Achilles: Legends Untold Announces Console Versions are Coming
Sharpen your javelins— Achilles: Legends Untold announces console versions coming as early as Q3 2023
The action-packed epic set in ancient Greece will launch to PlayStation and Xbox consoles alongside PCs at 1.0 launch in Summer.
Today Dark Point Games announced their action RPG set in ancient Greece, Achilles: Legends Untold, is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S consoles. Additionally, in an effort to provide players with equal access to the full version of the game and to provide a wide range of new features and content, the release of the full version of the game on PC has been postponed to the third quarter of 2023, coinciding with the release on Sony and Microsoft consoles.
“The simultaneous release of the game for PCs and consoles, and therefore the postponement of the release of the full version of the game for PCs, will allow us to fully realize the potential of Achilles. As a result, we will have additional content for you, which will add even more variety and enrichment to the gameplay. We will continue to listen to your feedback, which will allow us to better tailor the game to your needs and expectations. Ultimately, we want every player to be able to enjoy the game on their favourite platform, so the release of the full version will be available on all major platforms. Each of these steps is essential for you to have an unforgettable experience and for us to succeed in the world of video games”, says Pawel Waszak, CEO of Dark Point Games.
Achilles: Legends Untold is an isometric action RPG set in a world inspired by ancient Greek mythology and features an innovative Group AI Action (GAIA) system. As the mighty warrior Achilles, you’ll be pitted against great warriors and giant mythological creatures in a centuries-long conflict between gods and people.
The game launched to Early Access in May 2022, and the development team has worked closely with the community to enhance the gameplay over the last year. Originally slated for Q2 2023, the change in release date gives the team more time to provide extra content that will immerse players even further in the world of Achilles: Legends Untold. The Dark Point Games team plans to release at least two major updates before launch, which will include a ton of epic features. Fans will be able to enjoy new large maps, bosses, mini-bosses, enemies, achievements, storyline development, redesigned co-op gameplay, a character development system, GAIA actions, and more. The total gameplay time is planned to be around 20 to 30 hours, not including the New Game+ mode.
“We are a team that loves creating games for our players, and moving the Early Access release date is an opportunity for us to bring you even more awesome features and content for consoles and PCs. We want Achilles: Legends Untold to be the best it can be, so our team will be working non-stop to introduce new immersive content on a regular basis leading up to its release in Q3. All this will give you more ways to take on the role of Achilles and survive in a brutal world inspired by ancient Greece. However, these are not all of our aces; we still have some up our sleeves! In time, we will reveal what else we have in store for you. Get ready for an unforgettable adventure in ancient Greece!” said Waszak.
Achilles: Legends Untold is available on Steam and Epic Games Store for $19.99 USD / € 18.99. After the full release, it will be available for $24.99 / €23.99 on Steam, Epic Games Store, PlayStation Store and the Microsoft Store.
