Ensemble Studios has released a new screenshot from its upcoming 3D real-time strategy game, Age of Mythology. The new screenshot displays Egyptian forces in a fortress fending off an attack from enemy units.

Age of Mythology is set in an ancient world in which mythical gods, heroes, and creatures join forces in a war for dominance. Players will control one of three civilizations--the ancient Greeks, Norse, or Egyptians--each of which has a different set of units, heroes, creatures, and gods. The game uses a proprietary 3D engine that supports dynamic lighting and shadows, translucent water, and other advanced effects.

Age of Mythology will be published by Microsoft in mid-2002. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game.
