From Press Release:
TORUŃ, POLAND, November 2, 2023 — The independent game development team at Dark Point Games is pleased to finally release the 1.0 version of their first game, action RPG with souls-like combat Achilles: Legends Untold, today for PC, PS5 & Xbox Series X|S consoles. The long battle of game development leads us to a new challenge, one against those who threaten the existence of our titular hero’s home:
Explore the mythical world of ancient Greece, where you’ll assume the role of the fearless warrior, Achilles. Dive into a world where mastering combat is key to survival. Block and evade attacks, then sever limbs and heads of your foes with any weapon combination that suits your fighting style. Develop your own tactics and achieve success over your enemies. Explore open worlds and take on countless challenges. If you fall in battle, don’t give up – try again and strengthen your character by enhancing their attributes and acquiring new skills in a deep RPG progression system. The multilayered story takes you through the diverse locations of ancient Greece, where danger lurks at every corner. Learn how to cope with your new nature and step on the hero’s journey to save the mortal world from impending doom.
A combat-based, horde-like mode makes its debut on the PC version of the game and will be available at a later time on consoles. Play solo, team up with a friend, or even join random games. Your character’s progress in the story affects your co-op character, and vice versa! Embark on exciting arenas that unlock as you progress through the main storyline. Each arena offers unique items and Weapon Skills available in the co-op store, obtainable with in-game currency. Additional tasks on every map allow you to earn extra rewards! To kickstart your co-op adventure, simply create a game, choose to play solo or invite a friend. You can also jump into random games or join an ongoing game hosted by a colleague.
“It is a very exciting day for all of us at Dark Point Games,” says Paweł Waszak, CEO. “We set out on this adventure years ago to create our first game, and we’re now ready to let you all start an adventure of your own with Achilles.
