Mythos Global, a free-to-play online action RPG similar to Diablo will have its open beta test beginning February 2, 2012, as announced by its developers Hanbitsoft and T3Fun.
For now the website is already up at http://mythos.t3fun.com/Home/Home.aspx and the dev team has prepared a month of fun activities for everyone. For every week in January, there will be new stories, exclusive interviews, mini-games, quizzes and more.
Mythos is an online action RPG, meaning it is probably not a full-fledged MMO but possibly more of a CORPG. Mythos features fast-paced role-playing and hack-and-slash combat in which players can choose from unique races and classes like the Bloodletter, Pyromancer and Gadgeteer. Players can look forward to an endless assortment of dungeons to conquer. The game allows for solo play, co-op with friends, or PvP.
The game is set in the land of Uld, a fantasy world arisen from the ashes of a dark and terrible war. Uld is a place where many different races live and where gods try their best to gain more power and influence among their followers. The constant conflict between the gods who seek order and the gods who seek chaos, led to a division among the races living in Uld. Following the ideals of reason and science are the humans, gremlins, satyrs, and Cyclops, while those who yearn for savagery and wars are the Discordians.
Mythos Re-Opens as Mythos Global
Mythos created a buzz in the gaming industry because of its veteran team of game developers from Flagship Studios. Some were ex-Blizzard North employees, including the original developers of Diablo. Flagship closed due to financial issues in 2008 but the intellectual property rights were picked up by Hanbitsoft and T3 Fun. Mythos has now been renamed Mythos Global.
