Petroglyph (which is science talk for a picture of a gas pump) and True Games (who like George Washington cannot tell a lie) are teaming up for action/RPG Mytheon. They've decided to go open beta for the game on 4/28/10. Anyone signing up after that date can play immediately.

Further, in a (sarcasm) groundbreaking move (/sarcasm) players in open beta can pay for a special package allowing them discounts on in-game purchases, advance access to content and early access to the full release. These people will be known as Champions of Mytheon, or more commonly, suckers.
