Rise of the Argonauts RevealedRise of the Argonauts is a large-scale action-focused RPG in development at Liquid Entertainment for Games for Windows and major console platforms. Codemasters says the game will feature deep exploration and epic quests, with players taking the role of Jason, King of Iolchis, and battle alongside iconic mythological heroes including Hercules, Achilles, Atalanta and others. Players will set sail aboard the Argo and explore the vast world of Aegean, encountering islands filled with cities, jungles and deep forests. The adventurers will come face-to-face with hordes of enemy warriors, ruthless beasts and formidable mythological creatures with players engaging in heart-pumping combat. The gods follow Jason on his quests, with the hero gaining the favor of the gods as the game progresses, earning special abilities. Actions may not please all gods equally so while one god may grant the player special powers, another may inflict torment on the heroes at any moment. Rise of the Argonauts is scheduled for release in 2008.
