The first expansion to the legendary RTS in over a decade brings tons of new content, including a new civilization, a fully voice-acted campaign (English), new maps, and 12 new gods drawn from the robust Chinese pantheon! Hunt for dragons in the faraway mystical lands of China, fight demons and command good spirits on your side. Or would you rather command the demons? Fight for the grace of the Three Sovereigns, separate Yin from Yang and banish your enemies to the tenth layer of Hell.
A new Civilization enters the game… The Chinese!
- Master Tacticians: Between their War Academy tech, morale-boosting generals, and units with unexpected counters, the Chinese have no problem dominating the battlefield!
- Wololo arrives in Age of Mythology! The beloved monk from Age of Empires II finally gets its Age of Mythology counterpart in the monk hero unit, which can convert enemy units and heal friendly ones.
- New Campaign (fully voice-acted in English): With Yin and Yang shattered and China in chaos, General Jiao-Long must find a way to restore Yin and Yang and bring peace to the empire.
3 Major Gods—The Three Sovereigns

- Nü Wa, The Earthly Sovereign: Co-creator of humanity and sister of Fu Xi, Nü Wa brings unparalleled prosperity by boosting villagers and the economy.
- Shennong, The Human Sovereign: The Emperor of the Five Grains is credited with many agricultural inventions, and rains death with mighty siege weapons if his monks fail to convert the foe.
