The survival game that got kicked off Steam over a stolen source code dispute with Ark: Survival Evolved is set to launch in February, and a playtest is happening right now

After a wild two-year ride that saw it forced off Steam over allegations of source code theft, the “multiplayer war sandbox game” Myth of Empires is set to launch on Steam on February 21. For those who want to see what the game behind the kerfuffle is really all about, a closed technical test is now underway and set to run until January 30.

Myth of Empires first appeared on Steam in 2021, but ran afoul of Ark: Survival Evolved developer Studio Wildcard, which accused Myth of Empires studio Angela Game of stealing the Ark source code—Angela Game was reportedly founded by at least one former employee of Studio Wildcard parent company Snail Games China—and using it to build the new game.
