Immortals Fenyx Rising

Today during the Ubisoft Forward livestream event we got our first look at Immortals Fenyx Rising, the game formerly known as Gods & Monsters. We got word at the end of last month that the game was undergoing a title change, and it looks like that information was spot on. In the game, you play as Fenyx, the hero of the Gods, protecting the world from Typhon, the strongest of the Titans.

Following the Immortals Fenyx Rising reveal trailer, Ubisoft covered some of the basic gameplay elements that you’ll encounter during the game. Fenyx is completely customizable, and the world is filled with unique pieces of weapon and armor you can find and equip.

You also have access to several abilities granted by the gods, including the wings of Daedalus and Hephaestus’ hammer. You can upgrade Fenyx’s stats, like her stamina, by uncovering items like Zeus’ lightning bolts in secret dungeons. From the looks of the trailer, Immortals Fenyx Rising appears to have a heavy loot presence in the game’s very Breath of the Wild-style open world.

Rescue the Gods, save the world

After the show there was some more gameplay. The additional video shows Fenyx fighting a minotaur by dodging and using her avian companion, Phosphorus, to firebomb the creature. There will be plenty of dungeons for players to explore. Scattered throughout are coins of Charon, which can be used to buy new skills and abilities.

We also got to see a fast-travel option, where Fenyx traverses to the Hall of the Gods. This is the game’s hub world, where all those items and coins can be used to power her up and purchase upgrades. The gameplay showcase ended with Fenyx facing off against a corrupted robot originally built by Hephaestus.

The trailer also let us know that Immortals Fenyx Rising will release on December 3 for PC via Uplay. It will also have a demo exclusive to Google Stadia sometime later this year. We kind of already knew about it, since a very early demo build of the game leaked a few months back. That was when the game was still called Gods & Monsters and looked quite different.
