In August of last year, Real Boxing developer Vivid Games announced Godfire: Rise of Prometheus, a visually impressive third-person action-adventure game with a Greek Mythology theme. Those initial screens had us pretty interested, but a teaser trailer the following month that showed off Godfire's killer art style and massive boss fights got us really excited. Then, this past March at GDC, I had the chance to go hands-on with Godfire and it pretty much exceeded my expectations. Today, Vivid has released yet another trailer for Godfire, along with a release window of June. The new trailer is really impressive, check it out.

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus really surprised me during my hands-on time at GDC. Typically, combat heavy games like this benefit from being restricted somewhat in order to make for good touchscreen controls, like the Infinity Blade games. But Godfire is a smart blend of both open-world exploration and semi-restricted combat sequences. It works really, really well, and I'm more than a little excited to get my hands on the final version. Vivid isn't being any more specific than June for a release date, but they've stated in our forums that there's an "awesome announcement coming very, very soon" regarding Godfire, so stay tuned as there's definitely more to be revealed.

    Holy shit! Thats all i can say, this is the sort of epicness i expect from iOS gaming, seriously juiced for this. And the combat does not even look rigid! The characters are animated and move like they would in darksiders or god of war! Hope its premium, who am i kidding id still download it if it was freemium haha
