UTV True Games has announced that the Mytheon closed beta is scheduled to begin today. The original closed beta shut down in early fall 2010 due to legal wrangling between then-developer Petroglyph Games and UTVTG. Since then, development has been taken over in-house at UTV True Games. Former closed beta testers will be treated to VIP perks and others are also being included in the CBT.
"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."
In addition to checking out all of the latest improvements and additions to the game, closed beta players will be able to Hourly in-game giveaways, leaderboard driven PvP matches, and mythology-based trivia with special prizes.
