The entire development team is thrilled for the launch of Achilles: Legends Untold next week, but just before the gates of Troy open for everyone, we have one final preview piece. The epic action RPG features a vast world of legends untold, mighty enemies, and many combat possibilities, so we prepared a gameplay video with developer commentary to walk you though some of the challenges that Achilles will face:

Dark Point Games shows the setting and some of the mechanics and foes, both human and beast, that you’ll be facing in a new take on the stories of the Iliad. In the more than 20 hours of adventure that await, the fighting style of our hero is yours to define, as you’ll progress in a skill tree that unlocks abilities that will hopefully increase your chances of making it to the next shrine. Select your ideal weapon, from wielding a one-handed sword and an axe in the other, to the might of two-handed swords, or perhaps a poisoned spear instead. Exploration of the open world of Greece is rewarded plentifully, with many treasures to loot, but beware of taking too many risks, as mighty enemies can end it all for you in a blink. If you fall in battle, rise again, enhance your hero’s skills, try a different tactic, and venture forth once more.

Rewrite the myth of Achilles – the mighty Greek warrior and the commander of brave Myrmidons. After the War of Troy, you return to Greece and find your homeland plunged into chaos. The multilayered story takes you through the diverse locations of ancient Mycenae, 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. On November 2, the story will be complete as Achilles: Legends Untold brings the full tale of the hero of the Trojan War, together with many improvements that elevate the epic adventure, including more than 20 hours of gameplay, exciting quests, and a New Game+ mode.
