Rise of the Argonauts Has Shipped

Rise of the Argonauts, the epic action RPG published by Codemasters and developed by Liquid Entertainment, is now shipping to store shelves in the U.S. for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment system and the PC.

"Rooted in Greek mythology, the narrative in Rise of the Argonauts is a modern retelling of Jason’s relentless quest for the Golden Fleece," said Ed Del Castillo, president of Liquid Entertainment. "The innovative deeds system and immersive environment in Rise of the Argonauts is sure to keep players entrenched in the gameplay."

Rise of the Argonauts immerses players in a gladiatorial adventure set in a wondrously imagined vision of ancient Greece. Taking the role of Jason, a hero and expert warrior, players will battle alongside Hercules, Achilles, Atalanta and other Argonauts as they engage in brutal, real-time combat against formidable beasts and enemies, in a vast world alive with fickle gods, jaw-dropping panoramas, deep exploration and epic quests.

From Athena and Ares to Apollo and Hermes, the Greek gods know and judge all of Jason’s adventures in Rise of the Argonauts. Wise and virtuous Athena casts down bolts of lighting to stun and smite Jason’s foes. Ares, the Lord of Battle, can imbue Jason’s weapons with the power to turn flesh to stone. Apollo, the Sun God, beams shafts of sunlight to protect and regenerate Jason’s health in battle. Hermes, the trickster of Olympus, can grant Jason the power to create decoys of himself or to banish his enemies to Tartarus, the place of the condemned. Through careful decision-making, Jason can improve himself through combat, dialogue and the divine favor of the gods. The search for the Golden Fleece is not only one of exploration, but of transformation: from warrior king to exalted hero touched by the gods.
