The game formally known as Gods & Monsters has been reborn, like a something rising from the something. Immortals Fenyx Rising took centre stage in the latest Ubisoft Forward event from overnight. From the same team behind the excellent Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, this time Ancient Greek setting is given a vibrant The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild-style makeover. And it's out December 3.
For *takes a deep breath*, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. With the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions getting a next-gen upgrade at no additional cost.
Check it out.
Players will embody Fenyx, a new winged demigod, on a quest to save the Greek gods and their home from a dark curse. Only by mastering the legendary powers of the gods, overcoming heroic trials and confronting powerful mythological beasts, will Fenyx be able to take on Typhon, the deadliest Titan in Greek mythology.
An exhilarating experience for all heroes at heart, the game features dynamic action gameplay, fast-paced aerial and melee combat and stories inspired by Greek mythology. Players will face off against mythological creatures like the Cyclops, Minotaur and Medusa. With the help of the Sword of Achilles, Bow of Odysseus and Wings of Daidalos, players will launch themselves up into the air to deal with the immensity of these creatures. In addition to combat, players’ logic and strategy will be challenged by world puzzles, from small scale individual puzzles all the way up to the epic Vaults of Tartaros.
Immortals Fenyx Rising is an uplifting and witty take on the open world action adventure genre and is full of rewarding exploration through dynamic traversal. Sprint across open fields, climb enormous mountains, and glide through the skies to discover all the secrets of the seven unique regions inspired by the Greek Gods across the Golden Isle.
And here's a deep dive into the gameplay.
Comparisons to Breath of the Wild aside this looks awesome. Sure, with a very Greek surname I might be a little biased -- but this feels like the sort of 2020 Kid Icarus we didn't know we needed.
Stay tuned as we'll be bringing you our own hands-on deep-dive into Immortals Fenyx Rising soon.
