Welcome to Mythica, the new massively multiplayer online game from
Microsoft Game Studios. Here you are no common adventurerin Mythica,
you play the role of an Immortal, a warrior spirit recruited by the
Norse gods themselves! Ascending to the afterlife, you'll venture across
multiple planes of existence, gaining new powers, fame or infamyeven
your own worshippers as you transcend immortality to achieve true godhood!
Fighting side-by-side with the Norse gods, you'll find yourself swept
into ultimate battle against the Fire Giants, holding them back from
laying waste to all creation.
- Traverse fantastic Norse realms
In Mythica, players journey across the Norse planes of existence, each
one offering its own storyline, treasures, and dangers. From hallowed
Asgard, travel to the mortal planes of Midgard and Vanaheim, into the
caverns of Nidavellir, through the frozen wastes of Jotunheim, and on
to the fiery heart of Muspellheim itself.
- One true hero
With new Private Realms technology, Mythica redefines the massively
multiplayer category, combining the richness of a single-player role-playing
game with the social experience of a massively multiplayer game. Players
can choose to adventure with a band of fellow players in huge public
areas populated by other players or enter a Private Realm to take on
handcrafted, individual quests with destructible environments, cinematics,
and engaging storylines.
- War with absolute power
Transcending the mortal life brings exceptional reward. Players are
imbued with immortal powers to conquer entire hordes of creatures, as
well as to face creatures of legend. However, true power only comes
when players combine their energies to perform Rites: massive group
magics capable of leveling a mountain.
- Pledge to a patron god
When choosing their class, players can align with the Norse gods themselves
and gain powers accordingly. Pledge to Thor to share in his berserker
strength, or to Loki for his trickster guile. Gain enough glory for
your patron god, and you may one day find yourself fighting alongside
him or her in battle!
- Build worship
Powers can also be earned by answering the prayers of mortal factions:
Human, Alfar (elves), or Dvergar (dwarves). Helping these mortals will
grant special skills and resourcesand even determine a player's
look over time using a collectible appearance system. Those that you
help may even become worshippersdo right by them and you can become
