Mytheon, you say? Why yes, Mytheon!
According to the PR I received this morning, the “Free to Play” MMO officially launched today.
I like free.
After reading the PR (which you can see after the jump) I was intrigued enough to go to the website and have a look and attempt to find some videos to post, which you can also see after the jump. I have to say this looks…interesting. It looks sort of like an RTS/Diablo/Card (Stone) Collecting/MMO with a nice zoom out camera function. I have no earthly idea if this is any good or not but it looked promising enough to share with you guys so if you have some time grab it, try it, and let us know what you think.
It’s free people, come on. I’m going to try and fiddle with it later but I still have Chaos Space Marines to kill.
More after the jump.
UTV TRUE GAMES OFFICIALLY LAUNCHES MYTHEON
Austin, TEXAS-March 3rd, 2011–UTV True Games, an international publisher of multi-player online games, today announced it has officially launched its
highly-anticipated online multiplayer action RPG, Mytheon. The mythological action RPG with strategic gameplay is now live and can be downloaded and played for free at www.MytheonGame.com To celebrate the live launch, players can enjoy a 25% off coins sale on now!
Players are invited to enter a mythological world where they must battle
larger-than-life gods to define their own fate. Players assume
the role of “Stonecasters” where their only path to victory against the gods lies in mastering and casting magical stones. The Stones bestow on their caster the power to summon mythological creatures from legends past and unleash
dazzling spells on allies or opponents. The
much-anticipated game also features traditional RPG elements such as hunting, quests, customization and other methods of leveling.
“We’ve experienced a fantastic beta testing period and watched our community soar,” said Peter Cesario, Director of Product Development
at UTV True Games. “We’ve worked closely with our community to develop a top-notch completely immersive and challenging gaming
experience, and we are thrilled to deliver the ultimate in RPG gameplay.” (I don’t like editing the quotes, I mean let the man speak, you know?)
In addition to the
innovative “Power Stones” combat system, Mytheon will also feature rich, mythical lore, where every corner of the game is immersed in Greek mythology — from architecture and clothing to storyline and bosses — and three unique character classes: Warcaster, Elementalist, and Eidolon, where each class specializes in particular stone types. Lastly, Mytheon will host powerful PVP battles where players can face against each others stones in direct and objective-based PVP battles.
Now on to the video from MMOHut which was captured a while ago so I’m going to assume it looks better now. But this should give you an idea of what’s going on in the game.
