spin-off, Age of Mythology.

Speaking to Eurogamer at E3, Age of Empires creative director Adam Isgreen hinted that Age of Mythology was something the team may be returning to once they've gotten the definitive editions are finished.

"It's great to see how much love there is for Age of Mythology, 'cause I love it too," he said. "It's more of a… less accurate history. It's super loose, people just have fun, and I love that too."

"After we get through the definitive editions for the three here, and [Age of Empires 4] is kind of rolling, then we're going to look back and see what we can do with Myth," Isgreen went on. "Because I love Myth, we're not going to leave it behind, we'll figure out what to do with it then."

Isgreen was noncommittal on what exactly he has in mind for Age of Mythology, although another definitive edition seems most likely. However, Age of Mythology: Extended Edition came out in 2014, and another remaster of the 2002 original might be a little underwhelming.

Isgreen said his team is planning a new patch for Age of Mythology: Extended Edition "really soon," which will fix some exploits and address various player concerns.

Age of Mythology: Extended Edition

Age of Mythology, the classics-based classic, sounds like it will get some attention from Microsoft in the not-too-distant future, although what kind of attention that might be is still a little vague.

Speaking to us out at E3 this year Adam Isgreen, Creative Director for all things Age of Empires at Microsoft, said the team would be taking a look at Age of Mythology "after we get through the Definitive Editions for the three here, and [Age of Empires] 4 is kind of rolling".

For a quick refresher on that, the original Age of Empires already has a Definitive Edition out in the wild, whilst AOE 2 and 3 both had Definitive Edition's announced back in 2017, along with the announcement of AOE 4.

View patch notes here.

A patch with several important rebalances and fixes for desync and other issues.
Mar 25, 2016
Age of Mythology: Extended Edition - MSPlus2Joe
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.

Desyncs
Fix for rare Chinese Barrage God Power desync. It was based on the meteor power, but wasn't using LandSfx, and that value was uninitialized, so when it became valid on one machine, it would desync (value had to be 0-900 out of a range of 4 billion). This was quite similar to the restoration desync that was fixed in an earlier patch.
Fix for rare desync involving Ulfsark Starting units after being killed. May have affected other new units such as Alfred or any of the new DLC units, including the Chinese town center upon resign. Regenerating protoanimextents.dat file was needed (adding all new units since the Titans expansion shipped).
There is still an outstanding desync involving resigning that we are still looking into but we have improved diagnostics that have been exposed to this patch release to help catch it.

Mod Manager
Additive God Powers and Random Map scripts now work again when they aren't contained within a versioned subfolder.
Optimized startup time of Mod Manager and modded files are no longer listed twice (that was not the only optimization).

General
Some fixes pertaining to tech trees and hotkeys in 2.0 were accidentally nuked by the introduction of the Version system in 2.1 and they are back.
