Myth War Online was a 2D free-to-play fantasy-themed MMORPG published by IGG. It is set in a fictional universe inhabited by mythological creatures. Combat occurs similar to old RPG games such as Final Fantasy where a player forms a party (mainly consisting of pets) and the sides take turns attacking each other.[1] This style of gameplay is created to appeal to nostalgic classic RPG players.[2][3] Events and content addons occur every 2 months in response to player demand.[3][4]

As of May 2009, Myth War Online I had had all of its servers shut down permanently to make way for the sequel, Myth War Online II. Announcement of Closure for Myth War Online [Jan 15, 2015] Dear players,

With a heavy heart, we announce the closure of our beloved Myth War Online. Our sincerest thanks go out to everyone who have supported us all this time. .[5]

Gameplay[edit]

Character Races[edit]

There are four different races a player can choose from. Each is unique in its own way.

Humans[edit]

In the game, humans are a fallen tribe. The lives of humans are not affluent and stable. As a result, they have no choice but to do whatever they can even if it means doing something immoral or illegal. Humans are described as smart, reckless, wicked and go-getting.[3]

Centaurs[edit]

Similar to humans, centaurs have a long history and civilization. However, in contrast to the other races, centaurs have a social system whereby the female possesses a higher status than a male. They are prized to be noble and beautiful. Despite their warlike appearance, they love peace and like to live in a quiet environment. Centaurs are born with great agility and have a high intelligence level and low vit.[3]

Mages[edit]

Mages are normally a combination of humans and Centaurs. The race was cursed ever since it existed and was cursed again after they sold their souls to the dark lord. Although many have a deep hatred towards other races, some are intelligent enough to forgive and progress positively.[3][6]

Borgs[edit]

Borgs are half robot-half human. Their vast knowledge of technology is their main form of power.


Since the game closed there have been few attempts to re-open the game by private users, but to currant date, none has been successful.
