This year's upcoming E3 is looking to be a battle of the MMORPGs, and Microsoft will not be denied a place in that battle. Recently, the computing giant announced its own foray into the massively popular genre with Mythica.
Few details have been given about Mythica, other than the fact that it will have a Norse theme. Producer Matt Wilson stresses that Mythica will be a game which will successfully combine the social aspects of a MMORPG with the involved intimacy of a single player RPG. This will be accomplished through "Private Realms," areas separate from the game world, in which players can take on traditional RPG-like quests.
We will cover more details on Mythica as it progresses toward its 2004 release date.
