Following legal disputes with original developer Petroglyph and the game being postponed since the first beta test, UTV has announced that the closed Beta test for the free to play online action RPG Mytheon will commence this month. UTV has confirmed that their Beijing Studio, who are now developing the game in-house, will be ready to kick the test live following further testing.
“Moving the development of Mytheon to our internal studio is a very positive move for the game because we have total creative control over the title and we can tailor Mytheon’s content to the preferences and needs of the community that has already grown around it,” said Jeff Lujan, CEO of UTV True Games.
“First and foremost we are committed to improving the overall user experience for Mytheon,” said UTV True Games’ Director of Product Development, Peter Cesario. “We received great feedback from our beta testers regarding certain issues they were experiencing and optimizing these areas is our top goal as we head towards our official launch.”
Previous testers are being invited back to the game as thanks for their patience and they will be mailed with a new exclusive beta key.
According to the information released by UTV, the development team is concentrating on balance issues, improving server performance, camera controls and guild functionality. UTV are looking for constructive feedback on the game so any changes can be implemented prior to the official game launch.
