Frogster is also releasing a new video, showcasing in-game scenes for the revamped Mythos for the first time. Gamers will be shown the visual transformation of the online RPG, which was taken over by the Korean software company HanbitSoft in 2009 after the closure of the original developers. As well as other improvements, the trailers show three game zones completed during this developing period: Evergreen Pasture, Jagged Canyons and Crystal Peaks. Whether lush, spring pastures, desert terrain or a winter landscape, each region provides a new backdrop, along with the local dungeons and monstrous foes. Not only have the zones received a visual overhaul, they have also been expanded and the players' (hubs) have been totally redesigned. Gamers can now move their character through the game world in the classic RPG 3D view, as well as in the classic isometric perspective from the previous version.
Please visit the official website www.Mythos-Europe.com for more information on the game and the in-game trailer.
