Seven lucky second-place winners will take home an 8GB iPod Touch, and 100 fans will receive $10.00 iTunes gift cards.
"After a very fun and successful closed beta test, all players will now be able to delve in the world of Mytheon's classic mythology setting and larger than life characters," said Peter Cesario, director of new business and product development at True Games Interactive. "With the open beta test, we welcome all new players to discover the distant yet familiar world of Mytheon and experience fast-action, strategic game play at its finest."
In the open beta test, players will be able to enjoy the most recent content and most polished version of the game without restrictions. In addition, the cash shop items will be available for the first time during open beta for players to sample and enjoy. At various times during the open beta, players will receive "Mytheon Coins" that they can spend as they wish in the cash shop, on items such as armor and weapons, power stones, potions, and much more.
"We've been eager to throw open the virtual doors of this exciting new world and let all players see the unique and addictive gameplay we've been creating," said Randy King, senior producer of Mytheon for Petroglyph. "We are excited to play with the community in the open beta event over the next few days, and to hear their thoughts and feedback on the game as we move closer to our official launch."
