Petroglyph’s Upcoming Game: Mytheon

February 26, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Petroglyph, the creator of Star Wars Empire At War and Universe At War: Earth Assault, are currently developing a game called Mytheon, which they claim will combine elements of the Action, RTS (real time strategy) and MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game) genres. The company have decided to base their game on popular and widely known Greek mythology, as this presents a solid backbone and intriguing world for the backdrop of their ambitious project.

The game revolves around a Power Stone system, which like in other strategy games can be manipulated to provide certain things or carry out certain actions. For example, some can be used to summon mystical powers, whilst others are orientated towards building and laying foundations. Differing factions and classes of people have access to different stones, and thus a diverse and challenging world is set.

As is common in an MMORPG, in Mytheon you travel to and from specific areas and meet other people. In certain areas you can challenge people to PVP (player versus player) combat. Many PVP events will take place in specific areas, such as arenas. With a rich and immersive storyline, Mytheon promises to keep players hooked with a range of specific game events and sidequests. The open ended story is set to receive periodic updates, a highly important factor in an age where many MMORPGs are simply left dead in the water whilst players continue to fork out subscription fees. Mytheon will apparently be free to play, but will also feature microtransaction options, wherein players can opt to buy additional content such as clothing and key items.

Petroglyph are keeping any further details close to their chest, but plan for a release of late 2009. Speculation and interest in this title is already high, so it will be interesting to see whether Mytheon will make good on what it promises.
