has announced plans to release a Mac version of Age of Mythology, the popular real-time strategy game.
Age of Mythology draws on Norse, Greek and Egyptian mythology for inspiration. More than 40 mythological creatures populate a world in which heroes of men battle monsters and where gods intervene. the game features a new 3D engine that sports realistic lighting effects and more.
Age of Mythology was originally developed by Ensemble Studios and was published for the PC by Microsoft Game Studios — it’s part of the same franchise that MacSoft (under Destineer’s Bold brand) has brought to the Mac before with its conversion of Age of Empires II Gold Edition. And like that previous release, Westlake Interactive is handling the conversion.
MacSoft noted that the game will require Mac OS X, and is coming this October. Further system requirements will be announced later.
