In Warriors: Legends of Troy, you'll be able to play out the Trojan War from the perspective of either the Greeks or the Trojans with two separate storylines for each. It's like Wolfgang Petersen's epic Troy movie, except you bash buttons like Y or X rather than fast forward or stop.
Boasting a combat system for long and short range attacks, you'll step into the sandals of warriors like Achilles (watch out for his heel), Ajax and Odysseus for the Greeks or Aeneas, Hector and Paris for the Trojans. Warriors: Legends of Troy is also set to feature support for 4-player co-op and competitive multiplayer.
Legends of Troy is influenced by Homer's (not that one) poem 'The Illiad', but will also incorporate a range of mythological elements, meaning you'll take on mythical creatures from Greek and Trojan folklore in what looks to be an array of sandy/rocky arenas - based on the real locations, apparently - if these 41 new screens showing the 'Blood' and 'Conquest' modes are any kind of indication.
Warriors: Legends of Troy sails into stores on March 8th in North America and Macrh 25th in Europe.
