Petroglyph and True Games have released a set of screenshots detailing the various environments found in the upcoming online action RPG Mytheon. Let's take a tour of Colchis, The Dominion of Hades and The Shattered Isle.
Mytheon is an online PC game that combines action RPG gameplay with an element of collectable strategy games. Players take on mythical gods using collectable Power Stones, which transform into creatures, buildings, and spells. Think of it as a collectable card strategy game with the cards replaced with stones, and you get the picture.
Browse the gallery below for background information on some of the game's scenic locales.
The island features a diverse geography from craggy, impassable cliffs to rolling meadows and gardens. While Amphitrite resides in the peaceful Nereid's Garden where the sparkling ponds and fountains reflect the tranquillity of the sea, Triton presides over his namesake cove amidst the foam and crashing surf. Within the Temple of Poseidon, the vengeful sea god prepares his minions for the coming battle with mankind.
The Dominion of Hades is the epicentre of Hades' power in the Underworld. From this dark, luxurious palace, Hades and his queen, Persephone, rule the Underworld without mercy.
Remnants of a city lie just beyond the field's borders, long abandoned by its inhabitants and now overrun with diabolical beasts. What was once a thriving marketplace, surrounded by the homes of the townspeople, now lies uninhabited.
Gloomy corridors and cavernous halls exude an eerie sense of foreboding to those who would risk entry within. Divided into three great regions — the Hall of the Dead, the Garden of the Furies and the Court of Hades — Stonecasters must embark deep into this fiery stronghold and face perilous legions of undead monsters in order to confront Hades himself, his power enhanced within his own domain.
The Shattered Isle is home to Poseidon, the supreme ruler of oceans and earthquakes. The isle is also home to Amphitrite, Poseidon's beloved wife, and their son, Triton. Together, the family forms a triad symbolic of the ocean's tranquillity, treachery and unrelenting dominion. These qualities are reflected in the domains over which they preside.
Since their victory over the dragon, the sacred grove has become infiltrated with fierce warriors of Ares, the god of war. The dusty furrows of the Fallow Field are dotted with the skeletal remains of dead trees; now home to carrion creatures that prey upon the unwary.
The Dominion of Hades is a monument to death and destruction. Home to the immortal god of earthly wealth — Hades, lord of the dead, rules his realm with an iron fist.
The skeletal remains of past invaders lie half-buried in the sands surrounding crumbling columns and scarred boulders. Waterfalls cascade down stone ledges, casting a fine spray that coats the rocky surfaces and foliage.
Players will travel to the distant land of Colchis, once home to the famed Golden Fleece, now protecting Argos. Two distinct regions form the land of Colchis — the cast Fallow Field and the Grove of Ares. Jason and his Argonauts braved many dangers there to claim their prize, including an epic battle against the Colchian Dragon who guarded the fleece.
