Age of Mythology emerged as a spin-off of Age of Empires and drew inspiration from Greek, Egyptian and Norse mythologies rather than historical events. It focused more on combat and allowed players to summon gods for epic battles.
The new game was announced as part of the broadcast celebrating 25 years of the Age of Empires franchise. In addition to Age of Mythology Retold, Microsoft also announced that Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition and Age of Empires IV will be coming to Xbox and xCloud consoles in 2023, confirming the rumors.
According to Emma Bridle of World’s Edge, players will be able to play the titles using keyboard and mouse, in addition to bringing crossplay between all platforms. With Xbox Cloud Gaming support, you will be able to continue your progress even away from your PC or Xbox console.
