'Myst V: End of Ages' Goes Gold

by Rainier on Sept. 8, 2005 @ 10:33 a.m. PDT

Picking up immediately where the original Myst ended, players are presented the privilege, challenge and responsibility of restoring the lost empire of the D'niTM – an ancient civilisation of people who thrived for thousands of years but later met with a great catastrophe. Like each previous Myst title, Myst V: End of Ages advances the graphical beauty and detail of its worlds with a fully immersive 3D environment. Cyan carefully crafted and combined elements of adventure, puzzles, storyline and gameplay innovation creating a worthy ending to the one game to which millions will forever compare any adventure title – Myst.

Rand Miller, co-creator of Myst and founder of Cyan Worlds, and his Spokane-based development team have brought the development of the final episode and storyline to a close in its most dramatic and immersive experience to date, with photorealistic 3D scenes, innovative new slate and in-game help systems, and intricate puzzles with depth like no adventure game before. The release of the game also coincides with the 12th anniversary of the franchise's debut.

Myst V: End of Ages has an ESRB rating of "E" (Everyone) and a suggested retail price of $49.99 for the PC-CD edition and $59.99 for the Limited Edition.
