Age of Mythology’s long-awaited expansion Tale of the Dragon is out now

Tale of the Dragon

I wrote about Age of Mythology getting an expansion 13 years after its original release some time ago, and now it’s out. Funny how that works, huh?

If you look back on the Age of Empire games fondly, you’ll probably enjoy the rest of the titles in our picks of the best strategy games on PC.

Age of Mythology’s expansion, Tale of the Dragon, is £6.99 on Steam, but it’s getting a mixed response so far. According to the Steam reviews, it’s more of a mod than expansion, and it also reuses assets from over a decade ago.

Some reviews say the expansion is broken, buggy, and basically a bit of a mess. Even many of the positive reviews note its flaws, so it might be worth holding off for a while before buying it. Good things come to those who wait, eh?

To be fair, you’ve already waited over a decade, so what’s a while more? Tale of the Dragon introduces a new civilisation, the Chinese, along with their own 12 god pantheon and a full campaign, when it works properly.

If you do decide to pick up the expansion despite the risk, it’s worth noting that you need the base game for it to work.
