Announced last year, there has not been that much in the way of info about the free to play MMO based on The Mummy movies but Bigpoint has confirmed more details today.
Last June, Bigpoint about The Mummy and today they have released a new teaser trailer, a couple of shots and a few more details on what to expect.
The game is set in Amarna on the southern tip of the Nile, the homeland to priests and tribes who practice the dangerous art of sorcery and is the birthplace of the region’s most legendary sorceress Masika. Amarna is a hotbed of conflict with pharaohs attempting to control all who hold wisdom of the ancient worlds.

The Oasis: Hidden by mountains, the oasis is a lush environment to the northeast of Amarna. Ramesses – the 19th Dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh – used this site to build a pyramid at its core. Here, small bands of pygmy tribes were instructed to protect one of Ramsses most coveted magical artifacts for all eternity – the “Stones of Rancor.”
The Tomb: Deep in the mountains in the northwest of Amarna, the Tomb was a burial site for the venomous serpent knives. These weapons were handed down to Masika as the instrument to bring forth Ramesses’ death. To protect these sacred artifacts, deadly scarabs were placed into the Tomb’s walls along with many local tribes people who were mummified and encapsulated in statues.
The Ruins: In the northeast region of Amarna, close to the Nile, this site was built on an ancient Scarab feeding ground. Many have prayed to the god Anubis for protection on this land, and to destroy any intruder who tries to claim the sacred vases containing the organs of Masika.
The game is being developed by Bigpoint in San Fancisco and they expect to have it shipped this autumn. More details are expected soon.
