Rise of the Argonauts

New developer video offers a peek behind the scenes at Liquid Entertainment.

Monday 14th July/... Discover what will make Rise of the Argonauts ™ a unique epic action RPG experience, in a new developer commentary video from Liquid Entertainment, released today by Codemasters® and now available to view and download from www.rise-of-the-argonauts.co.uk.

In the Immersive Game Experience video, Liquid Entertainment’s President Ed Del Castillo and Lead Designer Charley Price reveal the thought process behind the creation of Rise of the Argonauts ™ and its express aim of creating a role-playing game like no other. Key to this was streamlining the traditional RPG menu systems, ensuring that the player is always immersed in the extreme Greek mythology action.

In Rise of the Argonauts , Jason and his trusted band of Argonauts embark on a quest to find the Golden Fleece and revive his beloved slain wife while exploring the vast Aegean – a dynamic world of forbidding islands, shining cities, lush jungles and deep forests – in a vibrant realization of ancient Greece. As Jason, players will carve a unique journey through the game world as their choices bring favour with the gods, shape the plot, change the outcome of quests and open up new story arcs.

Mixing deep exploration, grand-scale quests and gladiatorial combat in a story powered by the timeless motives of love and vengeance, Rise of the Argonauts is coming this autumn for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Games For Windows®.
