Mythica Revealed

GameSpy.com Previews Mythica in the first of a two-day series revealing plans for an upcoming MMORPG from Microsoft that puts the player in the role of a Norse hero drawn out of his retirement in Valhalla and faced with a quest to achieve godhood. They reveal plans for races, realms, environments, how death for an immortal character is handled, and more. They plan on revealing more tomorrow, but in the meantime there's plenty of brand new stuff to reveal, even though they point out this project has actually already been in the works for a couple of years:
As with any MMO, Mythica is a huge undertaking, already in development for two years, there is a team of 30 actively working on the project. Wilson said each shard will support up to 3,000 concurrent players, and the number of shards will be determined by how many people sign up for the as-of-yet undetermined monthly fee. Wilson said they are already exploring a way that all the shards can be combined for the final epic battle.

pRey, thats understandable...When Ultima Online came out, it had lots of players to start with. Now they have higher level characters and have invested alot of time into them. This kind of helps underscore my point. If you have a level 30 or 40 character in UO, are you going to buy, and then pay per month, all these newer ones that are going to come out? Or are you going to stay with UO, because of all the friends you've met there and because you have already invested so much time to get a high level character? None have shut down recently, but trust me, some of these newer ones, in fact MOST of these new ones, are going to feel the crush.
