Berlin, 20/09/2010: Frogster today unveiled the Gadegeteer character class from upcoming Hack'n'Slash MMO Mythos. The gadgeteer’s gift with firearms and contraptions make him stand out from the crowd as they use their intelligence to take enemies down with the assistance of traps, bombs and mechanical aids.
As with all character classes as a Gadgeteer players can construct three skill trees which include a variety of abilities and spells. Gadgeteers who choose the ‘Marksmen’ skill category take the art of firearms to the heights of perfection. Thanks to powerful magic spells which can be used to strengthen their fire power, even long-range opponents have little hope. On the other hand, ‘Grenadiers’ fire self-made grenades at groups of monsters resulting in enormous explosive capabilities. Using ingenious traps they can ensnare enemies and confuse them to such an extent that they start to attack themselves. The third possible customization for a Gadgeteer is the ‘Tinker’. They prepare flying drones or gun turrets as mechanical aids which automatically open fire on monsters and even have the ability to heal the user when required.
You can see how the refined skills of the marksman, grenadier, and tinker perform in-game in three brand new videos at www.mythos-europe.com. More information on the game can be found on the official website as well as the opportunity to register for the closed beta which is due to open soon.
Mythos brings the highly successful “Hack-and-Slash” formula to an action-packed online role-playing game. Mythos offers players a virtual fantasy world based on an comic book-style atmosphere where they hunt countless monsters in a variety of dungeons. Players may also compete with each other in gripping PvP battles. There is a choice of four races and three character classes which can be heavily customized. Mythos was originally developed by Flagship Studios and since 2009 has been further continued and prepared for its release in Europe by the Korean publisher, HanbitSoft. Frogster will publish the game in four language versions – English, German, French and Turkish. The action-packed online game is due to be launched in early 2011.
