Developer Dark Point Games studio has announced an isometric action RPG Achilles: Legend Untold, coming to early access in Q1 2022. The developers admit to having been greatly inspired by the souls-like genre and old-school hack&slash games.
“Take part in the journey of Achilles, who stands in the middle of the centuries-long conflict between Hades and Ares. The young hero is being sent to battle the War God’s child – Phobos. His journey will take him to many different corners of mythological lands where he will obtain powerful artifacts that will aid him in his quest. Achilles is not alone as Hephaistos – the god of blacksmiths – is always ready to craft new weapons in exchange for materials.”
The players will venture through many unwelcoming locations, battling legendary creatures and trying to piece up the story of the world. The game is a bit lighter on the “souls” side, as the studio wanted to create an easy-to-learn but hard to master experience.
The team promises enjoyable skill-based combat, RPG elements, and resource management. Achilles: Legends Untold also features an innovative GAIA system, responsible for the AI characters’ actions who feel lifelike and work together in unpredictable ways.
