BackgroundAs the King of Iolcus, Jason had everything – a prosperous kingdom, the respect of his peers and a
beautiful fiancé. But when she was assassinated on their wedding day, Jason vowed to take
revenge on her killers – to do anything to restore her life and earn back the respect of his subjects.
To accomplish this heroic feat, Jason must seek out the Golden Fleece and with the help of Greek
mythology’s greatest heroes, set sail on the most epic voyage of all.
GameplayTaking the role of Jason, players
will battle alongside Hercules, Achilles and other Argonauts as they engage in brutal combat against
formidable beasts and enemies, in a vast world alive with wondrous inhabitants and stunning
panoramas. The search for the Golden Fleece is not only one of exploration but of transformation:
from warrior king to exalted hero touched by the gods.
- Streamlined RPG Experience – Gamers will spend more time playing and less time micro-managing inventory and resources through a streamlined HUD and inventory system. Players can earn unique powers and abilities, but avoid tedious record keeping by dedicating deeds to a god of choice. Characters become stronger with armour and weapons upgrades significant in scope, leaving enemies nearly helpless. Players must learn to appease the Gods and interact wisely with those they encounter , as decisions impact the story flow and available missions.
- Unleash Devastating Attacks – Players will assemble the most effective team of Argonauts for each mission to put the best battle plan forward. Lethal combinations of weapons and powers granted by the Gods, combined with the battle-tested loyalty of the Argonauts, make Jason a devastating force in combat. Players will change weapons on the fly to outmanoeuvre and inflict lethally devastating attacks on opponents, decapitating them with swords or cutting them in half with shields.
- Mythological Ancient Greece Brought to Life – Players will battle deadly foes, fearsome opponents and legendary monsters while experiencing a living, breathing and vivid ancient world taking players far beyond the generic broken statues and ruins that so often define the myth. The thrill of battle and intensity of action is strengthened through Tyler Bates’ (300 composer) epic musical score.
