Mythos is an online, action role-playing game that is free to download and free to play. Set in the land of Uld – a fantasy world arising from the ashes of an epoch-long war of darkness – players assume the roles of fantasy heroes as they explore, adventure, and quest through entirely randomized dungeons and environments. With an elegant point-and-click interface and an accessible "isometric" perspective, Mythos is poised to have near-universal appeal. The game allows thousands of players to interact within the same world while using mostly "instanced" dungeons to create unique gaming experiences suited for both solo and group-minded players.
As players journey into Mythos' ever-expanding universe, they select one of four races (Human, Satyr, Gremlin, or Cyclops) and opt to play as a particular character class using a huge variety of skills and items. Through heroic quests players search for gold, gems, armor, and weapons, while unlocking the secrets of Uld. Mythos presents a constantly expanding, continuously updated world where something new lurks around every corner.
In the weeks to come, there will be a content update for the hack´n´slash MMO Mythos including, among other things, a new level cap, additional PvP content, and the ‘Dungeon Master’ feature: a system in which record-setters are rewarded with useful in-game packages – and the honour of being called Dungeon Master.
Sure, you could cowardly dart from one floor to the next, brandishing your weapon only in self-defence and quickly grabbing the master key just to swipe the items from the treasure chest, and then flee as soon as possible. That’s one way to go through a dungeon. But there’s a much more challenging and rewarding alternative: Execute clever skill combos to eradicate monsters, use the dungeon layout to your advantage, and don’t stop slashing until you’re the last one standing. If you can manage all of that in record time, you will be rewarded handsomely.
The new feature will give players the option have their dungeon play timed: The clock starts as soon as the candidate sets foot in the dungeon and only comes to a stop when almost all traces of evil have been banished from within! Upon establishing a new record or beating an old one, the Dungeon Master will be rewarded with a bundle including in-game currency and rare items such as travel stones – in addition to the fame and glory that come with the territory. However, it’s not easy to stay at the top – records are soon broken, and it’s a constant struggle to maintain honour. Naturally, to keep things fair, only characters who meet the level requirement for the particular instance may become Dungeon Master. There are records to be set in all but some special high-level dungeons.
