Redbana Resurrects Mythos

Originally developed as a test project for the online networking tech behind Hellgate: London, Flagship Studios’ free-to-play online action-RPG Mythos never made it out of beta as Hellgate bombed and Flagship dissolved last year, with Korean game company HanbitSoft and parent company T3 Entertainment stepping in to assume control of the IP. It was a shame, too, because from what I played of the beta Mythos was much better than Hellgate.

But all is not lost. Thanks to Redbana, the North American development and publishing branch of T3 Entertainment, Mythos is alive, well and set to be reborn in the US next year, with the game scheduled to enter closed beta soon. The game’s website has also been relaunched with a new trailer (see above) and an animated book loaded with background info about the story and world. Registration is also open for the closed beta, so don’t forget to sign up while you’re there.

“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.”
