Giving a whole new aspect to the strategy element of Myth II, Bungie.net pointed us towards a new chess mod available for the this now-classic RTS from Bungie. MythCHESS 1.0 has both Myth and actual chess units included, and the gameplay is set to compy with actual chess rules -- with a Myth II twist, of course. Some of the other cool features include:
Instant Pawnswapping (Pawns are auotmatically traded for the highest point piece your opponent has...) Scripted Turntaking (At the Legendary Difficulty level, players are forced to take turns...) Retextured Models (Used to indicate whose turn it is, they light up!) New Sounds sanctioned by MacSoft (Thanks MacSoft!) Easter Eggs (Cheering Peasents, dwarfs playing chess against each other...) New Scenery! (Hehe, look closely, you may see it...) New Units! (The chess pieces are very cool...)Head over to the Mill now to grab the 2.4 MB download. And prepare for a more 'civilized' multiplayer Myth II -- though we are pretty sure things still explode, occasionally.
