[Update]: Achilles: Legends Untold has now arrived, and while it does show promise it's still a bit rough around the edges.

In a bit of an usual combination of genres, the upcoming Achilles: Legends Untold is a Diablo-inspired action-RPG with healthy smattering of Souls-like mechanics. In other words, you'll not only need to slice and dice through large groups of enemies, but also take great care of your positioning and timing as they'll often be the only things keeping you from becoming a colorful stain on the floor.

Since the combat system is the very core of Achilles, and also something that happens to be tricky to describe through words alone, allow me to stop yammering and instead share with you the original reveal trailer. It should clue you in quite quickly on just what Achilles: Legends Untold is trying to do. Have a peek:

If this looks like the sort of gameplay style you could see yourself getting into, you'll be happy to hear that Achilles: Legends Untold is currently running an Open Beta. Simply head on over to Steam, request access to the beta, and you'll be ready to die over and over again in no time!

Speaking of which, the beta will last until February 10th, which should give you plenty of time to experience just what Achilles: Legends Untold is all about. As for the actual launch, Achilles: Legends Untold will be heading into Early Access in Q2 2022, though no exact date has been given just yet.

Have fun with the beta, and if you're interested in learning a bit more about Achilles: Legends Untold you should head on over to the official website.
