Titan Quest Gameplay
Titan Quest is an RPG based on Ancient Greece and Egypt mythology. It will take players to explore the realistic ancient world locations where good and evil forces will converge in an epic battle. You will have to stand in defence of this world, destroyed by the enmity between the old and new gods.
Titan Quest, an action RPG set in the legends and myths of the ancient world, first saw the light of day in 2006. Mighty titans have broken out of their imprisonment and intend to destroy the world. The gods alone cannot cope with this threat, so a legendary hero must lead the fight. Find yourself in the middle of epic events and decide the fate of men and gods.
Travelling through the legendary places of antiquity you will fight hordes of different monsters and beasts, among which you will meet centaurs and cyclopes, hydras and gorgons. Thanks to the branched out class system, numerous and modified skills and abilities; you'll be able to develop your character differently. Additionally, Titan Quest features a multiplayer mode where up to six players can join forces against monsters by going on an adventure together.
You can only choose the gender, the tunic colour, and the hero's name in the character editor. The first steps beginner fights evil in ancient Greece. Here, players will visit Sparta, meet King Leonidas, and no less famous characters and creatures. After several level-ups, the hero will choose the first branch of skills, and after the eighth - the second. By mixing abilities from two different styles, the player can obtain one of the twenty-eight classes. It is also necessary to distribute points between the parameters of strength, endurance, intelligence and dexterity, and invest in life and energy at each new level.
Unlike the similar game Diablo, the character's class in Titan Quest is not determined during the creation. Instead of that, it's formed of the two specializations during the gameplay. For example, a "pure" warrior by level eight can become a combat mage, an assassin or a conqueror, depending on whether he chose the branch of fire, hunting or defence, respectively. The same way an ordinary sorcerer becomes a blacksmith, oracle, illusionist, and even some kind of druid or summoner. There are over thirty combinations in total, and each profession is in perfect balance with the others.
The game locations are not randomly generated, and it means that on the second playthrough you will be running in the same places and finding the same quests. But it doesn't mean that the developers didn't prepare surprises. After the game on the first difficulty, you will get the second, and then the third one. And only starting from the second difficulty new, legendary items will fall to you and new bosses, that you won't meet during the first walkthrough.
Although Iron Lore used classic gameplay mechanics for Titan Quest, the atmosphere and flexible role-playing system work better than expected. Players still love the game, so it's no surprise that it has been refined and re-released for the new audience.
