Microsoft gets Mythical

The MMORPG bandwagon is starting to look interesting again.

Microsoft has announced the in-house development of an intriguing massively multiplayer RPG called Mythica, based on Norse mythology. We say intriguing because the aim is to apparently blend the “depth and sophistication” of a single player RPG with the social experience of a massively multiplayer game. This is achieved through “Private Realms” technology, whereby a player will be able to his or her own private adventure that focuses on providing rich gameplay experiences and storylines in which their own actions have lasting consequences in a persistent game world.

Microsoft expects Mythica to arrive sometime in 2004, but will be exhibiting the game on its stand at E3 in May.
