Angela Game has recently announced that the closed beta for their upcoming multiplayer war sandbox game Myth of Empires will begin on October 2nd and will last until October 10th with registration now open on the game's official Steam page. In Myth of Empires players will have a high degree of freedom as they fight to survive and earn their place in a world that's been torn apart by war. Players will build fortresses, lead armies in massive battles, siege enemy cities, and establish their own empires.
Some of the key features in the beta test include:
Brave an unforgiving world filled with bandits, wild animals, and hostile players. Stave off hunger with meat collected through hunting, and collect resources from the world to build your fort.
Engage enemies in intense, tactical combat. Control the direction of your strikes to maximize their impact and damage.
Craft dozens of different kinds of weapons and armor of different tiers to help you in battle. Make swords, spears, halberds, axes, throwing weapons, crossbows, bows, shields, and more!
Construct your very own customized structures piece by piece, and build siege weapons such including ballistas, catapults, trebuchets and siege ladders to wreak havoc upon enemy fortresses.
Recruit NPCs through peaceful means or by force and have them collect resources, craft items, hunt, or fight alongside you. Tame horses that you can ride into battle, or breed them to make horses with attributes more suited to your needs.
A robust guild system allows players to form factions with their friends. Work together to fend off enemy attacks, conquer your server, and reign supreme!
New gameplay and content: County, province, and fortress siege battles, as well as improved voice-chat, a new trade system, and character voices.
New environments: Snowy mountains, desert, swamps, caves, and an all-new weather system.
New craftables: New weapons, armour, buildings, recipes, crops, carts, and more.
