Strategy fans of a certain age (yours truly included) will have fond memories when it comes to the Age of Empires series. Ensemble crafted a historically-driven RTS trilogy, but there was also a myth-inspired spin-off, Age of Mythology, and that too has a strong community of ardent fans.

The game was re-released in 2014 as an 'Extended Edition', but just like the mainline series, which is in the midst of a more comprehensive overhaul, it sounds like there are plans to give Mythology a proper makeover.

"It's great to see how much love there is for Age of Mythology, 'cause I love it too," Age of Empires creative director Adam Isgreen told Eurogamer. "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. Because I love Myth, we're not going to leave it behind, we'll figure out what to do with it then."

Isgreen also added that Age of Mythology: Extended Edition is getting patch "really soon," and that patch should fix some exploits and implement some fan feedback.
