Game News Asterigos: the Zelda-like with Greek mythology sauce is exhibited at the Summer Game Fest 2022
Zelda Breath of the Wild will have inspired more than one, like Immortal Fenyx Rising. And Immortal Fenix Rising will have inspired at least some, like Asterigos.
Asterigos & Obeligos
In 2021, we learned of the existence ofAsterigos : Curse of the Stars, an action-RPG set in full Greek mythology… and developed by a Taiwanese studio, ACME Gamestudios. It embodies Hilda, a warrior in search of her father in the cursed city of Aphes: on her way then stand many fearsome creatures, such as harpies or centaurs.
It was during the Guerrilla Collective, a showcase broadcast as part of the Summer Game Fest 2022, that the adventure game showed up again with a never-before-seen gameplay video, featuring a boss fight. And the inspirations are… obvious.
Between Immortal Fenix Rising and Zelda Breath of the Wild
Asterigos actually looks just like Immortals Fenyx Rising, action-adventure game spawned by Ubisoft at the end of 2020. This one was precisely located in Greek mythology, offering a very, very similar camera and combos. It was also largely inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wildresuming the system of endurance, climbing or aerial flight.
Asterigos will be released in the fall of 2022 on PC, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
