The Minotaur is a Big Bully in Achilles: Legends Untold

Dark Point Games has released a brand new trailer to showcase what a big bully the mythical Minotaur is in Achilles: Legends Untold. Players will face off against this bad boy and other ancient creatures of legend when the isometric ARPG, currently in early access, heads into full launch later in 2023 via Steam and Epic Games Store.

The 12-minute video showcases the dynamic combat players must engage in when facing any monster in the game, but most notably those of legend. The team has been working on an updated AI system that adds a new layer of complexity to battles throughout the game. Monsters are smarter, cagier, and less predictable in their attacks and defensive behaviors. As a result, it is easy for players to quickly be overwhelmed and die in a multitude of ways. “Many will find themselves overwhelmed by skeletons, blown to bits by an exploding barrel, or expiring from unremoved statuses like poison or bleeding that deal damage over time.” Tactics will rule the day. Nowhere is this more evident than in the fight with the Minotaur.

Wielding a giant axe, the half-man, half-bull is the guardian of a network of pathways and corridors in the ancient Labirnyth – a new, explorable location in the game. The Minotaur impresses not only with his terrifying stature but also with a set of unique fighting skills. His melee blows are devastating on their own and extremely difficult to dodge. If you try to keep the monster in the distance, however, he will bring a crushing avalanche upon you, forcing you to roll and eventually face him in melee again. These are just some of the abilities you can expect when you finally face him!
