Myst Online Beta Plans

Uru: Online Ages Beyond Myst to Begin Closed Beta Testing in January 2003 is the press release announcing that Uru: Online Ages Beyond Myst will be the title of the upcoming online Myst game, and that registration is currently underway to participate in the game's beta testing. Those interested can register for the beta on the game's official website, and here's a bit on the game, including the use of voice communication: "Uru will take advantage of broadband to deliver a continually updated, immersive environment and storyline, with content that grows, changes and evolves constantly. It will also be the first persistent world to support real-time voice communication. Uru is designed to appeal to a broad audience and enable players of all skill levels and interests to experience expansive ages of the Myst universe in a uniquely social environment. Playing their own avatars, hundreds of thousands of players will meet new people, all realistic impersonations of themselves, play games, solve mysteries and embark on a voyage of discovery with friends. Players will be able to customize their level of interaction with other players, choosing to play alone, with small groups of friends or in areas where they can meet new people." A batch of new screenshots and concept art accompany the announcement.

Yes now you too can click hotspots on stupidly rendered background images and turn your wildest dreams into a highly sophisticated game that requires alot of left and right turns. Now, as if the other mindless puzzles and annoying bullshit that so called "rpg's" try to feature nowadays was not enough, you can incessantly click levers, twist gears and do other mindless activities after this game has been thoroughly tested by a lab of monkeys descended from Project X.

What is so striking is the fact that the website is almost a carbon copy of what you will get. It is truly awesome how the site manages to capture the look and feel of playing this game. How did they do that!??? I mean, wow, click the book and you enter the online site of the Mystical Myst...ohh wow...

Myst: the worlds first online interactive....web page game thingy....Not only that we get the privelege, NAY let me say the honor, of using that quality UBI Soft game listing system, which we all know works so well for Ghost Recon.
"It will also be the first persistent world to support real-time voice communication."

Yes, I cant wait for this.

"Go left. No wait go right....no no no !!! RIGHT I said....awwwww fuck."

There is nothing like taking 1990 technology and repackaging it, charging people to buy it, and then hyping the hell out of it.
