Ubisoft’s ‘Immortals Fenyx Rising’ Targets December 3rd Release
Immortals Fenyx Rising first hit public awareness as Gods & Monsters, but I’m feeling this title a bit more and if I’m being totally honest after seeing the gameplay I’m 100% sold no matter what they called it.
Looking a bit like Ubisoft’s take on Breath of the Wild, Immortals Fenyx Rising allows you to explore a world that’s populated with all kinds of flora and fauna, building your character as you go with a progression system that’s every bit as in-depth as you expect from an Ubisoft title. I’m interested in seeing if it can provide the same kind of free-form shenanigans that Breath of the Wild is known for…
Here’s the playlist – expect to hear a lot more about this one before the early-December release date:
SAVE THE GODS AND PROVE YOUR HEROISM IN IMMORTALS FENYX RISING™, AVAILABLE DECEMBER 3
Wield the Power of the Gods and Battle Fearsome Mythological Beasts in an Epic Fight for the Ages
Montreal – SEPTEMBER 10 – Today at Ubisoft Forward, the company announced Immortals Fenyx Rising™, formerly known as Gods & Monsters, will be available worldwide on December 3, 2020 for Stadia, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ system, PlayStation®4, Epic Games, the Ubisoft Store, UPLAY+, Ubisoft’s subscription service* and will release on PlayStation®5 upon the launch of the console.**
Developed by the team at Ubisoft Quebec, creators of Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey, Immortals Fenyx Rising is an exciting new IP that takes grand mythological adventure to new heights.*** 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.
In Immortals Fenyx Rising, players will be able to make Fenyx their own with a wide range of customization options available. Progression is varied, centered on the Hall of the Gods where players can upgrade Fenyx’s health, stamina or god-given abilities. In addition to upgrading Fenyx, the weapons, armor, and potions used can also be enhanced by defeating enemies and opening chests throughout the world.
The journey will be as challenging and rewarding as the destination, and players will emerge as the heroes they are meant to become.
The Gold Edition of Immortals Fenyx Rising will include the base game, Season Pass and additional in-game content. All pre-orders will include one bonus quest, A Tale of Fire and Lightening.
Additionally, all Stadia players will get a chance to try Immortals Fenyx Rising with a free playable demo before launch. With just a single click, players will be able to add the demo to their Stadia library and instantly join Fenyx on their quest to save the Greek Gods. The exclusive Stadia demo of Immortals Fenyx Rising will be playable later this year in all regions where Stadia is accessible.
