What kind of game is Achilles: Legends Untold?

Achilles: Legends Untold is an action RPG featuring souls-like combat mechanics, set in the mythical world of ancient Greece, where you assume the role of the fearless warrior, Achilles.

What is the story of the game?

The story will focus on Achilles, the great soldier and a renowned warrior at the peak of his life. Then… Our hero dies during the fight with Paris, as written in Homer’s Iliad. It isn’t the end of him though, as he wakes up back in Greece without any memory of what has happened after his demise. Why is he still here? What has transpired in Troy? And why are there monsters and undead walking around? The mystery awaits to be unraveled.

What type of player is Achilles: Legends Untold for?

Achilles: Legends Untold is a game for fans of action-RPG titles, but with a little twist, as it features stamina based, slower and more thoughtful combat instead of button mashing. It has elements like collecting weapons, items, developing your character skills and stats in a way to best suit your playstyle.

Who is developing Achilles: Legends Untold?

Dark Point Games, a small, young development studio based in Poland that’s made up of a team of 20 veterans with extensive experience in the industry, actively working together since the year 2019. This is a forge of creativity where we unleash our ambition to create high-quality video games.

Will the game have difficulty levels?

There are two difficulty levels available. The main differences are the damage received, the enemies' aggressiveness, and the Group AI Action (GAIA) group's attack settings.

What is GAIA and what does it mean?

GAIA (Group AI Action) is an innovative AI behavior system that allows the enemies to cooperate in (non-scripted) realistic and surprising ways. The AI will adapt to your fighting style and attack you together with the other enemies, in example by jumping off each other’s shields to surprise you from above, or even use the environment, like lighting arrows in a nearby source of fire. You’ll have to react to enemy tactics and count on your cleverness to get the upper hand.

Can we change the difficulty of the game as we go along?

Yes, you can change the difficulty at any point in the settings.

Is there a skill tree in the game?

Yes, there is a skill tree where we will unlock new actions to perform during combat, develop the main character's passive skills and increase stats.

What is used to level up the character? Is there some currency (like souls), or is it just simple skill/attribute points?

While playing, you can collect XP and currency for the shop. The XP increases the character level, and with each level you get a skillpoint to spend inside the skill tree. You can also level up your gear at the blacksmith using collected currency and upgrade materials.

Will character classes be available in the game?

No, there are no classes to choose from, nor the character creation – we want to tell a story of a particular, mythical warrior – Achilles.

Will there be "legendary" types of weapons and gear the players can get from enemies?

Acquired gear has a rarity stat (common, rare, epic, mythic) with higher rarity gear requiring more uncommon crafting materials to upgrade their stats. Basic materials are dropped randomly from regular enemies, and higher-tier materials can be obtained by hunting down mythic creatures and defeating bosses or minibosses.

What type of defensive options are available to the player?

Dodge, dodge roll, blocking, and parrying. Additionally, dedicated items can increase resistance to particular types of damage.

What is the size of the world and the locations?

The game features a Troy level, which is a tutorial and an introduction to the Story – it's entirely linear and relatively short. Upon completion, players will travel to the map of Greece, which is much larger and has a more open structure. From there, players will visit a few large sub-locations (city of Mycenae, Mountain Fortress inside the corrupted volcano) as well as several smaller locations (Hades world challenge rifts, abandoned basements, caves and palaces). Later on in the game, players will also unlock a second big open world map, together with its own sub-locations.

Are enemies dead for good once you’ve killed them, or do they respawn after a while?

Regular enemies respawn after the hero's death, but bosses stay defeated.

How long is the playing time?

We assume that for the average player, the game will take about 20-30 hours, depending on their skill and how many side activities they explore.

Does the game have one ending or more?

During the game, you can choose one of two paths that will lead you to a different ending.

How is replayability? Does the game have a definitive end once you are done with the story, or can you keep playing it without starting over from zero?

The game features a New Game Plus mode - you can start the campaign once again, keeping your unlocked skills and collected items. When you kill bosses you have a kill/save option that gives different rewards.

Does the game have a multiplayer mode?

There is a separate arena gamemode for up to two players, with different maps and challenges. Your character's progress in the story will affect your co-op character, and vice versa.

Can player one use a keyboard and mouse, and player 2 use a gamepad? Or do two players use gamepads?
