The free MMORPG Myst Legacy left Early Access on Steam on September 13, 2022. It has received almost exclusively positive reviews in the past 30 days.
Myst Legacy was released as a beta version on October 5, 2021. Developer Virty is a small indie team from Canada. It was clear to them from the start that they didn’t want to keep Early Access forever: “We never plan on staying at EA forever,” Virty wrote in an announcement on Steam.
The end of Early Access won’t make a big difference. As the main story continues, the world map expands, offering new resources and challenges. An entirely new arena is also planned, but is currently not playable.
Myst Legacy focuses on RPG
What kind of game is this? Myst Legacy prefers RPGs to MMORPGs and is in many ways a classic RPG reminiscent of Dungeons & Dragons and other tabletop RPGs. You play from a top-down perspective, so you see your character from above.
Your character doesn’t belong to a certain class, so you can develop it freely – in any direction you want. The developers want to create endless possibilities for the entertainment of the players.
This isn’t an MMORPG like the Lost Ark or Black Desert that takes you by the hand and guides you through the game world. You will have to search and explore a lot yourself. So this is a real insider tip for some players.
Due to the strong focus on RPGs and the possibility of taking on NPCs in their fights instead of fellow players, Myst Legacy is ideal for solo players.

Myst Legacy provides this content:
- Your character’s strength is based on the skills you use.
- Turn-Based Battles where you can play with friends and NPCs
- Various PvE content such as dungeons and bosses
- no climbing or jumping
- areas of influencethat affect your character positively or negatively
- You have different abilities depending on where you are.
- An interesting crafting system where you can craft basically anything out of anything and there are no pre-made breaks for items.
Still, there’s something that bothers the players.
Although last month’s reviews are 81% positive and 74% positive at all times, players have criticized Myst Legacy as well.
Like many Free2Play titles, Myst Legacy also offers an in-game shop where you can purchase items for real money. Offered items can save you waiting time and buy experience bonuses, for example. Some fans have a problem with this and refer to the MMORPG as “Pay2Win”.
What are the players saying? We’ve gathered a few comments within Steam reviews that sum up the general sentiment:
- Nymzaro: “I’m enjoying the game so far, but there’s a big but. The need for party members to shop to buy more slots can become a downfall of the game. It costs you €50 to unlock both slots Gotta do it. It’s disgusting.”
- Kazul: “This game is a real insider tip.”
- Saphy_Gaming: “A clear recommendation from me. Don’t be put off by the graphics and tabletop gameplay.”
- Ahrezi: “pay to win 2.0”
- Asbel: “I can only recommend this game to people who are solo gamers and have plenty of time.”
- Tribal: “Great RPG, well written with random events. It’s great.”
What do you understand by Myst Legacy? Have you already checked out MMORPG or are planning to? How much does criticism of a real money store stop you? Do you think it’s appropriate to emphasize the store in the Free2Play title? Write it to us in the comments here on MeinMMO!
