Mytheon has suffered its share of bumps during development with a few delays and a lawsuit against the original developer Petroglyph. But after moving the game's development to its internal studio in Beijing, UTV True Games has patched up and polished Mytheon into shipping state. In a press release made earlier today, UTV True Games announced that the war with the gods has begun with the official launch of Mytheon.

Mytheon allows players to assume the role of a "Stonecaster" to do battle against ancient mythological gods. The game can be downloaded and played for free through the official Mytheon website. To celebrate the launch, UTV True Games has enabled a 25% discount sale for Mytheon Coins, which can be used to purchase in-game items. Check out the official press release below for more details.


UTV TRUE GAMES OFFICIALLY LAUNCHES MYTHEON

Classic Mythology Comes To Life As Players Challenge Legendary Gods In This Multiplayer/Action RPG With Strategic Gameplay 

Austin, TEXAS-March 3rd, 2011-UTV True Games, an international publisher of multi-player online games, today announced it has officially launched its highly-anticipated online multiplayer action RPG, Mytheon.  The mythological action RPG with strategic gameplay is now live and can be downloaded and played for free at www.MytheonGame.com  To celebrate the live launch, players can enjoy a 25% off coins sale on now!

Players are invited to enter a mythological world where they must battle larger-than-life gods to define their own fate.  Players assume the role of "Stonecasters" where their only path to victory against the gods lies in mastering and casting magical stones. The Stones bestow on their caster the power to summon mythological creatures from legends past and unleash dazzling spells on allies or opponents.  The much-anticipated game also features traditional RPG elements such as hunting, quests, customization and other methods of leveling. 

"We've experienced a fantastic beta testing period and watched our community soar," said Peter Cesario, Director of Product Development at UTV True Games.  "We've worked closely with our community to develop a top-notch completely immersive and challenging gaming experience, and we are thrilled to deliver the ultimate in RPG gameplay." 

In addition to the innovative "Power Stones" combat system, Mytheon will also feature rich, mythical lore, where every corner of the game is immersed in Greek mythology - from architecture and clothing to storyline and bosses - and three unique character classes: Warcaster, Elementalist, and Eidolon, where each class specializes in particular stone types.  Lastly, Mytheon will host powerful PVP battles where players can face against each other's stones in direct and objective-based PVP battles!

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.
