Mictlan: An Ancient Mythical Tale is an action-adventure game set during the Spanish conquest of Mexico. Developer and publishers Meta Studios Creative Agency K.K are attempting to create the first open-world video game ever created by a Mexican-American studio. It is the first video game completely based on Mesoamerican history and culture.
Set during the Spanish conquest of Mexico, Mictlan‘s story will unravel in a fantasy world heavily inspired by pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures, customs, and myths. You will find yourself immersed in a wide, varied and dark open world, exploring detailed locations with great visual and narrative depth, experiencing a culturally rich atmosphere that belongs to an irretrievable past.
The collapse of the civilisation will lead your soul to the three stages of the Mexica reality:
- The heavens
- The earth
- The Mictlan better known as the Underworld
It is in the underworld where you will battle evil spirits, demonic golds and wild mythological beasts through the nine levels of vertical hells. To free your soul you must face the great Lord of Death: Mictlantecuhtli.
The current release date is Winter 2025 so I am afraid we have a little time to wait.
Mictlan will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, SteamDeck and PC.

Can’t shoot straight, don’t understand maps, shocking memory &…. what was I saying….! 🤔
I am a Content Creator who also Live Streams. I love playing video games, talking about video games and I also write about them as I am an editor for a gaming magazine.
What genre of game do I play? Indie games & story driven games mostly.
Other than that my time is taken up being a Mamma. Yes, I am half Italian and you will find the odd Italian word or phrase being dropped into my streams. Particularly when I become excited 😎
Too many games not enough time!
