Gods & Monsters is an anticipated Nintendo Switch game that is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec, the same team that worked on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The similarities between both games can be noticed instantly, a mythological world highly dependent on ancient Greek mythology and culture. Gods & Monsters was announced back in 2019 but its release date has been pushed forward since then and we haven’t heard much news about it since, until now.
Reports have claimed that Ubisoft has renamed the open-world action adventure to Immortals Fenyx Rising and we expect to hear more about the game on September 10th during the Ubisoft Forward broadcast. The game gives you the role of Fenyx, a hero, called upon by the gods to help them regain their former glory. You will fight powerful mythological creatures during your adventure and encounter iconic mythological characters.
Several news outlets have compared the theme and gameplay of Gods & Monsters to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That may be true and it is not a bad thing at all, but a successful formula to live up to. The game certainly looks interesting from what we have seen so far. New reports that came out recently suggested that the game will launch on December 3rd but this can be verified soon and we will keep you updated.
Finally, an interesting feature in the game is that the game’s lore will be narrated to you by Homer, the ancient Greek poet. Equally exciting is that you will be able to face off against mythological creatures such as Typhon, Gorgons, Cyclopes, and Hydras. If you are interested in this game, stay tuned with us as we learn more about it on September 10th and update you about it on this website. You can watch the cinematic trailer for it below.
