Dark Point Games has announced that its Steam Early Access RPG Achilles: Legends Untold will be coming to PlayStation and Xbox consoles (both generations) in Q3 2023. Accordingly, the full PC release has also been delayed to coincide with the console launch in order to provide an equal experience across all platforms and add additional content.

Dark Point Games’ Achilles: Legend Untold is an isometric action RPG that lets players assume the role of Achilles in ancient Greece. As the legendary hero, players take on giant mythological creatures and historical warriors with the help of an innovative Group AI Action (GAIA) system. In Steam Early Access since last May, the game was previously slated for a full release in Q2 2023 before the announcement of the current delay. The developer plans to use the additional time to release at least two additional large updates for the game, featuring new maps, bosses, story content, “redesigned” co-op, a character development system, and much more.
From Pawel Waszak, CEO of Dark Point Games:
The simultaneous release of the game for PCs and consoles, and therefore the postponement of the release of the full version of the game for PCs, will allow us to fully realize the potential of Achilles. As a result, we will have additional content for you, which will add even more variety and enrichment to the gameplay. We will continue to listen to your feedback, which will allow us to better tailor the game to your needs and expectations. Ultimately, we want every player to be able to enjoy the game on their favourite platform, so the release of the full version will be available on all major platforms. Each of these steps is essential for you to have an unforgettable experience and for us to succeed in the world of video games.
We are a team that loves creating games for our players, and moving the Early Access release date is an opportunity for us to bring you even more awesome features and content for consoles and PCs. We want Achilles: Legends Untold to be the best it can be, so our team will be working non-stop to introduce new immersive content on a regular basis leading up to its release in Q3. All this will give you more ways to take on the role of Achilles and survive in a brutal world inspired by ancient Greece. However, these are not all of our aces; we still have some up our sleeves! In time, we will reveal what else we have in store for you. Get ready for an unforgettable adventure in ancient Greece!
Achilles: Legends Untold is currently available on Steam and Epic Games Store for $19.99 / €18.99. After the full launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC along with the release of Update 1.0, the game will be priced higher at $24.99 / €23.99 on Steam, Epic Games Store, PlayStation Store, and the Microsoft Store.
