View the full stream here!

Earlier today the first video previous of the upcoming Age of Mythology: Tale of the Dragon expansion pack was released.

What have we learned?
  • Expected release date is January 2016
  • AoM:EE on steam required to play
  • Full new Chinese civilisation
  • Skybox will be working with the ForgottenEmpires team
  • New art including terrain, buildings and trees
  • New god powers including 'call to arms' which works like the existing Great Hunt god power, but for armies.
  • The new gods are named Shennong, Fu Xi and Nu Wa
  • Expert supremacy players from AoMH have been consulted on game balance!
  • New main menu music with a Chinese theme remix on the original AoM main menu score.
  • Balance changes promised to all current civilisations.
  • The Chinese generate favor by building gardens, which can also generate other resources.
  • Three heroes are confirmed for the Chinese civilisation: Monks that can convert, Generals that may have an Arkantos style morale boost and Immortals, with an unknown feature.
  • The Chinese have one drop off site for all resources.
  • New campaign with voice acting. It seems that Arkantos and Kastor will not feature in this new story. It has been confirmed that there will be new characters for the campaign.
  • Chinese junk ships will feature as naval units - new ship types have been suggested.
  • Dragons, Pandas, Monkey King, Monks, Mounted archers, Cho ko nu archers, White tiger (mythic age unit) and Terracotta warriors (classical age myth unit that does bonus damage on death) are among the new units

    Cysion already told me that the campaign is entirely new, but there will be references to the old campaigns.

    Immortals from AoEO could fight both ranged and melee. Maybe it's something similar.

    Who knows?

    Generals might actually be a "global hero" but I'm most likely wrong.

    Their Monks should generate favor. You press a button on the monk and they sit down to meditate and gain favor, and while they're gaining favor you can't use them.

    I hope Skybox manage to do better at AoM than they did at AoK. That game is still borderline unplayble.

    I love how every civilization is getting buffed but Atties are getting gutted losing medium archers for free is so big. I actually like the changes though because i am so sick of seeing oranos, and Gaia is a bit better relative to the other atties cuz that Leto buff with the volcanic forge tech upgrade makes him more interesting... would like to have seen cheaper autos too to make them more cost efficient like prometheans :P

    Cheaper heroes are nice as well but overall losing the medium archers but tbh I think atty villagers should get +12% bonus from handaxe/pickaxe gathering upgrades since they dont get the drop off bonus from it and it will help their lategame eco
