Independent Taiwanese studio Acme on their microblog presented The debut trailer for its antique action RPG Asterigos for PC and the latest PlayStation consoles.
The events of Asterigos unfold in the fallen mythical city of Ephesus, where the main character, the warrior Hilda from the legion of the North Wind, arrives in search of her lost father.
In the once majestic metropolis, Hilda will see how history is being made before her eyes, and face a difficult choice that will determine the fate of the entire kingdom.
On the territory of the ancient city, Hilde will have to fight the cursed animals, armed “By the power of the gods”… Speech, apparently, about the six types of weapons available in Asterigos.
In particular, the Asterigos arsenal will offer sword with shield, twin blades, a spear, hammer, staff and magic bracelets… How Hilda handles them can be seen in the short gameplay cutscenes attached to the names of the weapons.
Among other things, Asterigos developers promise free exploration of the environment, customizable fighting styles, challenging battles and “Gripping storytelling” from different points of view.
Asterigos is being created for PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on the Unreal Engine 4. The release is expected in the spring of 2022 on PC and PS4, and the game should reach PS5 only in the fall of the same year.
