"Bungie Software, long a leader in both multiplatform development and high-end games, casts a vote of confidence for Linux by announcing that their recent hit title "Myth II: Soulblighter" will soon be available for the open-source platform.

"To port and distribute the title Bungie has turned to Loki Entertainment Software, the premier company bringing triple-A titles to the Linux platform."

"Code for the Linux version of Myth II is already being compiled, and Loki expects the title will be complete in the late summer of 1999. Linux users will soon be joining crowds of Windows and Macintosh gamers on, the free Internet game service that supports Myth: The Fallen Lords and Myth II: Soulblighter.
