Codemasters confirm the action-RPG gladiatorial adventure
Codemasters have confirmed that the action-RPG gladiatorial adventure Rise of the Argonauts is scheduled to launch in 2008 for Games for Windows and major console platforms.
With deep exploration and epic quests, players will take the role of Jason, King of Iolchis, and battle alongside iconic mythological heroes including Hercules, Achilles, Atalanta and others. As Jason grows from young king to true legend, set sail aboard the Argo and explore the vast Aegean – a dynamic world of islands filled with shining cities, lush jungles and deep forests.
Gamers will leave their mark on ancient Greece as they engage in lethal combat against hordes of enemy warriors, ruthless beasts and truly formidable mythological creatures.
Like all true heroes of Greece, the gods follow Jason on his quests. Jason will gain the favour of the gods and earn special abilities, but his actions may please some gods and displease others. Earning a god's favour will grant players powers within the god's domain, but drawing a god's wrath may cause them to inflict a torment on the heroes at the worst possible moment.
