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.

UTV True Games and Petroglyph have reached a mutual agreement to resolve pending litigation issues related to the development of their game, Mytheon, which is currently in open beta. As part of the resolution of litigation issues, both companies are fully committed to bringing Mytheon to market as a truly enjoyable and unique gameplay experience.

"We are very pleased to be making this announcement," said Jeff Lujan, Founder and CEO of UTV True Games. "It was important for us to work out these issues and our management teams worked closely together to resolve our differences. Now we can focus 100% on Mytheon and its potential to be one of the best and unique entertainment experiences available online."

Chuck Kroegel, General Manager and CEO of Petroglyph continued, "From the beginning, we have been committed to creating a critically and commercially successful online game that brings something fresh to this space. Despite the fact that neither company acknowledged or admitted any wrongdoing, both companies recognized this mutual agreement as the right step, especially for the players with the official release of Mytheon to the world this summer. We've received a great deal of positive feedback on the game, from both the media and the community, and we encourage online gaming fans to jump into the ongoing open beta test and experience Mytheon's unique gameplay and amazing mythological world."
