Sirrus & Achenar back in action? Hmmmmm. Looks like Yeesha's in there, too.

Yeesha was not born until after her two brothers had been dealt with. That scene probably was not of Yeesha. Catherine perhaps?

It seems that Atrus did not destroy his sons. Note a red and a blue book in one of the scenes, being released from some sort of mechanism...

If that is Yeesha in the pictures, she's younger than in Uru. Perhaps Revelation occurs between Exile and Uru?

Very interesting... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I thought Myst IV was being developed by Cyan. According to an article at Gamespot it's being developed by Ubisoft Montreal.

At the end of Myst I assumed the books themselves were destroyed (the charred areas on the bookstands) and the son's were trapped in the prison books?

The gamespot article sheds some light on the girl....

Nope. Myst IV was always being handled solely by UbiSoft; they were having it done by another company (DreamForge Intertainment) but decided to keep it "in-house," with Cyan supplying "Initial Input" Only.
All of the above is from Jim Stephenson's Myst IV Page (http://members.aol.com/mystsequel7/myst4/intro1.html)

I watched the previews. That Revelation is going to be absolutely awesome. I'm glad they brought back live actors. Hopefully, it will also be 360 free roam like Exile.

We'll talk amongst ourselves while you collect yourself.

That looks great!!

That would have to be Yeesha, since the books are intact. That would be chronolically accurate. Maybe she sets them free by accident? Maybe they capture her and you have to find her and them?

Maybe it's all far more complicated and I'll just have to wait for it!!! ARGH!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

If I'm not mistaken, Cyan is creating the X packs. So Myst IV doesn't really threaten Uru's status, at least not in that regard.

Alah, keep up the good work. So far so good (except it won't let me post an answer in the news and announcement area. So here's my input....)I really like these colors! Sort of like we needed something different. The blue is there (from the original forums), but more subtle. The gold is an excellent contrast.

Just my opinion....

From what I take of it, I think Myst IV orrurs before URU, because we do not seer Atrus and all and Yeesh I would say is about 30 in URU. Of couse it only a hologrqaphic image but still I believe it occurs after Myst IV. And the best do a damn good job.

rxbandit3768
04-06-2004, 10:22 AM
Of course Myst IV takes place long before URU. URU is present day and the Myst games are all past tense. I am pretty sure Yeesha is much older than 30 in URU, but I'm not sure how well the (part) D'ni age so I can't really take a gander at her age.

The second xpack is call the "Path of the Shell". The name that you are refering to is the set package that will have the main game and the first and second xpack bundled together. Now if they called the 2nd xpack something different then you might have room to worry.

One reason I became so enamored of Myst was because of the story of Sirus and Agenar which unfolds itself so skillfully as you explore the ages. Nothing is said. You form your opinions of them through their "works". I physically recoiled when I saw the bloodbath Agnar left and had to quit playing for a bit.

Being the parent of two boys, I found myself wondering throughout the game how they could have grown up to become such despicable adults. I'd been introduced to their father who was so betrayed by them and felt pity for him. I've never felt such emotions playing any other game, except for the particular scene in "Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within" that is so touching I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't played it.

It's quite a feat for a game to be so immersive. The Journals and books show such caring for the story and should be encouraged, but even better to come upon something in the game that makes you wonder about the people and civilization that left it.



I've always felt the story of these two brothers was almost Shakesperian and would make a fine sequel. Thanks Cyan!
