Set in Europe at the time of the migration of nations (about 200-450 AD), "Against Rome" takes the player to that part of the continent that has not yet succumbed to the Roman Empire. This vast territory, which the Romans disparagingly called barbaricum, is the home of numerous primitive nations. Skirmishes, raids and plunderings were the order of the day for these barbarians and are, therefore, the great theme of this game. It was here that the forces rallied which would eventually cause the fall and decline of the mighty Roman Empire.

The career of a Greek hero from the lost city of Atlantis chronicled in the original Microsoft title "Age of Mythology", takes a new turn in the soon-to-be-released "Titans" expansion pack. A new faction, the Atlanteans, will have the ability to call upon Titans for divine intervention and cultural bonuses that will let it manipulate time and space. The Atlanteans will also have the intriguing ability to convert some of their regular units into powerful hero characters. "Titans" is scheduled for a September 2003 release.
