'Achilles: Legends Untold' Closed Beta Later This Week, Accepting Sign-ups, Early Access Delayed until Q2 - Screens & Trailer

Achilles: Legends Untold is an isometric action RPG that draws inspiration from soulslike and hack & slash genres.

It's time to uncover the unknown pages of mythology! Confront the god of war in Achilles: Legends Untold and face your destiny.

Play as Achilles, the Greek warrior and hero of the Trojan War, who is recruited by Hades to confront the god of war Ares on his behalf. Face hordes of mythical beasts, mercenaries and demigods roaming the Earth. To do so, the hero sets out on a journey through ancient lands to find powerful, magical artefacts that will allow him to fulfil his mission as divine executioner. Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths, will lend Achilles his helping hand by transforming any resources he gathers into new weapons.

The combat in Achilles: Legends Untold brings a unique isometric approach to traditional Souls-like gameplay. Learning enemy movements and timing your attacks will be key, while Dark Point Games also added devastating special abilities like the shield toss to overwhelm enemies with Achilles’ raw power. This way, Achilles: Legends Untold may be enjoyed by souls veterans and new players alike. 

The gameplay features satisfying and skill-based combat, RPG elements, and resource management. Collect raw materials to bring to the forge to create new deadly weapons and sturdy shields to take Achilles to the peak of his power. As you watch Achilles become stronger and more ferocious with each ability you pick up, you as the player will also have to adapt to the world, as Achilles is not the only one picking up new tricks along the way.

In addition to the single-player campaign, the game will also feature a co-op mode, in which players will be able to explore mysterious dungeons together.


Developer Dark Point Games is thrilled to announce that Achilles: Legends Untold will have a closed Beta starting January 27, 2022.

During the beta, players can relive the battle at the gates of Troy, facing legendary warriors like Hektor, Paris and a slew of mythological menaces. While, according to the Iliad, Achilles was at the peak of his unquenchable desire for fame, this battle is only the opening chapter of his untold stories. 

Players can sign up for the closed Beta by joining the Discord.

Achilles: Legends Untold will launch on Steam Early Access in Q2 2022.

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.

Inspired by action RPGs like Dark Souls and Diablo, Achilles: Legends Untold has a much lower level of entry. The creators wanted to make a game that would be more accessible to beginners, who are just starting their adventure with this type of gameplay. It doesn't mean, however, that Achilles: Legends Untold is a title aimed only at newcomers, because it is filled with optional challenging missions, which will certainly also satisfy experienced players.
