Another game that used Greek mythology as a motif was Ubisoft’s Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and if you found that game’s more lighthearted approach to the subject at hand, here’s a more refined action RPG take on it.
As clearly seen with the success of Hades last year, gamers are hungry for more and more stories set in ancient Greece. Filled with mythical monsters and vengeful gods, this setting allows for a lot of interpretation through video games.
Asterigos is an all-new action adventure game by Taiwanese developers Acme Gamestudio, which was formed by a group of passionate developers in 2016.
Those who favour a more magical approach to combat can do so with the staff as it enables long-range attacks, allowing players to defeat the enemy before they approach. Lastly, there are bracelets that are used to set up magic mines around the battle arena.
The spear requires high reflexes and controls to parry the enemy, but rewards players with strong counterattacks. The heavy duty hammer is powerful and can easily break the enemy’s balance.
If you’ve ever wanted a mix between The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the original God of War trilogy, Asterigos will be right up your alley.
The game will be released on PlayStation 4 and PC by spring 2022, with a PlayStation 5 release in fall 2022. Keep up to date with Asterigos’ development on its official website.
