-Atrus is (If the girl is Yeesha) still alive.

-Cyan Is making the game (there logo is at the website.).

-Jack Wall is doing the music. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

Feel free to add.

"To dwell on the past is to die in the present" -Atrus (Riven)

"Taking only from the past only that which is good. Maybe in the process we can build a
better and brighter future." -Atrus (Exile)

Best Games Ever
1)Riven (Iv'e been playing 15+ hours and im still in the first age.)
2)Uru (The best graphics Iv'e seen.)
3)Exile ( I love the fact that the people aren't animated.)
4)KotOR (2003 Game of the year (what else needs to be said.).)
5)Jedi knight (Yes the first one.)
6)Jedi Outcast (The PUZZLES!!!)
7)Myst (Fun yet old)

Ubisoft is making the game, Cyan is working with them (story writer/consultant?) much like with Exile.

After getting some more information, I'm going to have to eat my words and pretend I didn't say anything.
^_^

Something to add: Peter Gabriel is helping Jack Wall with the music.

Cheers,

The links to the Prison Ages of Sirrus and Achenar were never destroyed, like we thought.

Rand Miller is playing Atrus. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

The Mac release is simultanous with the PC release. (YAHOO!)

Yup. Mr. Gabriel himself is releasing a song with Myst IV, the same way he did "Burn You Up, Burn You Down" for URU.

I thought at first that the girl was Yeesha, but look at her clothes!! Either UbiSoft is disreguarding the traditional Myst style, Atrus went shopping on the surface, or someone new has stumbled on the World of Myst.

The game is going to be released on CD.

*eiwee* If it's &lt;fingers crossed&gt; pre-rendered I hope they'll also have a DVD version as well.

Is it safe to say we actually know anything? Just a thought. hmmm... so, question: where is the actual Myst4 site anyway? Well, I am totally hyped about all this, and I'm glad it'll be pre=rendered. I didnt much like Uru, to be honest. I wouldn't even consider it a part of the Myst Series!

Have you played Uru? There could be a reason for that.

Well, after being dressed (as we see in this teaser) like this by her parents, it's easy to see why Yeesha grew up into a proto-punk goddess with face tattoos and Bahros as her best buds! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Go back and look at the video, you will find that she is not wearing coveralls. Look at her back when its turned to the camera. You will see shoe string webbing like form some of the older dresses you find from the past.

The little girl is in a dress? Well, at least it's not a robe. Dresses are for well, "dressing up". Pants are so much better for playing and doing stuff.

Thankfully, grownup Yeesha in Uru is (tiny bitty spoiler for Uru) wearing pants, or leggings, something like that - much better for running around.

Well, to be honest, i know for an obvous fact that its pre-rendered, because there is no way in the known universe that any pc they expect us to own can handle the "hi-def" graphics.
Another thing, after seeing the trailer, it seems that this game is going to deal with the history of sirus and achenar, and, obviously the problems they had in the family.
To be perfectly honest, after playing URU, im actually hoping they bring you into Releeshan. I would die to see that, or some of the ages in Phils relto (sorry, spoiler) i really play these games for the scenes and plot, so thats what i look forward to.

Yes, I'm holding my breath to see Releeshahn as well. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Pre-rendering ROCKS!!!

they said you were supposed to see sirus' and achenar's twisted worlds. But, i didnt think that they wrote.
Id also like to see some of the ages from the journals on myst.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the journals on Myst refer to the very Ages you visit in Myst. There may be 1 or 2 exceptions when Atrus mentions visiting another Age, but the main focus was still the original 4 Ages.

Ah, good point. But what about all the books that had been burned? Oh wait, I guess that's a dumb speculation. I suppose that the ones that were burned didn't relly show anything, and we may have already visited some of those ages in Riven and Exile, and maybe even URU.

Pre-rendering ROCKS!!!

Didn't u visit Narayan? J'nanin? They were some of the original ages of Myst.

I like the style of this game - the clothing is very old-fashioned. Keep in mind that Myst is supposed to be set 200 years ago. Exile is 10 years later. Most people here assume Revelation is about 6-9 years after that judging by the age of Yeesha. (Age as in oldness, not Age as in World).

I think Phils Relto will have absolutely nothing to do with Revelation!!! Hopefully we'll see more of those in the Uru expansions.

But Releeshahn - yes I've been waiting for that since Exile.

Hmm I dont think Peter Gabriel is "helping" - he's just releasing a new song. Personally I dont like this idea - it was OK in Uru which is set NOW and anything goes. But Revelation should be Mysty and another pop song wont help that.

Oh on the graphics, it is fairly clear from the trailer that it will be pre-rendered. First of all the graphics are awesome, theres no way to do that with realtime.
Secondly, there are live actors, so they wont fit in very well with realtime.
Thirdly, look at all the shots. All of them have a fixed camera and are rotating, just like in the Exile trailers. And they have the same exaggerated feel of a 2D panorama.

I for one welcome this! I like the advanced graphics and panoramas rather than the open exploration of Uru. Also it'll be a relief not to have jumping puzzles, pushing-around puzzles and the like.
