Achilles: Legends Untold News

Patch 0.1.2

Hey everyone! We've fixed the 'Fatal Error' crash some players with Nvidia cards were experiencing, and made a variety of other improvements to the game based on player feedback. Thank you for your patience and for taking the time to leave detailed and valuable feedback and bug reports!

We'll continue to release regular patches to improve Achilles: Legends Untold throughout Early Access!

Below are the updates made to Achilles: Legends Untold in Patch 0.1.2.:
  • Fatal Error crash when launching the game on certain Nvidia cards has been fixed.
  • Player interaction with Hades Shrines, Ladders, and descent to the basement has been improved.
  • Added Difficulty select option. Players will now be prompted at the beginning of the game to choose difficulty, but can also change at any time during the game. The easier difficulty option improves Achilles' speed and stamina efficiency, while also altering enemy behavior. Achilles' base damage and health remain the same.
  • 6 new Hades Shrines have been added. 3 in the first area, 1 near the Forge, and 2 in the Dark Forest.
  • Performance has been improved. FPS performance in Greece in particular, as well as momentary game freezes.
  • Balance improved for Bosses and larger enemies. Their health has been increased to be more of a challenge.
  • Item drop rates have been increased. Most notably from the Cyclops.
  • Fixed a variety of collision issues with the environment. Achilles will get stuck less often.


We're monitoring all platforms for player feedback, though the best way to chat with the team and compare notes with other community members is in our Discord server.

Known Issues and Player Feedback

Player feedback is incredibly important to us, and is a big reason why we brought the game to Early Access. Your feedback will help us make Achilles: Legends Untold the best it can be.

[h2]Co-op[/h2]
We are aware of the performance issues players are experiencing in our co-op game mode. The team is working hard to address and fix these issues as soon as possible.

[h2]Known Issues[/h2]
Below is a list of other issues and bugs in the game that we are aware of so far. These are all actively being worked on.
  • Despawning Skeleton King and other bosses
    Exiting the game during the Skeleton King boss fight can cause issues after reloading the game. Players will get back to the boss arena and despawn the Skeleton King, locking themselves into the arena. Other boss fights might have the same issue

  • Getting stuck in environment
    In some cases, players can get hard-stuck in some environments. In rare cases, players need to restart the game entirely, as only reloading the game may have Achilles still stuck in the same position

  • Visual bugs when opening the equipment menu during portal travel
    Opening the equipment menu during portal travel may break the camera settings and cause the Achilles model to disappear from the equipment menu screen

  • Unable to interact with Shrines after potion teleport
    Using teleport to home potions during combat can cause problems with some interactive objects, mainly Hades Shrines. To fix it players will have to leave to the main menu and get back to the game.

  • Chiron's armor visual bug
    Wearing Chiron's Armor may distort Achilles' look in gameplay.

  • Firtos quest completion bug
    Dying during the fight with the three scorpions may cause an issue where one scorpion despawns, leaving the player unable to finish the quest.

  • King Scorpio completion bug
    Dying or leaving a fight with King Scorpio may cause him to de-spawn leaving the player unable to finish the quest.

  • Fullscreen/Windowed selection not saving
    Changing video settings to fullscreen or windowed fullscreen may not be saved in config file.

  • Fall through world at Chronos' temple
    On the wooden stairs close to Chronos’ temple it's possible for the player to sometimes fall through the world

  • Inconsistent co-op animation
    In co-op, low FPS on the host will cause jumpy animations on the client side.

  • Teleporting to Mountain Forest issue
    Interaction with the portal to Mountain Forest may cause game freeze

  • Equipment screen crash
    Opening the equipment menu at the exact time a tutorial message pops up may cause the game to freeze or crash

  • Cronos before Hephaestus blocking progression
    Entering Chronos’ temple before releasing Hephaestus can block progression in the main story line

  • Falling through world in the lower dungeon
    In some instances, entering the lower dungeon level can sometimes lead to falling through the world

  • Avast Antivirus false positive
    Avast antivirus can report false positive virus detection. We have confirmation from Avast that Achilles is verified and should not cause this issue

  • Localization issues
    Players may encounter some localization issues in languages other than English – missing translations, some text boxes might be empty or have text from other languages

  • Co-op Dungeon completion bug
    In rare cases during co-op, players may encounter issues that make dungeon completion impossible

  • Collision with objects bug
    In Greece, there are rare occasions where the player may get stuck in objects or fall through the map. Exiting to the main menu and selecting ‘Continue’ should fix the problem

  • Erratic enemy AI
    Sometimes enemies may act erratic, or in rare cases stop fighting the player entirely

  • Unobtainable loot
    In rare cases, loot drops from enemies may spawn outside the playable area and be unobtainable by the player

  • Completed quests shown as ongoing
    Some completed quests may be displayed in the journal as ‘ongoing’

We're working hard on fixing these bugs and we appreciate your patience. We will continue to be transparent with the community on what we are working on with the game throughout Early Access.

We welcome feedback and other bug reports in our Discord, on our social accounts, and in the Steam forums.

Thank you for your passion and support for Achilles: Legends Untold!

Achilles: Legends Untold is available NOW in Early Access!

[h2]Launch day has arrived![/h2]
[previewyoutube][/previewyoutube]
Hey everyone! We're so excited to finally launch Achilles: Legends Untold into Early Access! Our small team has worked hard to deliver on our vision of making a challenging, but rewarding Souls-like experience featuring the legendary warrior Achilles ⚔️.

[h3]Early Access[/h3]
Early Access is just the beginning of our journey! We have a full campaign that we'll continue to add content to as we approach the full release of the game, and we'll be listening to all community feedback to help us shape Achilles: Legends Untold into the best game possible.

[h3]Roadmap[/h3]
We'll reveal more of our plans for the game throughout Early Access, but here's what you can expect in the short term:
  • Twitch Integration - We want to help audiences engage with their favorite Twitch streamers during gameplay. We'll be adding the ability for viewers to vote on whether they REWARD or PUNISH streamers. It's up to the audience whether they choose kindness, or chaos.
  • Arenas - We'll be introducing portals to transport you from Greece to the depths of Tartarus. These challenging combat arenas will pit you against waves of enemies and powerful bosses.
  • New Boss - Another boss from Greek Mythology. We won't reveal the surprise quite yet... ♊




Thank you to everyone for playing Achilles: Legends Untold! We hope you enjoy the game, and be sure to leave us feedback on any of our social media accounts, or in our Discord server below!
