    Der Kampf ist das Schicksal, das uns erwartet...

    Horcht auf Ihr Recken, die Unholde sind wieder angetreten, um sich fürchterlich zu rächen. Alles was uns lieb ist auf Erden, wollen sie vernichten. Rachedürstend haben Sie Ihre Scharen und Anstrengungen verdoppelt, mit Stahlstangen, Schwertern und Brandpfeilen nähern Sie sich dem Schauplatz des Kampfes.

    Seid also gerüstet, Ihr edlen Helden des gerechten Weges. Unsere Söhne sollen den Weg des Tapferen gehen, wenn es darum geht, des Feindes Mut und Willen zu brechen, um die entscheidende Schlacht zu schlagen.


    'Myth 2' bietet alles, was das strategische Kriegerherz höher schlagen läßt:
    • Multiplayer- u. Internet-Kampagnen
    • Frei wählbare Kameraperspektive mit stufenlosem Zoom für den optimalen 3D-Kick.
    • Bewegliche Polygon-Modelle wie Windmühlen & Zugbrücken.
    • Magisches Effektfeuerwerk – mit Partikelsystemen, Transparenzen & aufwendigen Sound-Abmischungen.
    • Neue KI: Ihre Gegner sind noch heimtückischer und gefährlicher als im Vorgänger.

Macworld (Aug. 31, 2006):

    Bungie's Myth II game resurrected for Intel Macs

    Another classic game has returned from the mists of time for one more go-round with Mac gamers: Bungie Software’s legendary squad-based real time tactical action game Myth II: Soulblighter. It’s now available as a Universal binary for Intel and PowerPC-based Macs alike, thanks to the efforts of Project Magma.

    Before Halo and after the Marathon series, Bungie branded itself in many Mac and PC gamers’ minds as the company that created Myth and Myth II, two fantasy-based real time tactical action games in which you assume control of small armies made up of different kinds of units, such as sword-wielding warriors, archers, dwarves who throw bombs and so on. The game’s story pits the forces of The Light and The Dark in an epic battle for supremacy. Myth II was first released in 1998.

    On Thursday Project Magma released a public beta version of Myth II 1.6 — an update that contains the Mac OS X Universal binary version, Mac OS X-native versions of Fear and Loathing — the Bungie-made “mod” tools that let you craft your own scenarios, and more. It’s available for download as a “final quality release,” to make sure that it can be more thoroughly tested before it’s declared the final release.

    Please note that Myth II 1.6 is not a complete game — you will need Myth II Soulblighter to be installed from the original installation CD in order to make use of this new file.

Test your fortitude by challenging others on your network or online to a battle to the death, or cross swords and sages with Soulblighter himself. For fantasy gamers, this is far better than a slab of roast beast washed down with a tall ale...

    Thanks to the efforts of Loki, this awesome adventure is now available for Linux 2.x and glibc2. Now you can match the power of your sorcery with the power of your favorite operating system. Get it now...before it's too late.
