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.

Motor City Online was shut down. And uhhh that other online battle war game. That was just HORRIBLE! Those are a couple games shut down.

To the comment about when are we the developers going to realize mmorpg is going bled dry of gamers becuase of so many games. I say, we know its possible. But the big thing is, its a money machine right now. And only a few games have been successfull enough to take clients from eq and uo. And when you think about it, there chance for more. There is always going to be another one that another player wants to try, and ends up liking. Thats just my opinion. Ive played em all pretty much, and I played them all for a couple years a peice.
