The last time we played Mythos it was 2007. The release of Hellgate: London was right around the corner, and developer Flagship Studios seemed to be in great shape. Unfortunately, after a series of layoffs and debt owed by the studio formed mostly by ex-Blizzard employees, the Diablo-esque online dungeon crawler was put on hold. However, since the intellectual property rights were acquired by South Korean publisher HanbitSoft, development has resumed. With preparations for Mythos' closed beta nearing completion, Flagship Studios is now accepting sign-ups for players who want to test-drive the game. Check out the new trailer announcing the upcoming closed beta program inside...

Theoretically, the MMO should be the epitome of this immersive, connective, community gaming revolution we keep hearing about. In practice though, it's often impenetrable, exclusory, or just plain dull. We cut out the crap and present our vision of a brave new online world.
Casual gaming and the MMORPG. Two concepts that can separately send a none-more-cold shudder of dread down the traditional gamers spine. Combining the two then, should logically create a most hideous gestahl beast of unimaginable combined wrong, as if Ray had chosen Celine Dion for Gozers form instead of Mr. Staypuft at the end of Ghostbusters. Rather, having had a look at Flagship Studios Mythos yesterday, weve got a feeling that the two pariahs of gaming could actually cancel each other out,
Our penchant for dungeon crawlers helped us settle into a hypnotic trance as we left-clicked our way towards level-ups and loot when we sampled an early build of Flagship Studios' free-to-play MMO, Mythos. It was fun, almost too fun for a free game. But it really wasn't supposed to be this way. Developed with the same tools, graphics engine, database needs, and most of the same code as Flagship's much anticipated Hellgate: London, Mythos was originally created to help make sure Hellgate's
