After battling through the Age of Empires
, it is time to go deeper into the history of mankind, and play in the Ancient cities of the true gods.
Choose your scenario from three, the ancient Greeks, the Norse or the Egyptians, and build your new world into a true kingdom fitting for the Gods that you follow. But be wary of the evil that lives around your kingdom, as they wish to destroy you and your God.
Many elements of the Age of Empires
series feature here, including the many economic options, an epic battle system and random maps. New to the series is a full 3D graphics engine, increasing the level of detail to include certain weather effects and the ability to play during any time of the day or night.
During battle, you have the ability to not only lead an army full of hundreds of warriors and mythological creatures of all types, but you can also call on your God to lend a helping hand for a short period of time.
Multiplayer maps are also included, allowing all-on-all or ally battles.
