Mytheon is an online micro transaction game that uniquely combines the best elements of action, strategy and RPG game-play with a heavy emphasis on collectability and combat. This visually stunning title is set within a fantasy universe steeped in unique mythologies from across the globe. Players will first embark on a rousing journey through the extensive lore of ancient Greece; with ongoing expansions to follow that will delve into exotic mythologies from the far-flung corners of history. With real-time combat and extensive customization features, Mytheon will offer infinite replayability through group, PVP and solo play as well as an integrated social networking feature set.
Using some of the best and most familiar mechanics from traditional collectible card games, players will earn, buy, trade and collect stones they can assemble similar to deck-building among a thriving online community. Several compelling features have been added to create fast, visually stunning 3D combat sequences with a deep layer of strategy beneath it. In the game, players will collect and customize a vast assortment of "Power Stones" which are used to conjure devastating spells and summon faithful minions in climactic battles against monsters and other players. Mytheon will offer three distinct character classes, each specializing in a specific "Power Stone" type, such as summoning or healing.
The "Champions of Mytheon" package" will go on sale in early May and will offer players a chance to secure their exclusive place in the Mytheon community. The package is limited to the first 2,000 lucky players and will contain items such as coins, vitality elixirs, stone bundles, limited-edition Mytheon shirts and autographed posters, early access to new content before it officially releases, the opportunity to display the player's real name in the Mytheon game credits under "Champions of Mytheon", and much more.
To kick off the open beta test, True Games will host a special three day event where players can win fabulous prizes including an Alienware M17x laptop, iPods, iTunes cards and more!
Beginning today and continuing through Friday, players can participate in PVP and instance-based events. Anyone who logs into the game during that time is automatically entered into the contest. The event will encourage players to start at Echidna's Swamp, where developers and community leaders will guide them through the game to more difficult locations. The first-place winner via random drawing will receive an Alienware M17x laptop complete with Mytheon themed skins, wallpapers and icons. Seven lucky second-place winners will take home an 8GB iPod Touch, and 100 fans will receive $10.00 iTunes gift cards.
