IGG has revealed the back story behind the rebirth system in Myth War II.
With the release of Myth War II Online(http://mw2.igg.com/main.php), players will soon be learning about reaching new heights of power, long thought unattainable.

But there is a story behind this process, a story that hasn't been told in generations and is at risk of being lost forever.

This is a mission that will change your fate forever.

The time is now for warriors on Rarus Continent to once again raise arms and help the Gods defend the peace, and their homeland. Three of Hades’ elite commanders have arrived at the place where their weapons were sealed and have tried everything to remove the seals. The second War of the Gods is on the verge of breaking out. If they break the seals, the flames of war will once more engulf the world, plunging it into darkness and death...
