Bungie Releases Final Version Of Myth II 1.3
Our favorite game company, Bungie Software, has released the final version of Myth II: Soulblighter 1.3. The new version includes new features and other performance enhancements. According to Bungie:

The Version 1.3 updater for Myth II: Soulblighter is now available! Along with a number of technical tweaks that are described in the Readme, this updater introduces two intriguing new features to the game.

Version 1.3 introduces an unheard-of new option in the multiplayer Myth world: Deathmatch! Deathmatch is not strictly a game type but a map option, and can be used with the many game types such as Territories, King of the Hill and Assassin. In Myth II Deathmatch, each unit that is lost respawns at its start location, for an endless supply of fodder.

Mapmakers too will rejoice in some of the new options in v1.3. A new Unit Control parameter allows them to build maps that change with different game situations. For example, mapmakers can now detect the number of people playing a cooperative game, and adjust the map's scripts to an appropriate level of difficulty. Also available at bungie.net is a brand new single-player map, Boil and Bubble, which features a new unit, the fearsome Changeling. This seemingly harmless forest creature packs a nasty surprise for unwary travelers.

You can grab the new update at Bungie's web site.

The Mac Observer Spin: Judging by the success of the Myth World Cup '99, this update will be welcomed by the Myth playing community.
