When I first saw Gods & Monsters, I wasn’t too impressed if I was honest, however after what I’ve been hearing, and the new screenshots that came out, Immortals Fenyx Rising actually “looks” like an interesting game!
According to Eurogamer:
“Immortals: Fenyx Rising brings grand mythological adventure to life,” the store page’s description read. “Play as Fenyx, on a quest to save the Greek gods from a dark curse. Wield the powers of the gods to battle powerful mythological beasts in the air or on the ground, and solve ancient puzzles. The fate of the world is at stake – you are the gods’ last hope.”
Immortals Fenyx Rising is the next project from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey studio Ubisoft Quebec, and it shares some of the same DNA. You’ll once again be fighting mythological beasts such as Cyclops and Medusa, firing self-guided arrows, and venturing across a vast open-world filled with various regions.
The emphasis here of course is on a more fantastical take, free of the Assassin’s Creed series’ backstory and with a more Zelda: Breath of the Wild-inspired palette.
That last sentence is what sparked my interest in the game! I was worried that Immortals Fenyx Rising was just going to be an Assassin’s Creed Odyssey clone with cartoon graphics and was not interested at all, however, now that it had shed that mantle and embraced the Breath of the Wild mechanics, on top of reminding me of a Kid Icarus game we might have something on our hears if done right!
I look forward to seeing this game “officially” revealed on September 10th!
