MacSoft's new real-time strategy title Age of Mythology will ship from November 14.

The English version of the title is expected to reach European gamers by "the following week", the company said.

The game takes players into a time when heroes battled legendary creatures – and each other. It's a time of alliances, deities and armed conflict. The title is the sequel to the successful Age of Empires RTS game, and is in 3D, rather than the preceding title’s 2D.

Players lead one of nine civilizations, building trade routes, settlements and armies as they advance through four ages. They can field mythological creatures, and call upon their gods for help.

The game requires at least a 450MHz processor, 256MB RAM, a 16MB video card and OS X 10.2.6 or later.
