Frogster's Mythos Europe has officially moved from closed beta to open beta as of today. Head on over to the official website or read on for the press release.
Mythos Open Beta Starts Today
Berlin, 12/04/2011: Today marks the start of the Mythos open beta, meaning everyone can now hack and slash their way through the game's gruelling dungeons and hordes of ferocious beasts. All of the game servers were opened at midday, allowing previously registered players, well over 100,000 in number, to get stuck in immediately and allow those who weren't able to get their hands on a closed beta key to finally enter the world of Uld. From now on the only key you'll need to get your hands on is a dungeon's master key.
The hack'n'slash MMO will continue to be fine tuned and optimised for localisation between now and the official release on the 28th of April. Also, high-level players will get some new meat to chew on in the next two weeks, and hopefully they like it chilled because the level cap is being raised from 27 to 50, opening the way for adventurers to enter the snowy region of Umbral Peaks.
But soon after that, things will start to heat up again as the game's release draws ever closer In addition to the free download version, there will also be a box version available in stores at a suggested retail price of £9.99. In addition to getting some enticing bonuses, those who purchase the box can play Mythos two days before the release on 26/04/2011.
The coveted box version with item package and exclusive pet can already be pre-ordered here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Deep-Silver-Mythos-PC-DVD/dp/B004RSUMMC/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1300176860&sr=8-15
Mythos brings the highly successful (Hack-and-Slash) formula to an action-packed online role-playing game. Mythos offers players a virtual fantasy world based on a comic book-style atmosphere where they hunt countless monsters in a variety of dungeons. Players may also compete with each other in gripping PvP battles. There is a choice of four races and three character classes which can be heavily customised. Mythos was originally developed by Flagship Studios and since 2009 has been further continued and prepared for its release in Europe by the Korean publisher, HanbitSoft. Frogster will publish the game in five language versions English, German, French, Polish and Turkish. The action-packed online game hits retail stores on 26th April 2011, and will be available online on 28th April 2011.
