PARIS, FRANCE (October 10, 2016): Mythic Games, the new game studio from co-creators of the Conan Board Game, announces today Mythic Battles: Pantheon will make its Essen-Spiel debut October 13 – 16, 2016. Mythic Battles: Pantheon is one of the most-anticipated board games currently in development and “…stole the show…” (Tech Raptor) at its North American debut at Gen Con in August.
Essen-Spiel attendees will have the opportunity to play as a famous god of Greek mythology, assemble warriors, lead troops into battle, create their own Pantheon and become the new ruler of Olympus. Game demos will take place in the Mythic Games/Monolith booth by members of the development team (Hall 2, 2-F-115) and players can also collect limited edition badges of iconic Olympic gods.
“We’re thrilled at the response Mythic Battles: Pantheon has been receiving and we look forward to testing its mettle with one of the most discerning board game audiences in the world at Essen-Spiel,” says Léonidas Vesperini, project manager of Mythic Games.
The mighty Titans of Greek lore awoke and unleashed a massive attack on Olympus. While the Titans were ultimately defeated, the world is ravaged and the surviving Olympians now mere mortals. As the former Gods awake to a broken world, Mythic Battles: Pantheon begins their adventure through Olympus, Styx and the Labyrinth of Minos to regain the glory left decimated by the wrath of the Titans. Playing as Zeus, Athena or any number of Greek gods alongside an army of heroes such as Achilles and Hercules and monsters such as the Hydra, Cerberus and Medusa, in victory players will be a god.
Mythic Battles: Pantheon launches on Kickstarter November 1, 2016 with an anticipated release date for hobby gaming stores worldwide summer 2017. Register for exclusive promotions and updates on facebook.com/mythicbattles.
