UTV True Games Announces Start of Mytheon Closed Beta

Posted Thu, Feb 03, 2011 by Martuk

After moving Mytheon development from Petroglyph to its internal studio in Beijing, UTV True Games has announced the restart of Mytheon's closed beta. Previous beta testers are being invited back to help test the game and receive some exclusive VIP treatment in the process. Beta testers will be treated to hourly in-game giveaways, leaderboard driven PvP matches and mythology-based trivia with special prizes.

"We're excited to share this legendary journey through ancient mythological worlds and larger-than-life characters with gamers," said Peter Cesario, Director of Product Development at UTV True Games. "Our focus with Mytheon is to deliver some of the most innovative and compelling content giving our players the ultimate action-RPG gameplay experience."

Players interested in testing the game can sign up via the Mytheon website. Check out the official press release for more details.

A chance meeting with Petroglyph Co-Founder Mike Legg made me feel a lot better about liking what I saw of Mytheon at GDC 2011. More than any other developer I’ve ever met, Mike personifies absolute, unwavering enthusiasm – like some happy marriage between a first-rate development mind, a smiley face, and an espresso bean. That’s part of the reason we were, subjectively speaking, so entirely galled when True Games Interactive sued Petroglyph to regain development rights to Mytheon just weeks before release. Since I’d played Mytheon months before the ugliness and found it (to my admittedly para-professional eye) far more stable and bug-free than most other games in a similar state of development, it appeared to me that this was publisher villainy of the ugliest kind… like corporate thieves using a loose contract as a tommy gun and threatened legal action as the getaway car.
