Greek mythology meets The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in the gorgeous new action-adventure from the Ubisoft team behind Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Like a vibrant painting come to life in Gods & Monsters players will take on the role of Fenyx in an open-world quest to restore power to the Greek gods.
As seen in the following announcement trailer, it looks wonderful.
In Gods & Monsters players embody Fenyx, a forgotten hero on a quest to restore power to the Greek gods after it was stolen by Typhon, the deadliest creature in Greek mythology. Players will explore the Isle of the Blessed and prove their heroism as they face dangerous mythological creatures, including fearsome Gorgons and Harpies and mighty Cyclopes. Gifted with special powers from the gods of Olympus, players must overcome treacherous dungeons, challenging trials and perform heroic feats on their journey to save the gods.
A storybook adventure at heart, Gods & Monsters features a lively and colorful open world to discover. Players will roam freely on the ground and glide in the air, taking advantage of their extraordinary abilities to explore this vibrant world full of surprises, epic battles, quests and fantastical creatures. The journey will be as challenging and rewarding as the destination, and players will emerge as the heroes they were meant to become.
As a departure from Assassin's Creed, this focus on Greek mythology and fantasy is both fresh and exciting. A sentiment shared by the team.
“Over the last 10 years, I have had the chance to be part of an incredible team that has pushed the limits of Assassin’s Creed to explore historical periods from a unique angle. But our imagination has always been bound to the reality of the history books. Through our work on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey these past four years, our minds have lingered on another aspect of our history – mythology. Today, with Gods & Monsters, the tales we all love and know so well become a reality to be explored like never before,” said Marc-Alexis Côté, senior producer at Ubisoft Quebec.
As per the intro, there are definite Breath of the Wild vibes coming off Gods & Monsters. So we can't wait to play it when it launches February 25, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia.
