From the grassy fields and eternal spring of Asgard to the fiery heart of Muspellheim, the world of Norse mythology envelopes players of Microsofts upcoming title Mythica. Using godlike powers, players can dispel droves of menacing monsters with a single blow or battle massive, monstrous beasts such as the Midgard Serpent.
Mythicas "Private Realms" technology provides story lines and environments that react to each players actions. Here players become the central characters in a heroic tale where actions have lasting consequences in their own persistent game world.
"When playing Mythica, players will feel like genuine Norse heroes on a personalized journey unique to them," said Adam Waalkes, studio manager for role-playing games at Microsoft Corp.
