Mythica Preview

EDBIS has put together a preview of Mythica, Microsoft's upcoming MMORPG based on Norse mythology. Check it out:
Mythica's strength is its source material. Though it takes place in a fantasy world, it's not one that a bunch of game developers thought up. This world springs from the true mythology of real people. If Microsoft adds all the layers to the game that the myths possess, it will be grand indeed. Ragnarok, the final battle that destroyed the gods, will be included in the game, and it will be interesting to see how that plays out. It looks as well-polished as expected in a Microsoft game; hopefully it will have as few technical problems as their game Dungeon Siege, as well. It's too soon to tell if the gameplay will set Mythica apart from the pack; right now it doesn't look too different from other MMORPGs. Still, the setting and back story should make for a good gaming experience.
