Dear Myst Online fans,
It has been more than two months since Myst Online was launched and the cavern is still buzzing with activity. Behind the scenes, we've been focusing on expanding the Myst Online universe with continuous content and Age updates, improving the technology, and listening to you – the fans.
Now, we're pleased to announce that we're ready to move on to the next phase.
Based on your feedback and in-game actions, we are making some big improvements. Starting with the next update, we are making the move to regularly scheduled episodic content release. By having a set schedule of updates, players can be ready when major events will be happening in the cavern. That means that the release of all of an episode's content and story (e.g. new Ages, pages, clothing, character interaction, story revelations, artifacts and intrigue) will be packed within a single week each month, rather than spreading out the releases over the entire month.
Between episodes, feel free to take a deep breath, talk amongst yourselves, delve into the new content more deeply, create your own events, explore with your friends, discuss and dissect everything that took place, and prepare for the next episode.
This change will take place immediately and our new episode "Scars" will begin on Saturday, May 19th. The beginning is over. Everything in the cavern is about to change. This episode’s highlights include:
• The D'ni Restoration Council (DRC), often criticized for being "overly cautious," is stunned when their caution and control is unable to save the life of someone very close.
• A never-before-seen new Age is released featuring a vast landscape with hours of unique game play to solve by yourself or with friends.
• The first hints of an impending conflict emerge and the repercussions will change the course of the restoration forever.
We couldn't have gotten here without you! Thank you so much for being a vital part of our world.
The Myst Online Team
to start with the statement says two months (this is wrong 5 months plus the beta stages more like) not counting all the years it was offline thanks to UBISoft pulling out
(its now obvious that they knew this was a lame duck right from the start)
In other words hey we are having finacial problems and lets see if we can Con everybody by giving them less for there money
let them pay one month subscrition and only give them one weeks worth of game play.
also its even better to Rip off the international subsribers because they do not get the full GameTap package
So is the so called game worth the money not when you have far better quality and more value for money games out there
CYAN go back to what you know and start to make single player Games and leave the online Games to the professionals
this so called Game is now showing its age (no pun intended) and reading your statemennt its obvious you cannot deliver what you first said you would That was small upgrades every week.
this game is so full of bugs that Cyan cannot control. if anyplayer comes across a bug then Cyan start to threaten that player with a banning order
is this Game worth the Subsription not at the moment
if this Game is still around in another 5 months then may be could be worth another look at it
