Codemasters Releases New Screens for Rise of the Argonauts
We have not heard much about Rise of the Argonauts lately, so when I noticed a post about the RPG on Gamertell my interest was piqued again. Due sometime this year for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 this has been one of the games I have looked forward to the most, even though information on it has been sparse of late.
Although the story that Codemasters has written up for the game is not very close to the original mythology, many of the same creatures, heroes, themes, and villains will be featured. The gods are also always present during Jason’s quests, and like most trifling Greek gods – you can please some while displeasing others. Earning a god’s favor will grant players powers within the god’s domain, but drawing a god’s wrath may cause them to inflict a torment on the heroes at the worst possible moment. Apollo, Ares, Athena, and Hermes are the main Olympians you will be dealing with, so finding the right balance when trying to please them all will be a big challenge.
