Mytheon releases its Egypt DLC (and it’s on sale)

You might recall that last month, Petroglyph Games brought back Mytheon, a cute isometric MMO that’s steeped in cultural mythology. You might also recall that the studio said that if all went well, it would dust off work that was done previously on a new Egyptian region and finish it up.

Well good news, everybody: Egypt is already here for the game. Even better news: It’s on sale as a pretty cheap DLC pack.

Egypt raises the level cap in Mytheon to 40 while adding a whopping 66 stones to the game (which is a lot better than it sounds to non-players). There’s also a new Thebes adventure area with nine new maps, a dueling instance, and a new PvP scenario.

Mytheon returns to life as a B2P title

Mytheon, a Greek mythology-themed MMO developed by Petroglyph, had an unusually short run as a live game, lasting only from March through July of 2011 before being shut down due to an insufficient playerbase. Now it’s back — and with a new business model.

Petroglyph has retooled the game and put it on Steam as a buy-to-play title (it’s currently on sale for just $4), with possible plans to finish up a chunk of Egyptian content for the future. Mytheon is notable for its isometric viewpoint and its use of a deck-building system for combat.
