Project Magma is proud to release the first original gametype for Myth:TFL-- Ghôl Rugby! Having taken over 2 years in development and testing, Ghôl Rugby pushes the TFL engine to new limits, providing an entirely new style of gameplay. Not only is Ghôl Rugby a brand-new gametype, it's also the first original gametype in Myth history that is FFA-based-- Expect intense 4-way Rugby action!
