Mytheon Launch Date Announced
The open beta of Mytheon started several weeks ago, but the 3D MMORPG / RTS blend hit some snags when the developers (Petroglyph) and publishers (UTV True Games) got into a legal quarrel. Fortunetly for gamers, the issue is now settled and the game is back on track.
The official release date has been set to July 13, 2010. UTV True Games also publishes the action MMORPG Warrior Epic but Mytheon looks like a much bigger project. If you haven’t tried the game yet, its still open to the public so go sign up!
