MacSoft Announces Age of Mythology
9:47 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

MacSoft today announced that it will be publishing Microsoft Game Studios’ best-selling real-time strategy game, Age of Mythology, for Mac OS X. The game has been under development by Westlake Interactive since early 2003 and is scheduled to ship in October.

Here's more from the official PR:

Age of Mythology transports players to a time when heroes did battle with monsters of legend and the gods intervened in the affairs of mortal men. Age of Mythology was created by Ensemble Studios, the makers of Age of Empires(R), Age of Empires® The Rise of Rome Expansion, Age of Empires® II: The Age of Kings and Age of Empires II The Conquerors Expansion, which together have sold over 11 million units.
Harnessing the powers of Greek, Norse and Egyptian gods and more than 40 mythological creatures, such as Cyclopes and Minotaurs, "Age of Mythology" envelops players in a world where heroes battle mythological creatures and gods meddle in the lives of mortal men. Lush cinematic scenes take "Age of Mythology" players on an epic journey of heroism, action and excitement as they delve into an immense 3-D world that features realistic sunlight shimmering across beautiful oceans and verdant forests. Varied game modes and settings suit fans of all ages and experience levels.

Age of Mythology is brought to life through a revolutionary new 3D engine developed by Ensemble Studios. Al Schilling, MacSoft’s general manager, announces Age of Mythology for Macintosh by saying, “Age of Mythology is a great successor to Age of Kings. Age of Mythology is truly an epic journey of heroism in a very beautiful 3D world.”
