This ground-breaking series of fantasy games were first created by Bungie Software in 1997 with the release of Myth: The Fallen Lords. This was followed by Myth II: Soulblighter. After Bungie‚s acquisition by Microsoft, the series was taken over by Take 2 Interactive with the release of the prequel Myth III: The Wolf Age.
While featuring never-before seen levels of play technically, much of the success of the games was also due to the depth and detail of the fantasy world in which the games take place. Possessing a flavor and level of authenticity similar to Tolkien‚s Middle-Earth, the Myth Universe also included it‚s own unique storylines, histories and denizens.
Today, the Myth community is largely served online by PlayMyth.net. MythTales.com seeks to add a new dimension to the Myth universe by expanding on the myths themselves.
