I respect the direction developer Ubisoft has taken with the DLC for Immortals Fenyx Rising. It’s expected these days to view story DLC as “what you already played, but a bit more.” The DLC for Immortals Fenyx Rising has offered to take you back to its world, sure, but often by providing something completely distinct each time. Myths of the Eastern Realm introduced a new protagonist in a story inspired by Chinese myth. The latest DLC for Immortals Fenyx Rising, The Lost Gods, brings not only another new character to play, but a whole different perspective.
The Lost Gods effectively turns the once third-person RPG into something more akin to Hades. You play through the world under a top-down camera, using a couple new moves to dispatch waves of baddies. Cutscenes are still close up, starring the usual gods and heroes. However, in regular gameplay the camera stays high in the air, giving you an overhead view of the world.
Combat is described as “brawler style,” which encompasses heavy attacks matched with some new moves. Catastrophe Quake is an earth-shattering stomp, which you can see being used with relish in the new trailer. The other ability is Nature’s Fury, which is basically a beam that does damage over time.
Gotta collect ’em all
The new character you play in Immortals Fenyx Rising – The Lost Gods is Ash. You can still customize them to your desire, of course. In the DLC, Ash is pretty much on cleanup duty. Their job is to be the very best, like no one ever was. Collecting missing gods is the test, and bringing them home is their cause. Right, sorry about that. In sum, Fenyx, the new god of the land, tasks Ash to find the other missing gods and return them to the Pantheon. During you quest, you face off against beasts of Greek myth such as Medusa, the cyclops, and even corrupted heroes.
Immortals Fenyx Rising – The Lost Gods is out today on all platforms. It’s available as part of the game’s season pass, which is discounted at $10 USD off at the Ubisoft Store. Otherwise, you can pick it up for $14.99.
