Uru Lives

GameTap announces that later this year they will revive Uru Live, the online Myst world created by Cyan that ceased operation over two years ago (story). Word is:
LOS ANGELES – E3 – (May 9, 2006) – “Uru Live” lives! GameTap, the broadband entertainment network from Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS, Inc.), is reviving the online foray of “Myst,” one of the most popular adventure series ever created. As part of GameTap’s bold new initiative, the “Uru Live” game and community will be available to GameTap subscribers later this year as part of their monthly subscription.

“Uru Live” is the online multiplayer version of “Uru: Ages Beyond Myst,” which was developed by Cyan Worlds. Extensively beta-tested in 2003, “Uru Live” spawned an avid community of players, many of whom have kept unofficial sites up and running ever since. With the advent of broadband gaming, there is a whole new medium and a ready audience for this revered title. Unlike its predecessors, the new worlds of “Uru Live” are dynamic and alive, making use of real-time 3D rather than still images to bring players together online to explore incredible new worlds. To keep “Uru Live” even more fresh and challenging, GameTap and Cyan will update the game with new episodic content on a regular basis.

I beta tested the game for almost a year. They wouldn't give the game to me for free, so I bought it so I could play multiplayer, then they don't do it. Uru had horrible network code, when it should be a lot more basic than most online games. I really don't see how they'll make a multiplayer puzzle game.
