First Myth III In-Game Shot Available
8:40 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
The fan site MythWolfAge.com has scored an anonymous donation which appears to be the very first screen shot of Myth III: The Wolf Age in-game action. While the previous shots were of character renderings with the new polygon engine, this is the first time we've had an clear look at the updated engine drawing the landscape as well. The image depicts a few of the game's fully 3D models moving through some underbrush on the new terrain. Here's a clip from MythWolfAge with a description:
The shot sports three Berserks, two Spearmen, and interesting terrain effects. There is grass in the open areas, and it would appear as if there is some kind of moldy substance on the rock in the rear left. Whether this is the result of impressive texturing (or impressive PhotoShop work) or the new underlying fine terrain mesh is yet to be seen.If the shot is proves to be genuine, it's a very impressive jump over the level of detail shown by the engine used in the previous two Myth titles. The plants and grass look very well done, and the characters look to be one with the surrounding environment. Head over to have a look now. And stay tuned as Gathering of Developers is expected to preview the game for E3 next week and will likely release more screen shots then.
IMG News: Meggs on New Myth 3 Publisher, Progress
Myth III is now going to be published for the Mac by MacSoft this November. In forum comments yesterday, programmer Andrew Meggs noted the shift should not affect the simultaneous release and they are in fact ahead of schedule at this point. Much more information on the title should be available at E3 later this month.
