Game world to open to players for the first time on December 28th as stress test begins.
Berlin, 17/12/2010: In preparation for the fast approaching closed beta, Mythos has now entered the ‘Family & Friends’ phase. This means that Frogster is putting its servers to the test: On December 28 th, thousands of players will be allowed to enter the game world for the first time to test the capacity of the servers, which may well crash as a result. The mayhem will begin at 11:00 CET (10am UK), and the masses will be unleashed in waves to test the server capacity gradually.
Anyone who goes to the website http://www.mythos-europe.com/en/mmo and creates an account by December 26 th will be entered for a chance to participate. The same goes for fans who already have a closed beta key. Those who have already registered for the closed beta on the official website will automatically be included in the selection process and do not need to register again. Before the test, all candidates will be informed by email whether they can participate and, if applicable, in which wave they will be granted access to the game.
For more information on the stress test, see the official website: www.mythos-europe.de.
This trailer, released last week, sets the tone for the coming beta:

Mythos offers players a virtual fantasy world based on a 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 customised. 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.
