- Achilles: Legends Untold — Dark Point Games’ debut title — was released on November 2, 2023.

2023 has been the year for high innovation in the gaming industry, and as far as Soulslikes go, a myriad of those have come out, gracing this heightened-difficulty genre. Achilles: Legends Untold while avoiding to follow in the same footsteps ends up pulling its own thing off in a way that feels unique and authentic. It’s an action RPG that features one of the greatest Greek warriors of all time taking center stage—Achilles.
eXputer had the privilege to interview Dark Point Games — the studio that has helmed Achilles: Legends Untold — in recent times to go over the game’s development, its inspirations, and some of the challenges that the developing team had to tackle as they went about manifesting the title. Catch up with the entire read ahead for all of the interesting bit.
Achilles: Legends Untold recently came out of early access but with a complete makeover to keep it appealing for both old and new players. Though this might be Dark Point Games’ first title, the decision to make these changes over time and implement them with a team of 13 is nothing short of impressive. Now, after delivering a game that both Soulslike and hack-and-slash players somehow enjoy, the devs are moving on to their next project.
That doesn’t mean the studio has taken its hands off of Achilles, as it has continued to polish the title post-launch. Nevertheless, the upcoming project called “Brightness” has been in development for three months, and the studio should share more information on that in the future. Until then, you can snatch Achilles: Legends Untold with a 30% discount, which will end November 16, 2023.
