Codemasters has confirmed that men-in-loin-cloth hack and slash Rise of the Argonauts won’t arrive on UK shores until February 6, 2009.
The publisher said earlier this week that the game will be hitting Europe and North America this side of Christmas on December 12th and 16th, respectively, leaving the UK version to wallow in the post-holiday blues.
The mythological adventure revolves around Greek king Jason’s quest to resurrect his deceased wife, Alceme, by obtaining an elusive item known as the Golden Fleece. Joining him in his escapades is a band of buff blokes known as the Argonauts, who assist Jason as he traverses perilous Islands and lays waste to hulking, mythical beasts.
The game will be available for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 platforms.
