'The Mummy Online' Accepting Closed Beta Sign-ups - Screens

by Rainier on Nov. 15, 2011 @ 7:12 p.m. PST

In The Mummy Online, a free-to-play Action-RPG MMO game with adventure elements inspired by the films, players will take on heroic roles as adventure seekers with various talents and skills that will allow their characters to be unique within the MMO virtual world.

With treasure and fortune at stake, this is an epic battle worth fighting.  The Mummy Online is the new, free-to-play action-adventure RPG inspired by the blockbuster movie franchise, challenging you to fight in this fun, cooperative and fast-paced new 3D isometric game.  Following the events portrayed in The Mummy film franchise, mummies, and monsters have been released into the lands.  You assume the role of a Raider: on the hunt for riches and treasure or a Cultist: seeking mastery over dark powers.

“We’re excited to get The Mummy Online into the hands of the fans,” said Arash Amini, Producer, Bigpoint. “As is the case with our entire portfolio of games, which can be improved and optimized on the fly, community feedback will be critical to this project’s success.”

Participants interested in joining The Mummy Online’s exclusive closed beta can register for access.  Once in-game, players will fight their way through a single-player tutorial level before selecting their allegiance (Raider or Cultist) and class (Gunslinger/Assassin, Brawler/Enforcer, or Scholar/Priest).  As players gain experience through both PvE and PvP gameplay, they will be able to learn new skills, unravel special capabilities, and purchase more powerful equipment.


Battle across Cinematic Environments

Based on the existing terrain of Egypt, players can explore the map of Amarna with several PvE regions that include the Dunes, River, Maze, and Rocky Fields.  Here, players will confront a range of monsters, including several types of scarabs, scorpions, pygmies, Anubis warriors, and mummies.  Within the PvP areas of the Tomb, Oasis, and Ruins, players can battle against players of opposing allegiances and capture ancient obelisks to dominate the playing field.

With the closed beta expected to last several weeks, Bigpoint will unlock player accounts in waves to ensure game stability and performance.  At the conclusion of the closed beta period, Bigpoint will review all feedback, optimize virtually every aspect of the game, and ready The Mummy Online for the official open beta launch.

Players are encouraged to follow the closed beta’s progress and provide input through the community forum.

The Mummy film franchise has been an entertainment powerhouse taking its characters across the world to face some of archeology's greatest mysteries and leading to exciting film sequels, theme park attractions, video games and more.
