After the successful Beta earlier this year, Dark Point Games is now ready to bring their first game, Achilles: Legends Untold into Early Access on May 12th. The game is a really cool mix of isometric gameplay, with a Soul-like combat twist to it, all set to a Greek Mythology background.

Pawel Waszak, CEO and Lead Game Designer had the following to say about the game:

Thousands of people played and enjoyed the beta earlier this year and thanks to their feedback we were able to really fine-tune the experience. We cannot wait to start our path into Early Access and hope that our players will follow our journey every step of the way.

Achilles: Legends Untold is an isometric action RPG, greatly inspired by the souls-like genre and old-school hack & slash games. Players will have to rely on Achilles’ raw power to overcome legendary characters and creatures from Homer’s Iliad, while taking in Ancient Greece through rich lore and environmental storytelling as they make their way to the gates of Troy and beyond.

As the studio wanted to create an easy-to-learn-but-hard-to-master-experience, the combat is designed with souls-like tactics in mind, without letting it become a barrier to newer players. This way, Achilles: Legends Untold may be enjoyed by Souls veterans and new players alike.

For those who prefer fighting side-by-side with friends, the game also provides a robust co-op experience with procedurally generated dungeons to explore, allowing you and your friends to hone their skills even further.

The gameplay features satisfying and skill-based combat, RPG elements, and resource management. Collect raw materials to forge new deadly weapons and sturdy shields to take Achilles to the peak of his power. Become stronger and more ferocious with each ability you unlock and adapt to new challenges in the world, as Achilles is not the only one picking up new tricks along the way.

Achilles: Legends Untold features the innovative GAIA system, which means the AI characters’ actions feel lifelike and work together in unpredictable ways. Experience immersive battles in which monsters adapt to your playstyle, try different strategies or create ambush scenarios, all driven by this contemporary, in-house-designed system.

Achilles: Legends Untold will be available on Steam for $19.99 / EUR 18.99
