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.
"Moving the development of Mytheon to our internal studio is a very positive move for the game because we have total creative control over the title and we can tailor Mytheon's content to the preferences and needs of the community that has already grown around it," said Jeff Lujan, CEO of UTV True Games.
Some of the core areas the UTV True Games development team is currently focusing on in the development of Mytheon include: balance and overall usefulness of all stones and stone types in the game, improving server performance, and camera controls, as well as improving guild functionality. During the upcoming beta, UTV True Games will gather valuable feedback for new features, ideas and more from its Closed Beta community and integrate these changes post-launch based on community preferences.
"First and foremost we are committed to improving the overall user experience for Mytheon," said UTV True Games' Director of Product Development, Peter Cesario. "We received great feedback from our beta testers regarding certain issues they were experiencing and optimizing these areas is our top goal as we head towards our official launch."
To reward loyal Beta testers from the previous Beta period, UTV True Games wants them to be among the first to experience the upcoming beta. The company will contact previous beta testers via email with exclusive keys and in-game rewards in the coming weeks leading up to Closed Beta period so these players can use their previously created accounts to have a first look at the improvements that have been made to the game.
UTV True Games will begin Closed Beta in late January 2011.
