Polish studio Dark Point Games have announced Achilles: Legends Untold, a brand new isometric action RPG inspired by Dark Souls and Diablo. As the name suggests, the game follows Achilles the hero of the Trojan War
Achilles: Legends Untold in the upcoming action RPG from Polish studio Dark Point Games, inspired by action RPGs like Dark Souls and Diablo. You get to play as Achilles, the Greek warrior and hero of the Trojan War, who is recruited by Hades to confront the god of war Ares on his behalf.
The official description states that players will face hordes of mythical beasts, mercenaries and demigods on their journey through ancient lands. The game is played from an isometric perspective, as expected, for a game that draws inspiration from hack and slash titles.
And while Dark Souls is another big inspiration for the team, Achilles: Legends Untold won't be as hard as From Software's title. The creators wanted to make a game that would be more accessible to beginners, who are just starting their adventure with this type of gameplay.
However, this doesn't mean that Achilles: Legends Untold is a title aimed only at newcomers because it is filled with optional challenging missions, which will certainly also satisfy experienced players.
Achilles can also use various weapons, starting with a sword, axes and ending with a spear or a two-handed battle axe. Each weapon offers a different experience, so every player will be able to fight in a way that suits him best.
In addition, the hero has an extensive skill tree, which will allow to create an individualised character build, tailored to the player's favourite gameplay style. In addition to the single-player campaign, the game will also feature a co-op mode, in which players will be able to explore mysterious dungeons together.
Achilles: Legends Untold will launch on Steam in the first quarter of 2022 in Early Access.
