Uru Beta Goes Live on GameTap

Uru Live, the online component of Cyan's 2003 title Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, was taken down by publisher Ubisoft in 2004. Recently, subscription-based game download service GameTap announced that it would be reviving Uru Live. Gametap mainly offers a growing selection of classic titles but now also is becoming increasingly involved in new projects, such as partially funding the Sam & Max episodic adventure games. Today, an open beta of Myst Online: Uru Live was launched, allowing GameTap subscribers to play a pre-release version of the game. In conjunction with the beta, GameTap is currently offering a promotion that confers a month of GameTap service for $0.99, after which it defaults to the regular monthly price of $9.95.
