First off, gotta thank Taipanicos for pointing this out to me, Cheers!

Quoted from Taipainicos:

According to the German GameStar Magazine ES has changed the way god powers work: for each age you advance you get one (1) god power (i.e. only one charge). When you use it, its gone! To balance this, you don't need any heroes to "cast" them, just one of your units has to see the target.
Heroes are now simply warriors with a bonus against MU. Greeks only have a few powerful of them (3-4), Norse can mass produce a weaker variant while Egyptians have none. Instead they're the only civ with priests which can convert enemy units.


"ARGH! its German, I can't read German"

So, naturally, like any loving AoM fan, I stuck this one into Bablefish! (Thatís altavistaís translation program if your wondering ). Here's what I came up with.


There are now 4 ages, not 3 like originally planned.

There are (roughly) 30 mythological creatures.

The "Great Hunt" god power, not only doubles animal stocks, but also things such as crocodiles!

Want to let your army invade inconspicuously? Then get rid of daylight! . I'm not sure the exact name of the God Power, but Bablefish says: "One minute long it becomes night in the play world including reduced building range of vision"

The Godpower "tornado" will swallow trees, take buildings with it, and whirl units in disorder .

The Greeks will have the largest selection of heroes to produce.

Modification: You don't need heroes any longer in order to increase "powerful god forces".

There will now be 36 God Powers [From Real]

The Phoenix will now burst into flames while attacking (flying petard?)From Real]

New Godpower, "Armistice" : If your hit by a surprise attack in Multiplayer. All fighting in the play world is stopped for one minute - allowing some breathing space, to produce a few quick units, or ask an ally for assistance


Bablefish didn't translate these ones too well, Any ideas anyone?

" If you possess enough resources and buildings for a branch in the next age, the agony of the God selection follows. Depending upon erkorenem member of the Olymp staff are available other creatures, hero and God forces. Lead designer Ian Fischer, who already cooperated in Age OF Empires 2: " you must decide and select the God, to that at the earliest your play style correspond. "

(This ones a god power) "Not to underestimate is also the tunnel, which interconnects two any positions. Prima for fixed feed from point A after B, but the practical passage can be destroyed by the enemy."


Oh - and did I mention all the NEW SCREENIES? . Whispers are taken straight from the site

A group of camel riders strengthens the Egyptian troop marching-up.

Mad 3D-Terrain: In the foreground the Egyptians are industriously busy with structure of settlement and gold . The Greek neighbours already structured a stately army and to dare itself up to them.

Ensemble's new 3D engine lets you change day and night as well as the weather. Here greeks and norse fight each other.

Much more beautfil than Empire Earth: The intermediate sequences

......Lets get it on! Greeks are defending there cities with Minotaurs and Hydras. The Egyptain agressor is using Anubis's. In the foreground a Scarab looks forward ready to crack together with the Siege units.

Sorry - Couldn't get this one .


*takes a deep breath*

translates to Intermediate Sequence

I come from under the hill , and under the hill and over the hills my paths have led. And through the air. I am he that walks unseen. I am the clue-finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly.I was chosen for the lucky number.
I am he that buries his friends alive and drowns them and draws them alive again from the water. I came from the end of a bag, but no bag went over me. I am the friend of bears and the guest of eagles. I am Ringwinner and Luckwearer; and I am Barrel-rider

I'll try being nicer if you'll try being smarter.

all i can say is "youz gets props for that one"

Excellent find.

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
