A trailer for Age of Mythology Retold
Released in 2002 on PC, Age of Mythology put a twist on the classic formula ofage of empires, with playable cultures based on Greek, Egyptian, and Norse mythology. Players could create mythical units by spending a new resource called “favor”, which was obtained by praying or honoring a god of their choice. New cultures, the Atlanteans and the Chinese, were later added in expansions along with the ability to summon huge and destructive Titans.
Note that Age of Mythology benefited from a reissue called Extended Edition in 2014. This offered a number of updates, including support for Twitch and graphical improvements.
