Gameplay will revolve round the use of Power Stones, which will have a variety of uses and effects and allow players to summon creatures, use magic, and set traps. Mytheon will have Group Play modes and PvP modes.
Mytheon is due out in the fall 2009. Players who are interested can sign up for updates at the official site.
