The Rebirth of MythosFlagship's final project handed off to Redbana.12.03.09 - 9:46 PM
Remember Flagship Studios? Headed up by Bill Roper, creators of the all-too-disappointing Hellgate: London
? They had also created a budget-friendly Online RPG for the PC called Mythos
. However, due to Flagship's financial status, it seemed the game died before it ever had a chance.
Now, Redbana (under HanbitSoft and T3 Entertainment) is giving it that chance it deserved. Check out the YouTube video below, and scroll down even further for the full press release.
Redbana US Corporation today announced plans to publish Mythos in North America. T3 Entertainment's North American development and publishing arm, Redbana will bring the long-awaited online action RPG to US audiences, expanding the company's offering of premier free-to-play online games. Fans are encouraged to check out new additions to the game at the official teaser site: www.mythos.com.
The newly updated Mythos website features a brand new teaser trailer with never before seen footage of new content. Visitors can also stay updated on Mythos' development with a calendar of upcoming announcements and an animated book that describes some of the newly added back-story. Fans of Mythos can still sign up for the official newsletter, with more information about the upcoming North American closed beta, explore concept art and new features, which will be added periodically leading up to the game's launch.
"We're privileged to be able to take the helm of this ambitious and highly-regarded project," said Young Rok Park, CEO of Redbana. "We launched Redbana with Audition, and are now diversifying our offering with Mythos. Our vision is to deliver a diverse selection of high quality games to the North American market."
In 2008, the Mythos beta was closed to the disappointment of the game's many fans. HanbitSoft acquired the intellectual property and parent company T3 Entertainment resumed development, with the game now in closed beta in South Korea. Redbana will oversee the launch and operations for the title in North America.
