At 8:30 PM PST, the game's closed beta will go dark for one hour in support of the WWF's "Earth Hour 2010" The game will be back online at 9:30PM PST.

"As a company based in Austin, a city that has active policy that protects the environment, we feel a duty to proactively participate in saving the planet," said Jeff Lujan, CEO of True Games Interactive. "All of our titles, including Mytheon, are based on a strong belief in digital distribution of games-which means we do not have excess waste like retail packaging, transportation, etc., but we are willing to go one step further on Saturday and we call on others to do the same. Working together we can make a difference."

WWF's Earth Hour began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when over 2 million individuals and 2,000 businesses turned off their lights for one hour to take their stand against climate change. By March 2009, hundreds of millions of people in over 4,000 cities in 88 countries officially switched off for Earth Hour. Earth Hour 2010 will continue to be a global call to action to every individual, every business and every community. A call to stand up, to take responsibility, to get involved and lead the way to a low-carbon future.

"It may seem like one hour can't make a difference, but with millions of people all over the world participating it really can," said Randy King, Senior Producer of Mytheon. "Together with True Games, we want Mytheon and the Mytheon community to be part of something that calls attention to how we can make a better future for all of us."

Mytheon is an online, multiplayer action/RPG with strategic game play where players experience classic mythology come to life and challenge legendary gods to define their own fate. Players, or "Stonecasters," are powerful humans imbued with the ability to cast spells, summon minions, and erect structures that aid them in battle. An assortment of classes are available that approach combat differently and offer a range of unique, cinematic abilities.
