Earlier this month we brought you the news that Gathering of Developers has
announced Myth III: The Wolf Age, the latest installment of the real-time strategy game originally developed by Bungie Software. The game is in early development at the studios of new game developer Mumbo Jumbo and is anticipated to be released this Christmas.
Although we’re still probably months away from seeing original art and other work for the game, Gathering of Developers decided to strike while the iron is hot. The company released a teaser trailer to help stir interest in the forthcoming game, which will be coming out for both Mac OS (9 and X) and Windows.
Myth III will continue the franchise’s tradition of having an in-depth storyline and will also be a 3D real-time strategy game. Gathering also said that the title will sport true 3D characters, procedural foliage, deformable terrain and network support.
The trailer is encoded in AVI format but runs on the Mac if you have a recent version of QuickTime installed, and it clocks in at about 16MB compressed as a ZIP file (which StuffIt Expander will be able to read without a hitch). As near as we can tell, the game imagery included in this trailer depict scenes from Myth II: Soulblighter, and shouldn’t be perceived as what the finished Myth III game will look like.
