Game developer Acme Gamestudio has announced action RPG Asterigos for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. It will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC by late spring 2022, followed by PlayStation 5 in late fall 2022.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Asterigos features free exploration in an ancient Rome and classical Greek-inspired city complex, customizable styles of combat, challenging encounters, and immersive storytelling.

Looks like a fun AA Soulslike.

As far as art style is concerned, looks very much like Immortals Fenyx Rising to me. Which is not a bad thing IMHO, quite liked that one.
For the art style i agree. Not a big fan of it personally though (same goes for IFR) but it's passable. It's the gameplay that makes it interesting to me.

A mostly cinematic trailer narrated in the style of reading a bedtime story to children does not appeal to me. I need to see more of the gameplay to know if it’s worth playing.

The art style in general looks okay (very “standard”), but the main character and her animations/expressions in cutscenes look like those late 90s low budget 3D animations, except with updated models and textures.

Looks pretty decent, maybe a bit jank but I'm assuming this is a small developer. The frame rate looks a bit inconsistent is these previews though, it'd make a big difference if they get it to run at a consistent 60.

Ooh, I missed this one. Looks decent enough to throw on the wishlist to keep an eye on. Quick Steam link in case anyone else feels the same.
