Myst 25th Anniversary Release

We are very excited to be releasing Myst IV: Revelation on the day of Myst’s 25th Anniversary on Steam!

Today’s release of Myst III: Exile and Myst IV: Revelation completes the 7-game Myst Collection in digital format. We hope you enjoy the game whether you are a first-time player or a returning player who is feeling a little nostalgic.

Should you have something you would like to report regarding Myst IV: Revelation, please contact us directly at We would be happy to assist you.

Release Notes:

Myst IV: Revelation is available in 6 languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Dutch. To access language selection after the game has been downloaded, right-click on the game in your Library, select Properties, select the ‘Language tab’, and then select the language option of your choice from the drop-down menu. Language selection can also be changed via the in-game options menu.

Windows 10 compatibility update.

Please make sure your anti-virus program is not blocking the game from launching. You may need to modify the settings in your anti-virus to grant permission to allow the file "myst4.exe' to run. This file is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Myst IV Revelation\bin\Myst4 (for a default install).

Make sure you have the latest drivers installed for your graphics setup, otherwise you may experience crashing or oddities with the graphics.

Known Issues:

We are currently investigating an issue with some players experiencing a crash on launch. The crash happens just after the screen resolution change. If this crash happens to you, (1) check to make sure you have the latest audio and graphic drivers installed for your system and (2) make sure your anti-virus program is not blocking the game from starting up (see above notes). If the game still crashes on launch after trying the suggestions above, please contact our support team and include the dxdiag report for your computer.

The Steam overlay in game only opens in 4:3. Myst IV supports the range of resolutions available in the 4:3 aspect ratio [only] and the game plays in full-screen mode [only]. The Windows command to place the game in a window, Alt+Enter, does not have any effect on this game.

Starting the game without speakers requires a game restart to enable the audio if speakers plugged in after start.
