Myst Online To Return This Year
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 8 comments

A recent update on the Myst Online forums revealed the status of MORE, the Myst Online: Rerestoration Experiment. MORE will utilize new servers to once again bring the game back to the fans. Myst Online was recently dropped from the GameTap lineup, adding another chapter to the game's troubled saga.

The current focus is to get the servers back online and subscribers back in the game (in other words, launched!) before the end of the year. As things get done, we will have a more accurate date. Right now it is a very small development team that is working on MORE. There are two of us ( Randy (not Rand) and myself) and a handful of other people lending a hand when they can.
* A number of things are done, such as getting the build and internal testing machine running again, upgrading Oracle to 11g and a whole bunch a little details like removing the GameTap logo movie.
* Creating the account system including the web interface is in process. This will allow users to create and access their MORE accounts. And the MORE server is being modified to do its user authentication against this new billing system. A way to do subscription gifting is also being implemented.
