Ubisoft announced quite a few bits and bobs today, but the opening act of re-revealing Gods & Monsters – now called Immortals Fenyx Rising – was a great move, as it was easily one of the strongest showings.
Ubisoft has released a couple of trailers for the game since the initial reveal, but now we’ve got extended gameplay directly from Ubisoft, complete with developer commentary providing some insight into the game’s re-working as a whimsical open-world game. It’s a good 11-minutes long and full of interesting info, so definitely give this one a watch if you’re interested in Ubisoft’s latest open-world action game with a twist.
Immortals Fenyx Rising is a fresh and witty take on the open-world action-adventure genre, featuring dynamic action, combat and stories inspired by Greek mythology. Roam freely across a beautifully stylized world and use extraordinary abilities gifted by the gods against fearsome mythological monsters. Treacherous trials, heroic feats and the very underworld itself await your bravery.
