Behold a boss battle worthy of myth and legend in this upcoming PC & Console action RPG.
Publisher tinyBuild and developer Acme Gamestudio welcome all to the Guerrilla Collective arena for a first peek at one of the titanic clashes in Asterigos: Curse Of The Stars. Coming to consoles and PC and Inspired by both Greek & Roman mythology, Asterigos takes players deep into the heart of the cursed city of Aphes, its streets patrolled by swarms of monsters and powerful beasts. Take a look at one of them—Eulalia, the Harpy Queen—in action below.
The battle against Eulalia highlights the strengths and scope of combat in Asterigos. Players will have to adapt to battle at long and close range, tackling both the transformed songstress and her harpy minions in a deadly, graceful dance. Think you’re up to the challenge in this ‘souls-like’ action RPG? Wishlist the game on Steam now and prepare for battle later this year.
Asterigos holds more than just dramatic setpiece battles. Playing as young warrior Hilda, players will delve into the streets, tunnels, and marble courtyards of Aphes on a quest to unravel its secrets, and perhaps break the curse once and for all. A good eye for hidden paths will be key, as well as mastery of a wide variety of weapons. Sword-and-shield, dual blades, spears, hammers all have their own strengths. For warriors who favor a ranged approach, mystical staves and bracelets provide magical options as well.
Harpies are just one of the many threats awaiting in Aphes. With over twenty boss battles and dozens of regular enemy types to cross blades with, the city will test Hilda and her skills to breaking point. Tackle dangerous side-quests as you face increasingly deadly threats. Track down forgotten documents, and piece together Hilda’s own diary to bring the truth to light.
Asterigos also stands as a showcase of the power of the Unreal engine, and what smaller studios can accomplish with it. Featuring detailed, cinematic animation and a world full of gorgeous vistas to behold, Taiwanese team Acme Gamestudio are bringing their A-Game.
