Apotheon is a rare breed in the action-RPG space — a game that doesn't rely so much on gear gating or other mechanics you'd typically expect from a game of its ilk. Instead, the game (which launched on Steam and PlayStation 4 last week) pretty much gives you the run of its environment, a Grecian Urn-inspired take on Mount Olympus, and forces you to overcome new challenges with each deity you square off against. Just when you think you've got Apotheon figured out — boom! — you're transformed into a deer. Good luck hacking and slashing now, deer.
