Ensemble Studios has announced the upcoming 10,000-player beta test for Age of Mythology, its 3D real-time strategy game scheduled for release this fall by Microsoft. The developer will release more information about the beta test this Monday, June 17.

Age of Mythology is a loosely related follow-up to Ensemble's popular Age of Empires strategy games. The game is built on a new 3D engine, and it will let players assume control of one of nine different civilizations inspired by ancient Greek, Norse, and Egyptian mythologies. In addition to the civilizations' basic units, players will have access to mythological creatures such as minotaurs and cyclopes, and they can also call on the forces of the gods to aid them in battle.

Age of Mythology is scheduled for release this fall. For more information, take a look at our in-depth previews of the game.
