Myth II is a real time tactical game based on squad and unit management rather than resource gathering and expansion. Thanks to a realistic physics engine and meticulous unit balance, gameplay is highly varied and flexible. Your success or failure will be dictated by clear planning, an understanding of the terrain and an ability to mobilise your troops effectively; brute force alone will likely get you killed.

How can I play Myth?

To get started with your first experience of Myth, download the free Myth II 1.5.1 Demo and fire up a new single player game.

Once you've had a taste of the carnage on offer, you'll want to try your hand online. You're actually already set up to play on MariusNet as a Guest, without having to register. So just open the Multiplayer Game menu, choose your name, team and colors, then click on the Guest button without entering a password.

If you'd like to be able to have a custom name, or keep track of your games you'll need to register for an account. You can do that on the Mariusnet Website

If you can't find any open games on MariusNet, you could always register for an account at PlayMyth.net before hitting their server for some games. You'll need to switch to their server in-game as well using the Server button in the Multiplayer screen.

System Requirements

The Myth demo runs on all modern operating systems with the following minimum requirements:

  • Windows 95
  • or Mac OS 8.6 with CarbonLib
  • or Mac OS X 10.1
  • 233MHz CPU
  • 64 MB RAM
  • 100 MB disk space

You may not have seen the news. Namely this is due to archiving, however the Demo is now hosted on Moddb. If you haven't seen the promo video for the 1.8 patch it's below, most of the features are in the demo aside from the plugin manager as plugins aren't supported.

A cult classic sequel to another cult classic: Myth: The Fallen Lords.
The very ancestors for all 3d games.
It's greatest features are:
Flawless physics and SFXs, extremely talented voices, exceptional music from Martin O'Donnell and Mike Salvatori, and an UNIQUE storyline unmatched to date.

It's a shame they never made the planned fourth game.
