It's been a busy couple of days in the world of Xbox, including the brand's Gamescom 2021 Showcase and attendance at Gamescom Opening Night Live, but don't forget that we've got another major Game Pass title dropping today!
After 28 long years, the classic PC adventure game Myst is finally making its way to Xbox consoles for the first time, and this is a totally reimagined version for Xbox (and PC / VR), having been built from the ground up.
What Is Myst's Release Time On Xbox Game Pass?
Myst is scheduled to release on Xbox Game Pass "around" 9am PT / 12pm ET / 5pm BST / 6pm CEST.
Notably, this version of Myst is using AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution [FSR] to "crank the graphics quality much higher than we typically would be able to", with the game running at 4K, 60fps on Series X and 1440p, 60fps on Series S.
If you've never heard of Myst, here's a bit of what you can expect:
Journey to Myst island and other stunning locations - called “Ages”- and begin to unravel the mystery you have been thrust into. As you learn what happened on the island, you will discover that you are playing a key role in an epic story whose ending has not yet been written. Explore deeper connections in these magnificent, surreal Ages, uncover a story of ruthless family betrayal, and make choices that will affect both you, and the world of Myst itself.
Built from the ground up, Myst is teeming with new art, new sound, re-imagined interactions, and even optional puzzle randomization. Finally... the highly anticipated modern Myst experience has arrived!
