It's been a long time coming, but today Frogster announced that Mythos has officially kicked off its open beta, allowing players to join in on all the hack'n'slash fun. The more than 100,000 registered players that didn't make it into the game's closed beta can now jump right in and join the fight until the game's official release on April 28th.
If you can make it to the higher levels fast enough, you'll have some additional content to cut your teeth on before launch when the team boosts the level cap from 27 to 50 and introduces the new snowy region of Umbral Peaks. Check out the press release after the break.
Mythos Open Beta Starts Today
Berlin, 12/04/2011: Today marks the start of the Mythos open beta, meaning everyone can now hack and slash their way through the game’s gruelling dungeons and hordes of ferocious beasts. All of the game servers were opened at midday, allowing previously registered players, well over 100,000 in number, to get stuck in immediately and allow those who weren’t able to get their hands on a closed beta key to finally enter the world of Uld. From now on the only key you’ll need to get your hands on is a dungeon’s master key.
The hack’n’slash MMO will continue to be fine tuned and optimised for localisation between now and the official release on the 28th of April. Also, high-level players will get some new meat to chew on in the next two weeks, and hopefully they like it chilled because the level cap is being raised from 27 to 50, opening the way for adventurers to enter the snowy region of Umbral Peaks.
But soon after that, things will start to heat up again as the game’s release draws ever closer In addition to the free download version, there will also be a box version available in stores at a suggested retail price of £9.99. In addition to getting some enticing bonuses, those who purchase the box can play Mythos two days before the release – on 26/04/2011.
