Hands-on With Myst V
8:55 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

In a recent preview Gamespot gave a sneak peak at the upcoming Myst V: End of Ages. The final chapter in the Myst series, the game will mark the first time the main series has stepped away from its 2D roots and entered a fully 3D world. Cyan Worlds, the original creators of Myst, will be back to oversee the conclusion of the saga.

Here's a bit of the preview:

Immersive has always been a good word to use to describe Myst, and Myst V raises the bar to a new level. It's not just the ability to roam around the 3D environments at will, but there are plenty of nice little touches, like the way everything shakes when a frequent quake hits, or the tiny critters that flit about. Visually, we've gotten to the point where the static 2D worlds of the first game can now be rendered in full 3D without loss of image quality. You'll definitely want to pay attention to the sound, as well. Sound played a huge role in Myst IV, and the sound in Myst V helps make the game come alive, from the ambient background noise to the atmospheric sound effects.
Myst V is scheduled to ship sometime this fall. The limited collector's edition can be preordered from To read the full preview and look at new screenshots check the links below.
