Suzhou, China, November 12th, 2021 - Today, developer Angela Game is thrilled to announce that the stunning multiplayer war sandbox Myth of Empires will be launching into Early Access on 18 November. Players will dive into a realistic and beautiful, yet merciless world set in ancient Asia, where they will aim to unite the world through alliances, or conquer it all by force. Players will be able to switch between PvE and PvP servers - so-called “counties” - which are linked to one main server to wage global war or unite players from all over the world. Thanks to state-of-the-art graphics including Raytracing, DLSS and more, an online world has never looked more beautiful.

Myth of Empires is set on the ancient Eastern continent, featuring a historical-inspired setting. The world has been handcrafted to provide an authentic experience, with realistic geography, landforms, flora and fauna as well as a rich cultural backdrop, bringing players a refreshing and novel adventure. As the game is focusing heavily on realism, players will not have access to fantasy elements like magic - instead, the game provides an immersive sandbox featuring detailed construction and crafting systems combined with a deep character progression.

The setting also heavily influences combat, which is essential to reach the players’ ultimate goal: to submit all counties under one rule. In
Myth of Empires, players, their guilds and alliances, will be able to conquer or unite counties, allowing them to unify ancient Asia. All this is possible thanks to the seamless connection between PvE and PvP servers, providing different types of gameplay for all types of players.

 

Key features available in the Early Access:

  • Brave an unforgiving world filled with bandits, wild animals, and hostile players. Stave off hunger with meat collected through hunting, and collect resources from the world to build your fort.
  • New environments: Snowy mountains, deserts, swamps, caves, and an all-new weather system.
  • Engage enemies in intense, tactical combat. Control the direction of your strikes to maximize their impact and damage.
  • Craft dozens of different kinds of weapons and armor of different tiers to help you in battle. Make swords, spears, halberds, axes, throwing weapons, crossbows, bows, shields, and more!
  • New animals: Elephants, rhinos, crocodiles, butterflies, fish, and more.
  • Construct your very own customized structures piece by piece, and build siege weapons including ballistas, catapults, trebuchets and siege ladders to wreak havoc upon enemy fortresses.
  • Recruit NPCs through peaceful means or by force and have them collect resources, craft items, hunt, or fight alongside you. Tame horses that you can ride into battle, or breed them to make horses with attributes more suited to your needs.
  • PVE and PVP servers will be available in Asia, North America, and Europe.
  • A robust guild system allows players to form factions with their friends. Work together to fend off enemy attacks, conquer your server, and reign supreme!
  • New gameplay and content: County, province and fortress siege battles, as well as improved voice-chat, a new trade system, and character voices.
 

Myth of Empires will launch into Early Access worldwide on 18 November and will be available on Steam.
