It’s official, the open world action adventure Immortal Fenyx Rising (formerly known as Gods & monsters) comes to Nintendo Switch on December 3rd. It appears that last week’s Microsoft Store list was correct.
As mentioned earlier, this new IP – “Taking the great mythological adventure to new heights” – was developed by the team at Ubisoft Quebec (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey). Players take control of Fenyx, a new winged demigod who must save the Greek gods and their homeland from a dark curse.
Here’s a bit more of the official PR, along with some screens and a guide to gameplay:
Only when Fenyx masters the legendary powers of the gods, overcomes heroic trials and confronts powerful mythological beasts, can he take on Typhon, the deadliest titan in Greek mythology.
The game is a thrilling experience for all heroes at heart and features dynamic action gameplay, fast-paced aerial and hand-to-hand combat, and stories inspired by Greek mythology. Players compete against mythical creatures such as the Cyclops, Minotaur and Medusa. With the help of the sword of Achilles, the bow of Odysseus and the wings of Daidalos, players will soar into the air to deal with the immensity of these creatures. In addition to combat, the logic and strategy of the players are challenged by world puzzles, from small individual puzzles to the epic vaults of Tartaros.
Immortal̵7;s Fenyx Rising is an uplifting and hilarious take on the open-world action-adventure genre and is full of rewarding exploration through dynamic traversal. Sprint across open fields, climb huge mountains and slide through the sky to discover all the secrets of the seven unique regions inspired by the Greek gods about the Golden Island.
In Immortals Fenyx Rising, players can make Fenyx their own with a variety of customization options. The progression is varied and centered around the Hall of the Gods, where players can improve Fenyx’s health, stamina, or god-given skills. In addition to upgrading Fenyx, the weapons, armor, and potions used can be upgraded by defeating enemies and opening chests around the world.
The journey will be as challenging and rewarding as the destination, and players will become the heroes they are meant to become.
